Long term influence

Do you realize how much of a difference you have made in life, and continue to make? Very likely, the answer is a resounding no.

You cannot possibly know all the consequences and ramifications of your actions in the lives of other people. Each thing you do takes on a life of its own and can affect people far removed in time and distance from the original action.

You cannot control all the consequences that eventually flow from what you do. That makes it critically important that you put as much love, authenticity and positive intention into whatever you do, while you still have influence over it.

Each moment, you are sending energy out into life. That energy gets multiplied and repeated for a very long time.

The world in which you live is filled with the still-present energy from the long-forgotten actions of everyone who has ever traveled through it. And on this very day, you can do your part to increase the amount of positive energy that settles upon the days to come.

Act as if whatever you do will influence your own life and the lives of others for a long time to come. Fill your actions with goodness, and you literally make your whole world a better place in ways you will never even know but will nonetheless benefit from.

— Ralph Marston
