Becoming a Person of Influence

Human being are the basis of life. Without effective communication with our fellow humans one cannot become successful.
If you want to succeed in life, you must learn how to connect with others. Connection is the key to influence with people.

To connect with people is the ability to relate with people in such a way that your ability to influence them increases with ease.
 If you want to become a person of influence, first, you have to work on yourself. There has to be something in you that you intend on influencing people with. These are your values, your skills, the amount of knowledge you've acquired, your experiences, etc.

Secondly, for you to have influence in the society, you need to be a people person.
Therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you. Matt 7 : 12


 To become a people person, you need to be approachable, confident, charismatic. You need to be someone people can look up to as a model. You need to be able to motivate people. If your goal is to become influential, you need to get rid of any self-centered attitude. Acknowledge and show interest in others.
“The single greatest people skill is a highly developed and authentic interest in the other person” -Bob Burg
