Today’s inspiration is from a book that has had a big impact on me, SILENT IMPACT by Joe Schmit. This book is full of life lessons and quotes that I have been sharing with you over the past few weeks.
“We make the biggest impressions
when we are not trying to be impressive.”
Joe Schmit, author, keynote speaker, and broadcaster
Joe shared this quote after telling the story of Joe Mauer, Minnesota Twins MVP. Mauer spent his life making an impact on the lives of many without realizing it. He did this with one small gesture when he was in high school, long before he became famous. That one act had a ripple effect that Mauer would have never imagined.
We may never know the impressions we have on others. Your kind word, deed, or smile just may have a ripple effect that could last a lifetime.
