We each have influence, even if we don’t realize it.
In a bit of possibly tooting my own horn, I realized the influence I have. Someone this past week told me they did something because of what I said years ago to them. The statement was something I said in a normal conversation with them.
I don’t have millions of people hanging on my every word….at least I don’t think I do. Tim Cook said something at a commencement speech and there was an article about it. I don’t have people writing articles about me. But, I have heard on numerous occasions that people did something because of me.
I’m literally a nobody. Just a person trying to make my way in this world. Yet, people listen to what I’ve said. Sometimes it’s been received negatively, other times positively. I think because of celebrities and famous people, we downplay our own influence on others. You have an influence, more than you will know.
My nephew is setting up a streaming studio, because of what I’ve done. Just got the text from him. What’s next? Maybe he’ll start making 85,000 podcasts, like I do. The power of influence.
