Having the power, or ability, to influence another can and will make your life much simpler.
Now before you start reading, think about why it should matter as to why having the ability to influence another matter.
The answer is simple: it gets you somewhere. Think about it. Academic achievements or prodigious talents can only get you so far in life as a printed word on a piece of paper.
Sure, you’ve got a good stand off in your future compared to your classmates. You’re one of the honors student in the school. You have a shelf of trophies lying around in your dorm room or your house. Yet, what of it?
When other’s look at you they will think, “Wow, what an honors kid,” or “They’re going to have a bright future ahead of them.” Those compliments are nice, are they not?
However, despite all those achievements, how well is your social connection with others? People are going to know that you’re smart, but they’re not going to know if you’re worthy of their time.
Think about that for a moment. How far can your intelligence travel if your connections with others are below average?
Did you know that majority of jobs are gained through connections? If you don’t connect with someone, you’ll have to start from the bottom. Sure, that sounds like a wonderful challenge to prove your skills, but unless if you have an aspect about yourself that stands out, good luck.
