Quote - Impact

"We impress people with our success, but we impact people with our failures."

~ John Maxwell

John Maxwell is an amazing speaker and his focus is teaching leadership to the business world, but he has such great advice for everyone who wants to make an impact in their lives.  I think you can learn from looking at success stories, but to learn how people made it you often have to look at the beginning of the story.  The beginning is the unknown, where mistakes happen in the greatest number and fear can take hold.  Instead of looking back at our failures and being mad maybe we can look at them in a different light.  Often time and age will start to show how something we thought was a mistake becomes exactly what we needed in the place we are right now.  We can learn the most from those mistakes and make changes so we can move forward to where we were mean to be.

I have not been on here in a long time.  I'm not sure what is going on with me.  Lately I feel like I am floating down a river without a paddle, just watching everything, not doing anything.  I don't seem to have a vision or mission so I am going to have to figure out what is going on.  Maybe read a John Maxwell book to jump start my soul again.
