Making An Impact

What does making an impact mean to you?

Is it about creating great wealth, leaving a legacy or both?

For many years I chased the dollar and spent a lot of time looking at what others were doing and tried to follow suit, then found myself not getting very far or rather finding myself feeling more stressed at my slow pace.

When I decided to stop following the crowd and chasing the dollar I felt free and found my own space

My own space to observe rather that react and get stressed.

I found my feet, felt very comfortable in my own space and without the stress, my energy changed and I started to attract some amazing opportunities into my life.

Getting to write for Baiju is one of them even though I've been so busy my writing has been very sporadic to say the least and sorry about that.

To be honest I write for EnSpirit Global more than I write for my own sites but I'm ok with that because I know everything is playing out as it should be, and the universe has my back as she always has done, but I've been too dumb and pig headed to listen before.

So my impact right now is working on my #5ThingsClear initiative which I have written about here before and 12 months ago I would never in my wildest dreams thought I would be doing something like this.

Hey even 6 months ago even but, in letting go of the stress and all the chasing my mind had space to think again and get creative and then look what happened.

So in conclusion if you are trying hard to make an impact then maybe stop trying and start listening and relaxing back into the flow of the universe. Breathe for god's sake and listen. Take up meditating maybe and in the space of clarity you will start to see clearer I promise.

You may find some amazing solutions to help propel you forward quicker than you thought possible or, the universe may take you on a totally different path which could lead to making a huge impact but, you won't know until you stop and start to listen.

Enjoy the journey my friend
