Peter Atherton | How to Create a Massive Impact

How to be successful at work and in your ministry


“I left to pursue a higher calling”Pete Atherton

My phone rang one day and it was Peter Atherton.  He has been a long time listener to the podcst and wanted to call me on his last day of employment.  He called to let me know that the stories and interviews from Eternal Leadership were a big part of his jumping into his calling and passion and he had started a new company!

Peter really resonated with this one phrase – Smoldering Discontent.  This led him to follow his passions, gifts and talents down a new path! Peter is an accomplished engineer and was owner of a large and successful engineering firm and he has decided to sell his ownership to that firm to focus on serving communities. He has come to realize that what has attracted him to engage heavily in his career at 25 is not enough to fulfill and retain him at 45.

“God was the one who was there at that moment.”Pete Atherton

The road forward is not always straight path.  At the time Peter was preparing to leave the company he was working with, a huge legal issue came up that could have damaged his reputation and cost him his wealth and job. Little did he know that this was going to be a real transformation moment for him. He asked God for help and months after, the case was over and he was restored. This experience had allowed him to feel excited at what God would allow in his life.

“If you create the conditions – allow people to be successful at work to grow, to develop and to make a real impact in their communities and for others, it’s a win-win-win…”Pete Atherton

Peter shares that people go through different seasons in their lives and during that season when they want to make a difference, it’s that time that most are leaving their job and businesses are losing their people. This is where businesses can help their employees by creating an environment that allows for a corporate social impact where its employees can be successful at work and in their communities.

“Success will just never fully satisfy.”Pete Atherton
“Now we want to be able to work in something that gives us purpose.”Pete Atherton
