I endeavor to leave a positive impact wherever I go. As a result, others look forward to my visits and the good effects roll over to me, too!Â In the mornings, I help my family get started in a good mood. I prepare clothes the night before and keep bags by the door to avoid a stressful and panicky morning rush.
At work, I encourage a peaceful, productive environment. I avoid participating in gossip and office politics, and my co-workers feel confident around me. I am sure to give sincere compliments to others for a job well done.Â My clients enjoy doing business with me because I give great service and go out of my way to give them a good experience. I show them appreciation for their business.
At the supermarket, I am patient with a mother counting out change for her baby’s formula. I give generously to charity. I open doors for others and give them a warm smile.Â I make it a point to say, “Thank you,” and I make my discussions encouraging and optimistic.
In these small ways, I know that I make a positive difference to some one life.Â In the evenings, my family has dinner together and we share our day with each other. We use the meal as a time to catch up, share our plans for the future, and show our support for each family member.
Today, I plan to step up my positive impact efforts and help a stranger in need.
Self-Reflection Questions: 1. What kind of effect do I have on others?
