How influential are you, asks this article.
Your degree of influence boils down to how open others are towards you. How much can you change this? Is it how well you know them and their interests? Your sincerity and motive in relating to them?
At the end of the day, when you leave an environment, what's the response you get?
I suppose it takes a deep but simple shift in values and even self-image for this ability to kick in.
Thoughts of the day: Don't underestimate your ability to influence. Put the interests of others first.
Yes it's easy to pen and mouth these, but I think it takes a true servant to live this.
