The Impact Equation

By Ben Redmond August 3, 2021

Having impact in the world will most likely require you to add something to your equation...and it won't be what you want.

A dream PLUS some discipline that pushes and stretches you

 

Some passion PLUS some hard work that no one will acknowledge

 

Some celebration PLUS some failure that you didn't see coming

 

Some promises PLUS some character to back them up

 

Some risk-taking PLUS some patience when things take longer than expected

 

People love to talk about having impact and making a difference.  It's in social media posts everywhere. However, impact rarely begins with the dream, the passion, the celebration, the promise or the risk-taking.  Impact begins with discipline, hard work, failure, character, and patience.  

 

It begins when your desire to change the world trumps your need to be recognized for that desire.

 

So start on the second half of the equation...and know that the first half will take care of itself.
