Summary of Podcast:
You Influence Others
(00:36) Have you ever stopped to consider how the connections that you have with people have influenced your life?
(1:39) I’m certain that we all realize the value of choosing like-minded people to surround ourselves by, but do you actually take action and ‘choose?’
(4:29) I’m so glad I am experiencing this with you right now because when I asked myself these questions, it caused me to realize that there are people in my life right now that are there for a reason. They are serving a purpose!
(6:34) As you may know, I have since moved on from that career, but as I look back, I am wow’d by the people that I ended up being introduced to during those years!
(7:19) That transition of moving away, was really hard—but through it I learned some valuable lessons that may resonate with you. One is that it’s important that we are open to forming new relationships (and without qualifiers like age or what they do for a living, or how or where we connect with them).
(9:10) And finally, the distance caused me to do some gardening within my relationships—some tilling, weeding and some replanting.
(11:36) Do not take on mental anguish when allowing relationships to transition in your life. You are not losing a relationship, in fact you are taking all the amazing influence it had with you.
(13:15) I’m going to share with you 10 intentional practices that you can use to bring positive influence and change into the lives of others. I will provide a FREE DOWNLOAD of these methods in the Thrive Blog or you can copy and paste this URL that takes you into the Thrive Blog to retrieve it. http://beyouandthrive.com/influence-others-free-download/
(20:22) The act of giving to another is also a gift to ourselves. When we give, we will receive. This is not a selfish act, but is the catalyst to developing unshakable human bonds that influence one another.
