The greatest ability God imputed into mankind is the ability to create change. The capacities of man are immeasurable: the talents inherent in us cannot be estimated. It was Thomas Edison who said if we did all we were capable of doing we’d literally astonish ourselves. Impact speaks of a forceful collision of a thing with another.
Change is a Product of Impact, one thing colliding with another. In fact contradictions are the major precursors of change. Karl Marx Spoke about Revolutions being the locomotive of History which is invariably responsible for the epochal changes in human antiquity. Impact; as I have come to discover simply means MEETING NEEDS. We have arrived at a juncture where we must not only see the needs and talk about them but see and do something about them. However, you must realize that the extent to which your life makes an impact is directly proportional to the content of your person. Can you imagine the impact of a collision of a caterpillar and a Toyota Camry? Or can you compare the productivity of a Mikano generator and a small tiger generator? The difference between these two examples is their individual capacities, and your Capacity is what determines your Productivity.
Albert Oduwole once said YOU CANNOT BE LOADED AND NOT NEEDED. Many potential change makers are seated making various analyses rather than standing up for change. Despite the efficacy of the Word of God it still needed to become Flesh (reality, something tangible). I believe the needs of humanity can be met by humanity; it was Mahatma Gandhi who said that we have enough for man’s needs but not enough for man’s greed. If each one can reach one then each one can meet a need. There’s that little oil in your house, that five loaves and two fishes in your basket, that book unpublished, that goal unachieved: GET UP and make USE of it. Someone needs the colt that you’ve tied up inside of you; loose that colt and let it ride free to meet the needs for whom it had been created.
Martin Luther King Jr. made his mark, Kenneth E. Hagin, Thomas Edison, Isaac Newton, all these men made their mark you also can.
Do not sit around: Evil only prevails when good men sit and do nothing. There’s a need around you which God has designed for you to meet. Get out of your comfort zone, move to the streets, schools, bridges, orphanages, share love with them. A smile, a gift, a handshake; or just speaking a word might birth the change we long to see in the world. At least you do not need a million dollars to make someone smile; you do not need to be a Shakespeare to write a book. Get about doing what you want to do. Remember Jesus went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed of the devil for God was with him.
I tell you today, we have to step into the shoes of Jesus Christ, step into the shoes of those who have gone ahead of us and thread the paths of Greatness but you must know
Mountains and Hills are to Climb
Valleys are to descend to…………
Stand up for peace; make a statement with your Life. It is high time you made your mark. Nothing is impossible to him who believes. Humanity would remain in distress if you do not get up and take your stand. The Future is YOU.
Your Destiny is only time away. Your Preparation is Fundamental. Impact is your Mandate.
I Believe in You
I Believe in Youth
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

You seem very passionate about going forth and making a change. I would ask, have you ever considered why God would ask us to be still (i.e. Psalms 46:10)? Often to be effective in going forward and / or making changes, we must first put down our passions so He can show us His. If we do not start our day with Him, we are not likely to finish it well. Here is an article I wrote that you may contrast with: http://managedsurrender.com/spilling-scripture/clearer-vision/originalist/
