If we never had any agenda at all, we wouldn’t want to be more influential. But we do have agendas. Obviously we need to learn the art of influence mastery. Influence is the ability to change our own behavior or the behavior of others. It is the power to affect the thinking and actions. Influence mastery is the art and science of changing hearts, minds, and behavior to produce meaningful and sustainable results.
Influence masters have the ability to proactively shift the thinking, actions, and even emotional states of other people. Influential people have a picture in their mind of how they want others to respond to them, and a high percentage of time, they are able to make that picture become real.
Those who truly understand the power of influence, use it to inspire others. There is no greater power than the power to influence others. This ability has a profound impact on almost every aspect of your life. Imagine having the ability to get others to say “yes” to you in any situation. The possibilities are endless. First and foremost, we believe people can change. When we make a mistake we need to admit it and then not run from it, but stay and work to fix the mistake. And though no one can undo the past, we can balance the scales by doing good deeds and earning back our own self-respect, decency, and a legitimate place in mainstream society. We believe that people can learn to live drug free lives with purpose and integrity. Whether you’re a CEO, a parent, or merely a person who wants to make a difference, you probably wish you had more influence with the people in your life. But most of us stop trying to make change happen because we believe it is too difficult, if not impossible. We develop complicated coping strategies when we should be learning the tools and techniques of the world’s most influential people.
If you are really a master influencer, you can help people to see and do what is in their best interest. If you want to become one, you would need to be assertive, emotionally intelligent, scientific and knowledgeable about the process of change master influencers have been using during last 50 years. Moreover, you would need to leave superstitions, ill founded beliefs and phobias behind.
