THE UNIQUE "TOUCH OF YOU!" (Being A Positive Influence In Your World) ŠLee Wise 2002
I was in front of computer at home.
Nothing new for me!
I heard a few voices and dog barking. That small dog "yap yap" that triggers not nice thoughts in my mind. I wont' go into that :(
SOME FOLKS I KNEW
At any rate, I knew three folks that had just stopped in to say "Hi!"
Why did I know them?
Well, one was my son-in-law: I'd better know him! Beyond son-in-law factor was something else --
I have taught each one of them at one level or another about what they were doing: visiting people!
THE JOY OF INFLUENCE
Sitting here at my computer and reflecting about me being a positive influence in their lives brings me great joy!
It is joy of being a positive, personal influence in life of another person.
SOMETHING YOU CAN'T BUY
You don't purchase power of *personal* influence. Note word I used: "Personal."
I will say it again: you don't purchase power of personal influence.
You earn it.
Step by step, action by action, and word by word ... it is earned.
You "create" a hearing by consistently giving people "good things" you possess.
And what are those good things?
Your sincerity, time, and wisdom. I have found, however, that if I am going to give people these "good things" I must have possess something myself.
I must be determined. I must value being a positive influence in my world. And, I must *feel* that value "deep enough" inside of me to keep me in game!
