When you work hard to be somebody’s HERO today, you bring out the HERO in them for somebody tomorrow!
If you were surrounded by those you’ve directly had an influence on, what does that picture look like? Do you celebrate what you see or panic and wonder what went wrong?
We reproduce who we are. Those we influence become what we’ve displayed to them through our example. So, what does that look like? How could you have made the outcome even better? Our successes in life are found in our daily agenda. Those we influence remind us how we live and what we truly value. If you want to know how you’re influence is going, just take a look at those you influence.
To be honest, how we influence others is a direct result of those who have influenced us. So, if we want to better our influence on others we need to ask a question – who is on my team of influencers that will help me in influencing those closest to me in the best possible way? The answer is important because those we influence will look for similar influences to continue their own growth as they establish influence on those around them.
The true measure of a person isn’t found in what he/she has become on their own, rather it is found in who was allowed to influence, shape and mold them into the person they have become.
Keep in mind that we can’t give what we don’t have, but we can give all we do have and recruit from a hand-selected team of influencers who have fine-tuned an area of life we would like reproduced in our sphere of influence. It is true that we reproduce who we are and what we are exposed to.
In “Becoming A Person Of Influence”, John Maxwell gives us the criteria for a team of influencers. “An influencer means…
Be somebody’s HERO and create your team of influencers that you want to help you influence those in your sphere of influence.
The answers are important to those you will influence.
