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.
