Owning the Fact that You Make a Difference


Owning My Impact:
How I Take Responsibility for Creating a Better World


As a Difference Maker, it’s important for me to recognize the impact I have on the world.

Sometimes, it can feel like our efforts go unnoticed or that the problems of the world are too big for us to solve.

But the truth is, every small action we take has the potential to create a ripple of positive change and make a difference in the lives of others.

I’ve come to realize that owning the fact that I make a difference is more than just a statement – it’s a mindset.

It’s about approaching each day with intention and purpose, and being mindful of the impact my actions have on those around me.

It’s about being kind, compassionate, and treating everyone with respect and dignity.

It’s about using my voice to speak up for those who may not have a platform,
and advocating for positive change in my community and beyond.

I make a difference in the way I show up for the people in my life. I strive to be a source of love and support, to always be there for them in times of need.

I make a difference in the way I approach my work – I aim to excel and bring a positive attitude that inspires others to do the same. I also make a difference in the way I treat the environment – I am mindful of my carbon footprint and strive to make sustainable choices that benefit the planet.

So here are 5 Energy Hacks for Difference Makers who want to heal lives without burning out or facing rejection:

Embrace the Chaos
Take a deep breath and remember, it’s okay to feel overwhelmed. Embracing the chaos allows you to face it head-on, like a fearless warrior ready to conquer the wild unknown.

Find Your Zen
Take some time for yourself. Whether it’s a few minutes of meditation, a quick walk, or a power nap, finding your inner peace is key to staying grounded in the eye of the storm.

Prioritize Like a Pro
Break down your to-do list into bite-sized chunks. Tackle the most urgent tasks first and then work your way down. You’ve got this, one step at a time!

Spread Positivity
Even in the midst of chaos, a little positivity goes a long way! Share some good vibes with your colleagues, friends, or even strangers. A smile and a kind word can work wonders.

Flexibility is Key
Stay adaptable and learn to roll with the punches. Like a super-flexible yoga guru, being able to adapt to the unexpected is essential in keeping your cool during the madness.

It’s easy to feel small in a world filled with chaos and despair, but we all have the power to make a difference. Every act of kindness, every effort to better ourselves and help those around us, has a ripple effect that can create positive change in the world.



Owning the fact that I Make A Difference – whether positive or negative –  also means taking responsibility for my thoughts, attitudes, vibes, tones, and actions and the impact they have on the world.

It means being aware of the power of my words and actions, and using that power for good. It means leading by example and being a source of inspiration for others.

Owning it means 100% vulnerable accountability for it all:
my hits and my misses!

So, to all the Difference Makers reading this – I’m going to say it again – I want to encourage you to own the fact that you make a difference. Take ownership in the impact you have on the world, and use it as a driving force to do good and be the change you wish to see. 

I was at a mega wholesale store the other day during a time when I did not expect there to be very many people.  It happened to be a pay day and it was packed.  I looked up from my shopping and I had a moment of seeing people.  Just seeing them.  The expressions on their faces.  How they walked.  Lots of people with a task to do.  Mother’s busily keeping their children close by their carts. 

Worried looks on many faces.  The worries so many of us share quietly as we go about our days.

It all felt so heavy.  So I started smiling at people.  Saying “Hi,  how’s it going? Sweet child you’ve got there.”  And a funny thing happened.  I started feeling even better than I had when I walked in.

Celebrate the greatness in others not only because there is enough for everybody but because it lifts your own spirit!

Let’s all come together to create a world filled with love, compassion, and positive change. Because, together, we truly do make a difference.
