"The Authentic Soul Of Powerful Personal Influence"

Personal influence never stops - for better or for worse. We influence others, and they influence us, in some cases even beyond death. Memories of a deceased parent, teacher, preacher, or mentor continue to dwell with us; in fact, their influence may actually increase with time.
Influence can be subtle. Two people might do same thing or say same words and yet exert very different influences. Don't be blinded by outward appearances. Your inner impressions are a more accurate gauge of genuineness.
Suppose your own character is somewhat less attractive than you'd like. Maybe you're afflicted by such a bad temper that you constantly feel obliged to overcompensate. The dilemma then arises: you can either continue to go through this charade your whole life; or you can decide to be true to yourself.
If you manufacture a mask of friendship to conceal your irritability, you may affect a cheesy grin, a smoothness of tone, a blandness of vocabulary, a careful control of body language - all ruses to transform your overt hostility into covert hostility! Cool on outside; raging hot within! What a wearying way to spend day!
