I have nothing against anyone who has built their own brand through social media and that calls themself an ‘influencer’.
However, I think that this term is in a way outdated and we need to change it... I don’t think anyone should want to be described as a person who can ‘influence’ others.
To have the power to ‘influence’ is not the same as having the power to IMPACT; when we influence someone, we sway them to our way of thinking (or our way of shopping) until they are influenced by someone or something else. However when we make an impact in someone’s life we change the way they think about something or look a something; we open up real conversation through meaningful questions and we create a want, and often a real need, to learn more.
Social media has the potential to create REAL, MEANINGFUL change.
But that change will only come when those with reach stop ‘influencing’ and start ‘impacting’. Don’t aim to be an ‘influencer’, aim to be an ‘impacter’... #impactdontinfluence#change#powerofsocialmedia#positivechange#postofpositivity#powertochangeminds#makeadiffernce#laurajaneillustrations#tuesdaythoughts#foodforthought ...
Wake up. Close your eyes before stepping out of bed and whisper, “Thank you for the gift of this new day.” Beginning the day with gratitude for your life sets the foundation for everyone you meet and every action you will take my loves.
This is a seemingly small but incredibly profound habit.
What you say to yourself. What you watch. What you read.
All of this MATTERS.
Who you spend time with, where you share your precious energy, it all MATTERS.
The relationship you have with you IS the foundation for your life my loves, so make this your priority now and step into the next decade of 2020 empowered 💪
Become your own best friend, and you will create your happy successful life, in turn creating a loving world of equality, inclusion, and justice. 💛 ...
