We each have different skills and talents.  When we interact with others through our skills and talents, we leave behind an impression – whether for good or bad.  The impression we leave behind on others is our unique signature.  In 1776 John Hancock’s large and stylish signature on the American Declaration of Independence made an impression that lasted centuries.  His signature made a statement.  What is your signature?  What is your style?  What can you do to distinguish yourself from the crowd, yet still remain true to your values and character?

Try something new today that reveals your true character is will make a favorable and memorable impression on the people you interact with.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feelMaya Angelou

Emotions create strong impressions.  Your signature, your style, your approach will impact people.  If you invoke strong emotions through it, they will remember.

It is not just your written signature, but your presence, your professionalism, your dedication, and your ability to connect.  These are things that invoke emotional responses and make lasting impressions.  First impressions are visual, so to some extent, we need to make a statement with our physical appearance.  But lasting impressions are made by our inner characteristics: our passion, our diligence, our commitment, our honesty, our integrity, and our determination.  These are the characteristics that invoke strong emotion, that make lasting connections.  People remember you for what you stand for, and how well you treated them. 

Make your signature unique!  Live a life of character, and make it stand out!

What is your signature?  How do you stand out from the crowd?
