Influence Your Life


Influence your life before you influence someone else. Seriously! What you consume for your personal development will be who you become in 5 years. So many people don’t even educate themselves with personal development, and typically you see them with a poor mindset. Be careful about what you pour into your soul because it will define who you are and once it does, it will be a difficult ride to change.

What Do You Listen To

This is probably one of the biggest keys to influencing your life. What you listen to plays a big factor in your language, behavior, and lifestyle. So many people in this world will listen to music that is not a good influence. For example, R&B music used to be one of my favorite genres to listen to daily, but the more I listened to it, the more I was in a sad state of mind.

Now here is a twist; when you change your audio to audiobooks on personal development, your mind will begin to reprogram itself because it is learning things that will benefit your business and life. I remember the 1st time I listened to Les Brown. I became hooked and decided to throw the popular music away and focus on personal development. The more I listened to personal development; the more my mindset became abundant. Do you see the difference in what you listen to daily? It’s a huge shift, and it will make an impact on your behavior, language, and habits.

What Do You Watch Daily

Same as music, this is another big key to influencing your life. If you’re watching Friends all the time at late nights, ask yourself this question, “What am I learning from this show that will benefit my life and business?” The same thing with Youtube videos, what are you choosing to watch that will benefit your life and business? Videos I like to watch are motivational videos, tips to scaling my business, and communication videos. It’s amazing how much access we have when it comes to improving our education & business.

What you watch, you will become and who you will become will say so much about your influence. Everything that you watch will determine the kind of Influence you will have, and it will alter your lifestyle. It’s crazy how life works, but our brain is like a computer. We digest and store it.

You have a choice on how you want to influence people. But, influence people to do good just like you because when you leave this earth, you will be remembered on what you chose to influence your life with from the beginning.

So how will you influence your life to greatness?
