Do you have influence within you?

The 7 Laws of influence explained – How do you measure a leader’s influence? Simple. Influence. There’s all there is to it. Real leadership isn’t awarded, assigned or appointed. It is gained only through influence, it can’t be mandated. It is earned.

Here’s how you can find leaders.

You can prove that a leader exists when there are followers. This is why some people come out as leader while some can’t even influence no matter how hard they try to do so. There are several factors that affect this.

In no particular order, here are the seven laws of influence of a true leader:

1. Abilities – This is what a leader can do. What skills that they possess.
2. Intuition – This is what a leader can feel is coming.
3. Character – This is who a leader is. What he is made of.
4. Knowledge – This is what a leader knows from their past.
5. Experience – This is where they’ve been. The failures and success.
6. Relationships – This is who they know. The networks they have built.
7. Past Experiences – This is what they’ve done before.

Here’s the deal. A leader who thinks he is leading but has no following, is just walking by himself. Secondly, if a person can’t influence other people, then they are not going to follow you. You are not a leader if people won’t follow you.

This is why I think character plays a big role here. This what what makes people want to follow a leader. The answer is in the character qualities of the individual person.

Do you have what it takes to become a great leader? The type that can attract people and make things happen?

Can you find that deep within you? Can you build the biggest dreams that you have for yourself? These are the dreams that you have not shared to anybody else. Do you want to achieve your real potential?

I leave you with one question. Are people really following you? Or are you just walking by yourself?

Do you really have people following you?

For me, an effective leader is not who just directs people. A leader should also be a part of the team who works with the team. Because for me, a good leader should be the role model of the team where the followers can see that their leader is one with their whole team.

Whenever I have a project with my team, I guide them with their task and also work with them as well because I want to be a part of the work as well so that if ever problems will occur, I will be there to solve the problem with the team as well.

We already have it! We can be able to influence and inspire other people. Each of us is already an influencer of others because we have the sense of sight, power to judge & the ability to see someone’s strengths.

I believe that to live is to influence. Whenever and wherever our lives interact with others at school, at home, at work, on-line, or in our community, we have influence. We change lives because we have our own distinct personality. We affect people every single day with the words we say, the looks on our face, the actions we choose, and the decisions we make.

The communications we have in this world offer both an extraordinary and testing opportunity. They can be positive or negative. They can increase the value of the lives of others or they can remove esteem. Our chance for impact or influence can turn into a significant influencer or it can additionally solidify the norm. It can make our reality a superior spot to be or a crummier spot to persevere.

Refreshing perspective and a reminder of our daily reality – we are influencers every single minute we interact with people – every single one! The subtle influences are the most powerful, which is frightening and empowering. This is servant-leadership at its core! Leading and influencing by doing, rather than preaching.

My everyday life and actions influence those I interact with and love the most. I see this when I watch my boys interact with the world around them. It’s both incredibly empowering and very humbling.

So many times I have influenced people in my life without even realizing it. I am avid fitness person . I care about what I eat, and I exercise regularly . It is just one of my passions. I don’t tell anyone else in my life to do the same as me. If they ask me for advice, I will give it, but I never want to preach to someone else.

But I have noticed the better I look, the toner I get, the stronger I am, the more other people ask me how to get where I am. The healthier I look, the more I am asked about how to get into yoga, how to eat healthier, how to eat more naturally. I influence without even trying, just by being passionate about the subject, by changing myself, and by being a beacon of fitness to the people around me.

We definitely have more influence than we give ourselves credit for.

People can do more than they think they can. One person can change someone’s life with just one thing, for better or for the worst. Or even change the whole world if they really want to

I do not consider myself as a leader because I know that I am not really a born leader. But when I was in college, my classmates were always pushing me to be the head of the class, or to be the representative of our class to all the professors. Every time there would also be an activity, they would also push me as well to lead them. But aside from those, they don’t follow me as well.. They are just using me as a “shield” so that they would not be doing it.

But as time goes by, I just realized that I have the potential to be a leader, but I still have to work on my mindset on how to be an effective leader.
