How To Influence People
Do you wonder How To Influence People? This is definitely something that is essential in building any kind of movement that involves others. I know people can attach a negative connotation to the idea of influencing others so i want to make it clear. We will not be leaning towards the negative aspect of this topic during this post.
If we’re talking how to be influential we are essentially trying to put an ocean in a cup. In the sense that there is so much we will not be able to cover here, however what we do cover we will go in depth on. I’d like to start by inviting you to watch this video below. Make sure to subscribe!
How To Influence People
Are you believable? I’m sure you’re very aware of how many ‘influencers’ exist in our networks. It’s no surprise that some people are more influential than others when we look at their progress and their track records. Believability doesn’t just come down to being able to talk a good game and be convincing. We need to see the action. We need to see where this knowledge and game is coming from. What have you built? Who do you work with? How many people credit you for changing their lives already? Results speak. If you can provide evidence of your power to influence for the better, you will have the audience you want.
You also have to ensure you are passionate about the things you speak on. If you don’t seem to care as much as they do, why would they want to connect with you, you will come across like you don’t truly understand them. Influence is very dependent on how people feel and their emotions. If you can connect with them emotionally then you will be well on your way to being influential. So be truly passionate about your subject matter. It will make you a lot more believable.
You want to influence people? One major overlooked strategy is to get in the trenches and move person to person simply helping the. This is a good thing to do for a few reason. Firstly it’s just a cool thing to do. Secondly you’re demonstrating your ability to get results. Thirdly you are building relationships based on action. Fourthly you are gaining leverage and good word from others. Business is based on helping people. Apple help you stay connected to your friends, stay occupied when you’re bored and help you organise your life. Domino’s Pizza help you solve your hunger and help you relax not having to make food. Go out and help as many people as you can regardless of if you are getting paid or not.
This only works if you want to genuinely help people live better lives. If you don’t you will be very transparent and people will realise that you are only helping others for your own gain. Yes you will gain from helping people (most of the time) but that should never be the reason you do it in the first place.
Your communication skills are paramount when it comes to how to influence people. If you’re not speaking in a way that resonates with the people you are trying to reach it should be of no surprise it doesn’t reach them. The best way to become better at communicating with your chosen people is to study them, pay attention to what they like, what they talk about and how they talk. If you don’t precisely know your audience you are never going to build that connection strongly enough to be influential to them.
It’s not only a verbal affair. Communication also comes in the form of action. The moves you make and the content you create for your audience. Are you behaving in a way they resonate with? Are you working towards their interests? The things you do are a direct communication to the world. Remember that action speaks louder than words.
It take a good person with a good heart to of course be a good influencer. I believe it is imperative to possess these qualities in order to be influential. Many bad people harness the abilities to be an influencer. There are even people with good intentions who are bad influencers. I think the key is to have an absolute knowledge of self and of people. Thats the only way you can truly know whats good for yourself and others.
Don’t rush for the reward. Do your job as an influencer the right way!
