People aren’t born influential, they choose to be in the actions they take and the habits they make. Developing these habits over time can lead to better options in life. Whether you add one or all of them to your daily routine they should add a new perspective on how you can be as influential as those you see around you.
1.) Listen to those around you
You might be wondering how listening to others would make YOU more influential? Turns out if you listen to what people have to say that they’ll do the same for you. What you have to say is just as important as what everyone else does. So take a moment out of your day and listen to what those around you are saying.
2.) Make a plan, set goals
You can’t get to where you’re going without a map so how can you reach your goals without a plan? Yearly goals are difficult to achieve when you run out of steam before the first month. Break it down. Set 30/60/90 day milestones to help you get to your final goal. Whether you complete every goal you had in mind, at the end of the day it is a healthy habit to have. You’ll find yourself motivated with each milestone you reach and you’ll be able to see how close you are to the end and how much you’ve achieved.
3.) Make yourself heard
You don’t have to take every moment to shout about the things you believe are important but don’t be afraid to go against the grain and stand out. Being heard isn’t just about what you say with your words but what you say with your movements. Actions speak louder than words, so get out there and make yourself physically active. Make the decision to be heard with what you do and how you do it.
4.) Don’t be afraid to take risks
Influential people didn’t become that way by playing it safe and staying quiet. Don’t keep yourself from being the best version of yourself that you know you can be. You aren’t competing with everyone else, your biggest competition is yourself. So at the end of the day who do you want to win? Choose the you that believes they can achieve anything not the you who only wants to meet the status quo.
5.) Look and feel confident
Make a conscious effort to start your day with confidence. You may not always decide how you feel but you can decide what you show the world. By looking confident in turn you will feel confident. Whether that starts with good habits, positive affirmations, or even how you dress it all leads to one thing. Put on a nice outfit and your favorite pair of sunglasses that allow people to see your inner confidence shine on the outside.
