I’ve shared with you my reader my voice – Love. How well do I practice what I preach? I may think about all this. I may write about all this. But let me be perfectly honest and tell you that I struggle with consistently applying my voice.
You do have a unique voice – an articulation from your core that gives you expression in all you do. It’s there to be identified, uncovered, and freed. But be warned – you have an accountability to use it – and when used, yet another level of accountability is created.
Others do not have to know our voice to experience the impact of its application. Your first level of accountability is created by your successful recovery and connection to your voice. This connection becomes a commitment to use your voice.
It’s the act of following through on your commitment that creates the second level of accountability … impact. How might one take accountability for impact?
Let us not confuse impact with outcomes. Outcomes are generally thought of as tangible results. Impact is formed one person at a time and occurs because of our individual commitment to intentional behaviors driven by our voice. This is how you take personal accountability for impact – by being conscious of your voice in all decisions and applying voice in all corresponding actions.
This is how another person hears your voice … and this is how another feels the impact of your voice.
