The power of influence
I believe some of us a born with indefinite power of influence, an ability to drive even the strongest of minds to your point of view, trend of thought or ideas. It’s sort of manipulative really how a highly influential person sweetly moves not one but a crowd of persons to follow him. We see it displayed in all arenas, such as in politics,fashion,our work places,religion,courtship and even marriage etc. a husband who is known as the head of the house can influence his entire family to join him in almost anything, and if he is a good man then that is a blessed home. This can either be good or bad; a father who is a bad influence can drive his son to being laid back, controlling and even to drugs making it seem harmless and a normal approach to life.
A person who is a bad influencer can turn all good Morales down the drain with reasoning so profound that you couldn’t tell what was wrong with the idea. However one who is a good influencer can also raise a standard against society ills and convince a whole clan to fight with him against it. But where do influence stem from? We have heard about one being under the influence of drugs,alchohol, heard of charges being dropped because of these, but what about the influencer, who really spans his wings and ignite him with what I consider a sort of power to make a change, alter minds into doing and saying things causing others to see things through their perspective? I would like to conclude that it stems from God, maker of all good things. And we as individuals have a chose whether to utilize this gift for good or bad.
I do admire those with such a gift though, who choose to do good make a positive change and lead!
