Consciously or subconsciously, we are constantly influencing throughout our daily lives. We influence our toddlers to eat their broccoli and we influence our work colleagues to work towards a set team objective or more productive relationships.
Most importantly, we influence ourselves. The choice is all yours whether you use your power of influence in a positive or negative way.
Think about it. Most of us have goals and dreams of the things we want to achieve – this month, this year, or a big picture objective. You can tell yourself (influence yourself) that achieving your dream career is not possible, or that losing those 5kg can wait a while – you can still (barely) squeeze into your favourite LBD.
On the other hand, if you use your ‘self influence’ to start small, proving your ability to yourself in a thousand tiny ways, your confidence and growth mindset will naturally follow from there.
