How well do you crave to be a person of influence? I know the obvious answer will be “so much!”. We all have that urge to be influential and be people how high standards such that we can get things done and get things working for us.
What then is influence? Most of us think it is until we get so wealthy that’s when we can be called someone who is influential or regarded as someone who everyone wants to be associated with. To have influence, therefore, isn’t till you attain that height of being so wealthy but it is just to be someone who can be respected and get things going.
There are levels of influence and it is not going to be attained just in a day, you have to keep doing things that are relevant and be a constant solution provider regardless of your current financial or social status.
You obviously want to get noticed someday and be applauded but the truth is are your really prepared for it? Are you building people’s trust or you’re just leaving life like it doesn’t really matter to you.
You must constantly live your life with the mindset that you want to be a person of great influence wherever you are and this must definitely be a positive thought. Don’t think of influence as a negative tool to maneuver or deceive people to get want you so desire as that might not last for a long period.
You however have a major thing to do and that is work on yourself in all areas, be helpful to others and build the right connections this is what influence should majorly be about.
