Do you want to live with lasting impact?            

A life of lasting impact is focused and powerful. It is purposeful, intentional, and is never neutral.

It may not be easily achieved, but it signifies a well-lived, meaningful life.

Here are some ways to do it:

1. Live boldly. Being scared is normal. It’s our response to fear that can immobilize us. Don’t be afraid to challenge the norm. Make a positive difference.

2. Have a purpose. People like the Apostle Paul, Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa and Steve Jobs lived with such strong purpose, and all of them left a lasting impact.

3. Put people first. Remember that relationships are more important than stuff or status. Anything achieved means nothing without people to share it with.

4. Focus and simplify life. When stripped of all excesses, life becomes so focused that it positively affects anyone it touches.

5. Stay humble. Joshua Becker said, “Humility offers its owner complete freedom from the desire to impress, be right, or get ahead.” There is so much power in humility than we can imagine.

6. Be healthy. An excellent foundation not only to look good physically, but also to feel strong and well. If you are sickly, it’s going to be hard to live with impact.

7. Serve others. We can’t have a life of lasting impact without serving people. A servant’s heart is what makes great leaders great and what earned them respect and strong influence over their followers.

8. Be disciplined. Without self-discipline, one will not be able to commit to anything, to persevere when it becomes difficult, and to make hard but necessary changes.

9. Commit to excellence. Great things happen when we give our best. May it be to family, relationships, work, finances, and health.

10. Pass on wisdom. To have lasting impact, wisdom should be passed on to reliable people who are willing to pass it to others also.

We only walk this world but once. It’s up to each of us to make the most of it.
