How Do You Become An Influential Person?
For starters, you can begin by reading biographies about influential people.
As you are reading about them, you would need to search and identify what skills sprung out of them that eventually led to the conquering of the challenges they faced.
The challenges that you might be facing now, which might even be of a lesser intensity.
And then consistently experimenting with those skills by you using them in your life to find out, first hand, how effective they are for you.
Because at times life, I'm sure you have noticed, is a series of challenges that are not designed to keep you down, but to build you up.
And life will always teach you the same lessons until you have the courage to use the skills at your disposal in solving your challenges.
That is, until your next challenge arrives.
And so the wheel turns.
You can endure this seasonal process with trepidation or joy.
Sometimes, without the implementation of skill, all you will endure is pain in your life.
Hopefully it will get you feeling so much pain that it will motivate you to now start asking new questions, and opening up to new skills in solving your old problems.
That is why it is so important to associate with those that have mastered and achieved the level of success and skill you want to implement in the betterment of your life also.
So include reading at least one chapter or an inspirational article a day of a skill or principle that you can use, immediately, in your life.
So you can begin to improve your circumstances, one day at a time, one idea at a time, one action at a time, just like the leader and visionary guru Steve Jobs, and others like him, did.
