We all are influencers

   Yes, that’s right. I believe we all are influencers even though it’s not on that macro scale other people have (especially the well-known people). It happens without us being aware of this. We are influencing the people that spend lots of time around us and I believe it is important for us to be aware of this. Have you noticed that when some friend is really sad, you get a little sad too? Well, it’s a two-way street. If we are sad, we’re influencing whomever is around us (friends, spouse, kids, parents and so on) even if we like it or not.

    I believe this is a powerful thing to know because it places a huge responsibility on us. How do you want your friends to be around you? How do you want your kids to grow up? These are some questions that can bring some self-awareness in our lives. You want your friends to be happy around you? Well, do you have a positive behavior? You want your kids to grow up with the sense that they are powerful and that life is wonderful even though it is tough? Do you celebrate those wonderful things in life or do you keep a negative and sh*tty state most of the time?  Do you have the relationship you would like to have? Well, what do you do to make it like that? We usually want for the others to do something about our mood. We want to be influenced in such a way that our lives get better. I’m here to tell you that it won’t get better if you wait for things to happen to you. Why? Because whatever happens to you it won’t be enough to improve your life and this waiting habit will influence other people as well.

   I hate that scene in the movies when someone gets hurt and a brave dude or dudette comes by and yells Somebody call 911! Why the f*ck don’t you do it? It’s not like you do anything to save that hurt person. I know there are only movies, but these kind of things happen in real life as well. Like at work for example, when the boss says that someone should do a task, most of the people act as if they didn’t hear that. It’s kinda sad.

   So yeah, I believe we all are influencers and it’s in our power to decide if we have a positive influence or a negative one. What kind of influence do you have on other people?

  1. I suppose that I am that person who build others up. If somebody does not see his power inside himself, I will show that person how great he/she is. I am a very optimistic person and it’s normal that I have bad moments too, but I think it’s necessary to help others to find positive points in all their negative situtaions. For example somebody looses his job. It’s bad at first but perhaps that job wasn’t right for him, he can develope and find a better position where he can show his skills and become more successful. People are always focusing on the lost and what they had// but the best is to look forward and to embrace the things which are waiting for you. You have endless opportunities in life! By being positive you will reach a higher level. I influence people to connect with their inner voice and being more optimistic. Sometimes a hard job, but it’s so helpful to be supported.

  2. I believe everywhere we go we have the power to make a difference. For those who are lucky enough to be in my inner circle they all know they can come to me and talk to me about anything. I will be there to love and encourage them. But that extends to others as well because kindness doesn’t cost a thing. The other day I went through a drive-thru with my children in tow. I told the young girl at the window thank you for the food and told her to have a nice day. One of my children said, “But she didn’t greet you back.” I told my child that just because she didn’t have a friendly comment doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve one. I remember working fast food and she could be tired or stressed, life at home might suck or any other thing I’m unaware of. She may really need the encouragement and the kindness, and I’m not going to hold it back simply because she couldn’t return it. So in that one moment I touched many lives and I didn’t even get out the car.

    I was watching bits and pieces of The Eccentrics the other day on Netflix and it had many influential people who were making a difference just by being themselves and there was this one man Francis Firebrace on there that really impressed me. I recommend you watch if you can find the time.

    1. Such an awesome spirit. You seem to have a great understanding of people and through complexities. You give out without expecting anything in return but the laws of your generosity is in effect regardless. The returns will manifest in your children. Many blessings to you🙏🏽

      1. I learned what to do simply by growing up around people who had no idea how to be kind or generous. I know without a doubt I’m a million times happier than most because I don’t need the world to blow me kisses and give me love. I simply give it to myself. Thank you for such a lovely message.

      2. And I agree wholeheartedly bi try to do similar things just being mindful that a single Ray is sometimes what one person need and the ripple effect may not be seen by my eyes but experienced by an unimaginable number of others. Just imagine😘

  3. Oh wow!!! Wow! Wow! Well done and do I agree wholeheartedly? Yes I do! We are all influencers definitely. So why aren’t we all using it to benefit and uplift daily? I’m not sure why myself but each day I certainly give it a good effort. Our time here on this earth is numbered so we should be making those numbers count and we should be making it absolutely positive. I thank you for this great positive post and for the reminder. I am a positive and mindful influencer.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking your time to share your thoughts! Kindness doesn’t cost a thing so we should give it to others more often.

  4. Mostly for good. I also know that certain meetings & conversations go better for me when I’m in a good / charitable mood than otherwise. People are more likely to smile if they’re smiled at (& even if they don’t smile back, we feel better for our having smiled). I am generally disappointed in myself if eg I start to complain because then other people join in & it escalates & then I feel worse.
    Sometimes though we have to get to someone else’s mindset in order to build the rapport to get credibility to help them.
