I aim to leave a positive impact wherever I go. As a result, others look forward to spending time in my space and the good feeling spills over to me, too!
In the mornings, I help my family get started in a good mood. I prepare clothes the night before and keep backpacks by the door to prevent a stressful and frantic morning rush.
At work, I encourage a peaceful, productive atmosphere. I refuse to participate 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.
My clients enjoy doing business with me because I go out of my way to give them a good experience and I show them appreciation for their business.
At the grocery store, I am patient with a harried mother counting out change for her baby’s formula. I share a smile and laughter with the people I encounter.
I make it a point to say, “Thank you,” and I make my conversations encouraging and optimistic.
In these small ways, I know that I make a positive difference in my community.
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.
