Influential Leadership


Think of one influential standout leader that you look to regularly. Then ask yourself, 'what characteristics or qualities do they have that make them so magnetic?'


Now shift gears, and think of someone in your life that you do NOT look up to; perhaps this individual is always sick, or they're financially broke or pessimistic, and you don't enjoy being around them.


And ask yourself, what is the one core difference between these two individuals?


Hint, it's not their money, their power, their status. It's not their home, their car.


It's their personal belief about who they are.


That is the difference between someone who is, have not.


The influencers you admire most likely have a strong sense of self-love and a sense of certainty about who they are and what they want from life.


Any person in this world can have, do or be whatever it is they desire, but it first starts with their ability to believe in themselves.


And when you can believe in yourself, you will then develop the solutions and strategies to go after or connect with the right people to help you get those things you desire.


If you're truly striving to increase your ability to influence others, to become an influential leader in life in business, it first starts by looking within.

How to motivate others?


The simple answer. Understand their why.


Our human nature is to take action to either increase our pleasure or to avoid pain.


If you want to influence others, follow you, buy your program, or invest in your services, you must first be influenced.


You must first be moved before you can motivate. You must know your own intrinsic why for wanting to have, do, or be something more.


The more you study yourself, the better you'll understand others.


From an early age, we are taught, "if I do THIS, THEN I'll get ..."


Your prospective buyers, followers, clients, or community members are no different.


If I do this, then I'll get this result.


To successfully motivate others, you must be able to paint the picture of a possibility for them. The better the picture you can paint, the more likely they will want to take that journey with you now; how do we convince them that you're someone worth following? Well, here are my five power moves.


What are Global beliefs?


Global beliefs are generalizations we make about things, circumstances, and people.


Our brains need category 'buckets' for information to fit in.


On an individual level, we make generalizations and assumptions about ourselves using words like..."I, I am, is, are, etc."


I am strong.


Money is God in motion.


Geting new clients is easy and fun.


These core identifiers that we use to frame our perception of reality.


It doesn't matter who you are, what age you are, where in the world you are tuning in from; you have global beliefs.


And when you can first understand your beliefs, you will more likely be able to understand others.


When you're in a conversation with a prospect and share something like...


"I believe that all coaches are full of crap."


As a coach your knee-jerk reaction would be to disagree with them.


But if you want to influence them, you must agree with them first.


NOTE: I'm not saying that you abandon your belief.


If your global belief is that coaches are fantastic and necessary to help one take their life and business to the next level.


You identify that the word "coach" is a negative trigger in their mind. Please don't waste your time trying to change theirs. Instead, agree with them that you believe that they believe "coaches are full of crap." Then follow it up with your truth.


You could say along the lines of, "I agree that you believe most coaches are full of crap, but actually, I don't fully identify as a coach. I see myself as a life and business success strategist. I'm not about fluffing you up or motivating you to take action. I'm all about giving you proven step-by-step strategies to get you from where you are to where you want to go."


Know what it is you believe in, and stick by it. But also be willing to accept your prospect where they are and then influence them through the power of positive persuasion. Not by fighting against what your prospect new client believes but rather by reenforcing what it is they desire.
