Jesus empowers my business to create exponential impact.
“And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.”
- Acts 3:4-7 (New King James Version)
I recently looked in to purchasing a 1:1 session with my favorite coach to help me fine-tune my new signature offer and I had to pause for the cause after reading through the requirements for working with her. Why? Because in those requirements she says that to become a client, you have to have proven, transformational results for someone you’ve helped. In other words, you need receipts of how you’ve tangibly impacted someone else’s life with whatever it is that you do. Now, because my offer is new, I ain’t got no results for it yet fam 🤷🏾♀️. But I LOVE how even in her requirements she was coaching me already because I truly felt compelled to make sure that whatever I’m doing and creating for my people is built with impact in mind.
Thanks to her, I’ve made the shift from having a service-based mindset, to an impact-based mindset.
That means, instead of just focusing on providing a service to my customers, I’m now focused -- and honestly a little obsessed (in a good way of course) -- with creating real change in their lives. If working with me didn’t make a huge difference in your life that you can rave about effortlessly, I’m not doing something right.
So since then, I’ve been kind of an impact junkie in my mind, so it makes sense that while having a little fellowship with Jesus this morning over communion, I saw the impact He made in a new light. As I was meditating on what His sacrifice did for me, it hit me that He’s made the greatest impact ever to be made. Millions of lives have been saved, physical bodies healed, oppressed minds set free, and the list goes on.
In short, Jesus got all the receipts.
And the miracle that happened in this week’s scripture stuck with me because it’s truly an example of the exponential nature of impact Jesus has. Because He died and rose again with all power, then gave that same power to His disciples, they were able to go and impact other people, and then those people impacted others and the cycle continues to this day. How amazing is that!?! And guess what?
Your business has the power to create exponential results in people’s lives too, just like Jesus’ work did.
That’s why you can’t get lost in the cycle of only providing products or services for years and never seeking or realizing your true impact (or worse, never having any real impact at all 😳). If you’ve been stuck in the product/service-focused mindset thus far, I pray this message shifts your thinking. Be about that impact boss!
This week, I encourage you to take inventory. How exactly did your customers’ lives change as a result of working with you or using your product? What problem did it solve in their lives? If you can’t pinpoint it, or they have a hard time telling you, it’s time to make some adjustments.
