Have you ever told yourself you want to impact more people? Chances are if you’re reading this ezine, you want to make a difference in the lives of others. Right? You want to reach out and help other people with the challenges they’re facing. It doesn’t matter if you’re a business coach, massage therapist, voice teacher, author, speaker, chiropractor, consultant, or jewelry maker. Underneath what you “do” is the desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
Too often entrepreneurs (myself included) can get wrapped up in the “doingness” of their business. If you’ve ever had a day in which you run, run, run and do, do, do all day long and at the end of it doesn’t feel like you’ve really HELPED anyone… you know exactly what I’m talking about here. Between creating, marketing, customer service, fulfillment, administration, education, networking, writing, etc, entrepreneurs have pretty full plates. Not to mention, family, friends, spiritual endeavors, fitness/health maintenance, and all the other aspect of life.
So, let’s take it down a notch and look at what you CAN do in each and every moment to impact more people. Let’s look at who you are BEING while you are DOING… because who you are BEING is the very thing that impacts others, not the doing.
If you truly want to serve and impact more people, one valuable practice to get in the habit of is being of higher service to those people you are impacting right now. Take a moment now to think about someone in your life. It could be your spouse, client, business partner/colleague, child or friend… anyone.
Now, ask yourself if you are having the highest, most positive impact you could have on that person. Is their interaction with you uplifting them in the best way, or is it bringing them down. Look at this honestly, right now; there is no right or wrong in what you see, there’s only what is.
The next thing to ask yourself is what do you want to shift within yourself so your PRESENCE has a positive impact on others? What can open you up to being a clear and powerful channel of love in every aspect of your life?
This is how you can impact more people… be a beacon of love and light to whomever is in your presence. It’s not by doing anything in particular, it’s in how you show up with them and for them in each moment. Once you truly come from this place of being a powerful PRESENCE in which other people feel seen, heard, valued, important and loved, you will live an impactful life. You will achieve your mission of making a difference in the lives of others.
And, it is this difference, this dedication to being of service to others (in every area of your life) that will influence and impact your ability to serve more people through your business.
