Do people do what you want them to do as if you had a magic potion beaming forth from your eye? Are you someone who influences others?
INFLUENCE defined: *"The power to cause changes without directly forcing them to happen" (*Merriam Webster Online Dictionary)
Influence is your key. It connects you to your inner power and your ability to shape your desired outcomes. We're always influencing our outcomes through our intricate belief system.
The question isn't: "Can you influence others and outcomes" - it's "How are you influencing them?"
Positive Influence gets you more...more clients, more income, the raise, the promotion, more opportunities, more of your desired outcomes, more of the goodies...
Influence is a result of 'who' you are. Influence is what other people let you do.
Persuasion on the contrary, is what you 'do' to others to get them to do what you want. Growing your Influence Factor™ means growing yourself. When you decide to become the kind of person that others respond to, they will give you the opportunity to influence them.
Positive influence grows with integrity. Influence by integrity increases your magnetism. People want to be around you. People want to refer you clients, they want to say yes and invest in you, they want to include you in their circle, they want to help you get what you want.
To increase your positive influence, remove the inner conflict.
