Impact and fulfilment - It's not about you.

Some people go through life with a vision to feel good and to “be happy”, which is a perfectly fine goal to have, but it’s not particularly meaningful. It’s not going to provide fulfilment in the long run.

Unless we know and can see that we are making an impact in the lives of other people, we feel less valued.

Why? Because we are not doing anything valuable.


How would you feel if you created change in the world? Or even just impacted someone else every single day? You would feel pretty great, right?

People don’t remember people or businesses because of their clothes, their hair, the colours of their logo. They remember how you or your brand made them feel.

This is why figuring out your passions, your skills, and working through the things you have had to overcome can be so important and so fulfilling. To successfully facilitate change and add value, we live, and we learn, and then we pass on and guide others. We can’t make an impact when we have not been impacted ourselves.

The highest form of life fulfilment arises from helping those around
you, especially when it allows you to express your passions and experiences.

Have you ever considered what level of impact you personally want to make in life?

There are 3 levels of impact you can have:


  • 𝙿𝚎𝚛𝚜𝚘𝚗𝚊𝚕 𝚒𝚖𝚙𝚊𝚌𝚝

    • You do things that impact the current quality of your own life.


  • 𝙸𝚗𝚍𝚒𝚟𝚒𝚍𝚞𝚊𝚕 𝚒𝚖𝚙𝚊𝚌𝚝

    • You impact someone else’s life, or you impact one or a couple of people at a time, e.g. family and friends.


  • 𝙲𝚞𝚕𝚝𝚞𝚛𝚊𝚕 𝚘𝚛 𝚐𝚕𝚘𝚋𝚊𝚕 𝚒𝚖𝚙𝚊𝚌𝚝

    • You impact many people through your initiatives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Living on purpose and bringing about change requires you to be clear about your own personality. You need to know what your values are and identify your passions, strengths and weaknesses. This, with the intention to serve the greater good and meeting humanity’s needs, can lead to a life filled with purpose.

If you’re going to create something, consider how you might be able to share that experience to add value.
