It is but natural for people to look up to somebody in their quest to make things better for themselves. We try to find someone who will serve as a good influence to us, some kind of role model. But did you know that you can be someone’s good influence too?
Being a good influence doesn’t mean that you cannot and will not make mistakes, ever. Just like anybody else, you are allowed to make mistakes and no one must judge you for that. How you correct the mistake is what defines you as a person. Admitting one’s shortcomings is not a sign of weakness but rather, it shows how responsible you are.
Humility is quite rare these days amidst all the technology and material things that occupy the life of many people. To be a good influence also means that you are willing to share what you know with other people. You are willing to teach other people through your knowledge, experiences, determination and in the process, you “sharpen” their skill.
Anybody can be a good influence to someone. Start today.
