I am not physically fit.
In fact I have more fat mass then muscle mass. In search of a solution I turned to google and searched the word “Diets”, google returned 19,500, 000 pages. Seems like that is more then enough info for me to find what I was looking for. In fact I was saturated by information, even overwhelmed. As I printed off my new diet plan I couldn’t help but wonder if it was going to be beneficial.
“If we are not alert, the info age may stunt our growth and create a permanent puberty of the mind.”
With so much information out there, where do you begin?
Now maybe you are not searching for diets or how to have 10,000 followers on twitter, but you might be looking for one thing, for one thing that you can do to impact others. Today, I would like to share with you one thing that I find very important for you as a leader to understand, influence.
Your influence reaches out to many. People are watching and learning from you. This could be a very scary thought or one that gives you great energy and passion. No matter how you view this, you are influencing others.
I have several conversations with people about mentoring regularly. One thing they often tell me is that they are searching for a mentor. I find this challenging and difficult. Instead of being pursued, a generation is looking to be influenced and shaped. I want to call you to be the influencers that are leading out mentoring relationship. A relationship that shares life together and learns from conversation, life experience, and the grace of God. Today, I would like to encourage you to be specific with your influencing, to go out of your way to notice, and to be one that calls others to lead.
How can you be an influencer?
