“The Impact Trainings have been a blessing and a miracle in my life. I can see the differences in my life starting to show up even before I knew what impact was through the relationship I had and have with my angel. She absolutely lives Impact in her life, and it was very obvious that there was something different about her from the time I first got to know her. But because she had the insight to recognize the value I could find in Impact, and then the courage to show me and the enthusiasm to inspire me I found myself ready to take it on.
Through the assistance of her example I went into my first day of Quest completely open to any possibilities and full of energy to take on every moment. Almost immediately I found myself delving into parts of my own spirit and soul that I had kept covered for years. What amazes me still is that even though I had been told over and over again by insightful people in my life that they knew I was covering up the greatness in me, I wrote it off as insignificant because I thought I “knew” who I was.
Quest showed me where to look for the parts of me that I had been hiding for so long and the joy I experienced as I tapped into that again was more powerful than I knew I could feel. What I learned though is that had it not been for the pain I had experienced throughout my life, I would not have been able to know that joy. Because of that realization I got to be grateful for the hard things that I had resented for so long.
Summit is where I really got in touch with how perfect the universe balances everything and how much I had done to throw that balance off in my own life. Through my choices I had allowed myself to live life from one point of existence when I really have a huge selection of ways that I can approach life. I learned the value of stretching myself out of the comfortable space in which I had learned to live to create new ways of taking on life. I’ve found so much more value in every day life than what I allowed myself to see before because now I can look at life from a world of new angles and through a world of different eyes. Summit is also where I got to remind myself of who I really am, where I really come from, and who I am created to be. I know now that I am a being of light and perfection.
Lift-Off has been a wonderful teacher for me. Through Lift-Off I’ve learned out to recognize from moment to moment when I am living life from my head, but more importantly I know how to create a shift from that space to a space where I live from my heart. The ropes course, at every single event, gave me that opportunity, and I was excited to see it and take hold of it. I’ve learned how to communicate my feelings with relationships around me, and I’ve learned how to love, honor, and respect myself and the relationships around me.
Finally, the part of impact that has meant the most to me comes from Quest again. I became aware of the intricacies of choice. I became aware that even though there are not accidents in life, there always has been agency to make choices. And I learned that those choices give me the option to either create inspiration or to be effected by circumstance. Impact truly has shown me the path upon which I get to LIVE.”
