You can make a difference in the lives of everyone you meet during the day. In fact, you definitely will make a difference for the people you see. More specifically, for the people who see you.
If you think about the people who make an impression on you during your days, you will see some common traits. They will be the people who connect with you. Perhaps because they look you in the eye. Perhaps because they engage you in a conversation. Perhaps because they interact with you in some other way.
But the way that they are when they communicate with you will make all the difference.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said "Who you are speaks so loudly I can't hear what you're saying." Who people are being when they connect with you in some way makes all the difference.
Each of these approaches makes a difference.
As you consider how you impact the people around you, you need only to consider how are are being as you meet them.
Smiling, using their names, encouraging them, and genuinely caring about them all increase your influence.
Complaining or looking like you've been sucking on green persimmons isn't going to connect you positively with others.
The good news is that you decide how you will be.
Will you make a positive difference? It's up to you.
