The word has many meanings depending on the topic.

Generically defined as ‘To have a strong effect on someone or something.’

Impact can be either Negative or Positive.

Being impactful may mean you have a relationship with an individual or organization.

Impact can be intentional or not.

I always had hopes and dreams of making an impact someday. Someday when I reached a certain income level and could afford to donate enough money to a cause to make a difference.

There were two flaws in my thinking

FLAW #1 – giving money was the only way to make impact.

I was raised to make an impact on others daily, no matter how small or how large.

Here are a few examples of what I mean

• Compliment the first three people you talk to today.

• Send a positive text message to five people you haven’t talked to in a while.

• Post inspirational sticky notes around your neighborhood, office, school, etc.

• Donate old towels or blankets to an animal shelter.

• Say hi to the person next to you on the elevator.

• Let someone go in front of you in line who only has a few items.

• Hold the door for the person behind you.

Could everyone that read this, just do one of these things EVERY DAY for a week. Every good deed hopefully inspires that person to do something nice for someone else. From one person to the next. It is a Chain of Inspiration that gets stronger and stronger with each link that is added to make our community great tomorrow than it was today.

FLAW #2 – That to make an impact I would have to donate a large sum of money

To overcome this flawed way of thinking, ImpactClub® was developed to help ordinary people like you and me pitch in and make a much larger impact, on our local charities, together as a group.
