Word Up: Influence

Welcome to the “Word Up” – inspiration and insights on everyday words; exploring the power and meaning behind them.

When words are kind and true, they can change our world” ~ Buddha

Influence >

The capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something, or the effect itself

It’s a word used a lot and not always fully understood.  The idea of having an effect, of being part of the change of someone or something but not necessarily by direct methods.

So when you think of ‘influence’ let me ask you:

  •    What effect are you trying to have on someone or something?
  •    How successfully is that working for you?
  •    If you knew just how influential you really are – what would you do?
Or, in other words:

“Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.”

~ Napoleon Hill
