Lines of Impact 002

This is Part 2 of the Lines of Impact Series.

If you haven’t, you need to read Lines of Impact 001 to understand what I mean by them, what they mean to me and what they could mean to you. You can still choose your favourite two from the list. Here’s the deal: I will write nine of mine each part of the series and select one from a different person to complete the set. If you want me to consider yours, then share your favourite line of impact in the comment box.

Oh by the way, #8 received the vote in Part 1:

You don’t need a degree to achieve success in life. But you need vision, discipline, focus and commitment.

 Here’s my next set of lines of impact:
  1. Pain is not meaningless. There’s purpose in pain.
  2. God is beyond impressive. 
  3. It’s an awesome feeling (and reality) to know that we are imperfect men and women in the hands of a perfect God.
  4. Your life is not measured by the amount of ‘stuff’ you acquire, but by the lives your life has given meaning through the meaning God has given you. 
  5. Risk takers make things happen. Others watch everything happen and applaud. 
  6. Focus on your assignment; don’t till another man’s vineyard when you’re called to work yours. There’s no reward for it.
  7. You cannot afford the risk of not taking any risk. 
  8. It’s not enough to achieve your dreams; give others a platform for theirs. 
  9. Out of the broken pieces of our lives, God creates a masterpiece. 
  10. How do leaders emerge? They take responsibility for a cause greater than themselves and succeed against all odds (Gori Olusina Daniel)

Question & Exercise: 

  • Which two are your favourite lines of impact on the list above.
  • Go on, share one of your here in the comment box. I will select one for Part 3.

    We are not to remake ourselves but to make absolute best of what God already made – Robert Browning

    1. Hello Opeyemi,

      Thanks for sharing your line of impact. Much appreciated. Watch this space.

    “A state of mind that sees God in everything is evidence of growth in grace and a thankful heart.” -Charles Finney

    1. Joy, how true!

      Although I would have made the statement in two halves: one on evidence of growth in grace and another on thankfulness. But it doesn’t matter, Charles already said it all on one 🙂


  3. yes #life inspire

    1. Haha, you bet it does. You’ve inspired me this morning. Care to share the post on Facebook? You’re already a strong contender!

      1. Yayyyy, aww, thanks 🙂

        1. on a straight-face note, just thought i’d share that, its like a serious credo that i put together to keep me grounded through life. when i saw your post i decided to share cause it related well with the topic..

          I get deep like that sometimes lol {had to add that, why cant i be 100% serious at least 70% of the time}lol

          1. Well said. I do appreciate the ‘straight face’ input 🙂

  4. my favourite two are #8 and #10.
    Mine is:

    “Humbled: unique breathing dust that I am. From dust I came, to dust I shall return, but before I leave God in me, impact I will make. God save my soul”.

  5. “Humbled: unique breathing dust that I am. From dust I came, to dust I shall return, but before i leave God in me, impact I will make. God save my soul. 😀

    1. Who authored that? You? Awesome!!! Definitely a life-changing line of impact. Wow!

      1. I’m not used to blogs, I keep posting new ones when there is a reply arrow, lol and you cant delete for correction.

        1. You’ll learn. It’s an experience.

  6. enoba ogbole

    I love comment no 6. “Don’t till another’s land, focus on yours”
    True words for me. What I get is the fact that everyone’s race track is different. Run your own race. Focus on the goals and assignment God has given you. When you achieve, there is a reward. But there is no reward when you fail at yours and succeed at another man’s.

    1. Thanks Enoba. Do you have any line of impact to contribute?
