‘I’m Writing Bravely for the Write Tribe Festival of Words – March 2019’
For this round I am challenging myself to writing acrostic poems.
Day 5 prompt is Influence
I - Impacting someone or many with your words or actions
N - Noting that the negative can be devastating
F - Function within your circle of influence
L - Live and let live. Letting go if things don't serve either well
U - Understanding how actions / words affect others. Understanding others.
E - Effective communication that uplifts, but is always honest.
N - Needs occur for all, nuture don't destroy
C - Choose win / win for both or all. Work in the spirit of cooperation
E - Encourage others to achieve more than they think they can. Then you have truly influenced another to be the best they can be.
"Influence" always reminds me of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it.
And this quote sums up why understanding how we influence others is so important.
“We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why.”
This year I changed the way I post on Instagram. Instead of just posting pictures, I add a quote to go with it. I hope that those that read my Instagram posts, find them not only interesting but uplifting. I will be applying the same to my blogging and tweeting. To be a positive influencer is my hope for 2019.
