Influence is Being
Have you personally witness a random act of kindness? Were you like many, including me, that was also moved by it and wanted to do the same? ...that my friend is a cause and effect of INFLUENCE! ... Influence is not always loud and obvious. Influence is in the everyday word we say, decisions we make, and the actions we take. You are Influence! If you and I are influence, doesn’t it make sense that we must show up every day as the best version of ourselves? Here are the areas that if we become open to improve and progress in will contribute to your best self:
One of my fears i still need to overcome is skydiving. The only reason I’m ok to do it is that i know that the parachute is there for me to safely land. Just like our minds, it is only ready to receive when it is open. Be open to ask when you don’t know. Be open to observing others to get to know them. Be encouraged to make mistakes and be open to learning from them.
“Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” Sometimes there’s a voice in our head that says “You are not the expert! You make mistakes!” and it's this voice that prevents us from reaching out to offer our solutions. What if we start every relationship with an open heart? Being able to understand and empathize with their situation. Would it be worth it to care first to influence someone’s life to be better? Yes, it is!
Open to Greatness
Before the word “branding” became popular in the marketing space, being “YOU” was your brand. Oprah explained it well that your “Excellence” is your brand. It is very difficult to argue with someone's work that is the utmost quality. Focusing on the little details and going above and beyond will go a long way! People will see you.
You matter! You are influencing people either positively or negatively. May you choose wisely my friend.
