What is it?
Power as defined in the dictionary goes as so: “the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events.”
So one could so this.
POWER = INFLUENCE
Now to pose the question.
How do I influence?
1.) You must have something that the other party wants.
2.) Remember, you will either influence or be influenced
3.) Your influence can come from internal factors, or other people. Pray that it comes from your desires.
4.) The most influential word in the English language is NO. You do not have to do anything anyone says unless you want to.
5.) Be an asshole if it serves a purpose, being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole is pretty useless, kindness and generosity go much farther when people have earned it. Anger and spite only wound if it is for no reason.
How to not be influenced.
Minimal influence from the outside world is inevitable, always ignore people but never ignore reality.
But as it says plain and simple.
If you ignore something, there can be no reaction. Therefore, no influence. Now clearly you only want to do this with people who’s concern for you is not genuine.
