Dear Nikken Friend,
One of my favorite words is Influencer. I did a YouTube video about this. Whatever you read, listen to, or look at has an effect on you, and sociologists tell us that even the shiest introvert will influence 10,000 people over the course of his or her lifetime. Our lives shape the people around us in profound ways. Whether we intend to or not, we affect others through our influence. Do read the full article on Intentional Influence.
When someone does something, there is a ripple effect!
A responsibility that we cannot evade in life is the power of personal influence. The silent, subtle radiation of your personality, the effect of even little words and acts, the trifles that are often never considered, is tremendous. Every moment of life we are changing, to a degree, the life of the whole world. Everyone has an atmosphere, which is affecting every other person. So silent and unconsciously is this influence working, that we may forget that it exists…
-William George Jordan, The Majesty of Calmness
If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet, how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.
-The World According to Mr. Rogers
We find it almost impossible to resist people who raise their energy when we come into the room, who obviously want to connect with us. Passion is at the heart of erotic love and it is also the key to attracting and maintaining friendships….
The universe bends to those who are convinced that they are in the right place doing the right thing, and when average people become zealous about the task before them, they are no longer average.
-Alan Loy McGinnis
When a respected individual attempts a vital behavior and succeeds, this one act alone can go further in motivating others to change than almost any other source of influence.
He who influences the thought of his times influences the times that follow.
You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life!
Every time you smile at someone, it is an act of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.
There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, simple and useful life.
-Booker T. Washington
Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long after they have departed.
