The Impact Code: How to Use Your Words, Actions, and Attitude to Impact Others by Dr. Jillian Murphy, is a book that can truly change your life as it helps you make a positive impact on the people around you and yourself  by harnessing the power of words, actions, and attitudes.

The acronym IMPACT stands for:

I – Intention M – Mindset P – Purpose A – Action C – Connection T – Thankfulness

Each letter in the acronym represents a key element that can help us make positive changes in our lives on a daily basis.

I – Intention: Setting clear intentions is an important first step in achieving any goal. When we have a clear intention, we can focus our energy and efforts towards achieving it. Take some time each day to set intentions for the day or for specific tasks you want to accomplish.

M – Mindset: Our mindset plays a crucial role in our ability to achieve our goals. A positive and growth-oriented mindset can help us overcome challenges and obstacles. Cultivate a mindset that focuses on growth, learning, and positivity.

P – Purpose: Having a sense of purpose gives us direction and motivation. Knowing our purpose can help us make decisions and prioritize our time and energy. Take some time to reflect on your values and what’s important to you, and set goals that align with your purpose.

A – Action: Taking action is key to achieving our goals and making positive changes in our lives. Break down big goals into smaller, manageable steps and take action every day towards achieving them.

C – Connection: Building connections with others can help us stay motivated and supported. Reach out to friends, family, or colleagues for support or to offer support to them. Connect with like-minded people who share your values and goals.

T – Thankfulness: Practicing gratitude and thankfulness can help us maintain a positive outlook and appreciate the good things in our lives. Take some time each day to reflect on what you’re grateful for and express gratitude to others.

By applying the elements of IMPACT in our daily lives, we can make positive changes and achieve our goals. It starts with setting clear intentions, cultivating a positive mindset, knowing our purpose, taking action, building connections, and expressing gratitude.
