You can have an impact

Hey everyone, welcome my name’s Victoria Obermaier and I am a career confidence coach and I am passionate about helping people to be the best that they can be.  We are in a month of talking about positive thinking.  Last week we talked about – I just had to remind myself what we talked about last week – we talked about asking for help last week and if you want to catch that then you can have a look on my channel, on my YouTube channel and catch up on that one and the week before that we talked about being aware of negativity and surrounding yourself with positivity.  So again if you want to have a look at that one then you can watch that one too.


So, today we are talking about impact.  And we’re talking about the fact and this is fairly straight forward one actually, we are thinking about the fact that you can have an impact on the world.  Now, I believe and absolutely know that we are all here for a purpose that we are all unique that there is something special about each and every one of us.  It doesn’t matter what we’ve done, what we’ve not done, what situation we’re in, what our past has been like.  We are all here for a reason and we all have something to offer the world.  So this is just really a Vlog of encouragement and a reminder that if you’re feeling that you have nothing to offer that there is no impact that you can have, that there’s nothing you can do that will make a difference, that’s wrong.  And that’s your little voice inside your head, telling you that, but that’s not the truth.  The truth is that you have something unique to offer to the world.  Do not hide your light under a bushel, do not hide your talent away, do not hide away something that you have to offer because that little voice inside your head is telling you that you’ve got nothing to bring to the table because that is just not true.


There is something that you can do that will have an impact in the world today right now and it doesn’t have to be, when I say, when I say you can have an impact on the world, I’m not talking about standing on a big stage having a massive audience, reaching millions, although you might be and that’s fantastic if that’s what you want.  I’m talking about the small things that have an impact and then have that ripple effect.  I’m talking about the small things like when you’re standing in a queue in the supermarket and there’s an elderly person in front of you having a two minute chat with them, because that might be the only person they talk to that day and the person who’s serving them.  I’m talking about asking somebody out for coffee who you know is having a hard time.  I’m talking about sending a simple text message to say thinking of you, hoping everything is okay.  So I’m not talking about, I’m not talking about massive things, I’m talking about small things that have a massive impact.  So if you think about, I mean I’ve heard so many stories and read so many things about people reaching out to somebody, they haven’t known their circumstances, they’ve just been kind, they’ve just shown them an act of kindness and that person, so they might have spoken to them that day, given them 5 minutes of their time, and that person has come back to them and said I was thinking about ending my life today and you stopped me from doing it because you spoke to me.  You don’t know and that’s a massive impact, you don’t know sometimes the impact that you will have on people, but it’s about showing up.  It’s about giving what you have to offer and that might be at the moment quite small because of where you are, but that’s fine, just offer it anyway.  Okay, so that’s quite a short one today, but I think that’s probably enough.


So, just remember that you have something to offer, it doesn’t matter how big or how small, you don’t know the impact of what you’ve got to give and have, it can be massive and you might never know.  You might never know, you just need to trust that the world needs that little bit of what you’ve got to offer okay?
