Influence is not a choice, but what you do with your influence is. Many people waste their influence, never realizing their potential or becoming apathetic to the impact they could have. Many more spend their influence, devoting their energies to a comfortable life without having to sacrifice much. But few people invest their influence, maximizing their potential while selflessly serving others. There is an art and science to this investment of influence. Those who want to be investors are daily learners of both the art and the science. Do you want to invest your influence? If so, then it’s time to experiment.

055 Humble Confidence

Healthy leaders have an intentional balance of being both humble and confident. They are poised with a confidence in their giftings and abilities while still being open to constructive criticism, feedback, and advice from those around them. They are open to correction while they are also bold in their convictions. They have accurate view of their self- worth that doesn’t dip too low or doesn’t raise too high. They allow others to encourage them without dismissing it while also don’t let it inflame their ego. They have an accurate view of where their strengths end and their weaknesses begin. They can discern when they need to be more flexible or firm in decision making. They surround themselves with people who aren’t just their “yes men/women” but those who will speak truth with radical candor. They live with tough skin but a soft heart. They are eager to be ever-evolving learning leaders. To help us understand the sift through the leadership paradox of living both in humility and confidence is Sandi Wrigley.
