Quick thought on influence

Thought: How often do you tell the people who have influenced you the most that they were a meaningful part of your development as a person?

Rarely, if at all. Maybe you just can’t reach them, or you just decide not to.

Either way, we don’t tell our influencers that they influenced us.

Even just telling your friends, family, that you appreciate them is not a common thing for us to do.

Gratitude is rare.

Now, think about how many people YOU have personally positively affected… And how many of those people have chosen NOT to tell you. Probably most of them. Maybe they can’t reach you or have chosen to stay silent. But that doesn’t mean you aren’t being a positive vibe.

This thought drives me to continue being the best version of myself, both knowingly and unknowingly positively influencing others on the way.

The best and ONLY thing we should do is continue striving for greatness–however you define that term. Good Luck.
