One of the best ways to get noticed and be heard is to become an influencer. When you’re an influencer, you are looked up to, respected, and followed for advice and support. While there are many methods out there that you could use, here are some that many influencers are using on a regular basis.
Here are the 8 ways to becoming a powerful influencer:
1. Affect The Masses
If you want to become an influencer, you’ll need to be able to influence people at a large scale. Becoming an influencer in your industry can be simple if you do it right. Some of the ways you can do this is by becoming a speaker, learning skill sets that will drive more people to you, and going to local meetup groups and sharing your knowledge.
2. Think Bigger
Thinking bigger helps you reach your goals quicker. That doesn’t mean that you set unrealistic goals like going to Mars tomorrow. You should set realistic goals that are attainable and help push you in the right direction. Keeping a to-do list or a daily checklist will help you set bigger goals for the long term, and what you can do daily to accomplish them.
3. Create Opportunities
One of the most important things you can do as an influencer is to create opportunities for others. People are looking to learn and grow, and when you produce an opportunity that will help them achieve massive success in a short amount of time, they will stay with you till the end. Learn what others are looking for and what you can add to their lives to become successful.
“One of the most powerful networking practices is to provide immediate value to a new connection. This means the moment you identify a way to help someone, take action.” – Lewis Howes
4. Follow The Trends
Success leaves a trail. If you want to be a successful influencer, look at what is already working in the moment. Find out how people are becoming influencers in their niche and follow suit, but make sure not to copy them. Find out what successful influencers are doing right now, find out what you can do to add more value and solutions, and model their success.
5. Apply What You’re Learning
When you learn something you should be applying it immediately. Don’t read a book just to read a book. Instead, read or watch something that applies to you right now that will help you reach the next level. Doing this will keep you taking action and getting closer to your goals every single day.
6. Follow Systems
Humans fail. Systems don’t. The reason why influencers are successful is that they understand that people make mistakes. If you can help systematize the process and create methods by which things should be done, your success rate at becoming an influencer will increase.
7. Help Others More Than Yourself
It’s like Zig Ziglar’s saying, “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.” When you can help others with their problems, dreams, and obstacles, you will receive the same therapy. Learn the proper skill sets that others are struggling with so that you can have an impact on their lives.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.” – Anne Frank
One thing that a lot of people forget is that consistency builds trust. Trust at the end of the day is the most important factor in everything you do. The more consistent you can be, the more trust people have in you which leads to becoming a powerful influencer.
There are many benefits in becoming an influencer. Are you ready to start? Are you ready to become the person you’d like to be? You’ll be surprised at how many of these tips are being used by influencers every single day.

Follow This 2-Step Process to Stay Motivated When You Feel Like Nothing Is Going Right
The dialogue in your mind is the battleground where your motivation lives and dies every day. In every moment, your words are either lifting you or sabotaging your success. Unfortunately, most people are losing this battle within themselves. They are using their most powerful asset — their mental energy — to beat themselves up, play victimization games, or stop themselves from sharing their passion. (more…)

This Is How An Ordinary Person Can Make Their Country Better.
Someone asked on the internet how they can make their country better.
They considered themselves ordinary and felt that they had to be someone special to make a difference in their country, India.
Their question made me feel a bit emotional because I can relate. I too have also dreamt of making my country better.
The most common answer to this question is to get involved in politics.
Many of you reading this find politics really boring including me. I’ve learned through my own experience that politics is not the only way you can make your country better.
Here’s how you can make your country better:
Use your voice
When I was faced with the question “How do I make my country better?” I decided to use my voice.
It was this decision that changed everything. I spent every day using my voice to stand for something. I wanted to inspire the world through entrepreneurship and personal development.
So, I started using my voice by posting on LinkedIn. I used my voice and transcribed it into words to tell the citizens of my country what I think they needed to hear.
Using your voice is incredibly scary at first. As soon as you start sharing your thoughts, many people will say nothing. You’ll get almost no feedback. As your voice starts to get louder over time (probably years) the opposite will happen and you’ll attract trolls and critics.
The hardest part about using your voice is having the courage every day to use it and not being obsessed with the outcome.
By using my voice online through blogging and LinkedIn, I managed to get a 35,000 person bank to start talking about my ideas with staff and customers, and I was voted LinkedIn Australia’s Top Voice that year.
Using the power of your voice is the number one way you can change your country.
It’s in your experiences, ideas and thoughts that you can find what it is that can help your country.
In my country, Australia, we are quite well off, but we still lack a positive mindset. Some of us work jobs we hate and we like things that only money can buy. There’s a competition to get the biggest house or the most expensive car.
It’s not a problem everyone in Australia suffers from, but it’s widespread. I believe by using my own voice to inspire people to seek alternatives, I can change my country.
The results thus far suggest I’m well on the way to changing my country.
Changing your country seems like a huge task. It sounds like something only a Nelson Mandela sort of fella can achieve. That’s not true.
A simple understanding of the power of kindness can change your country.
There was this guy I read about online that changed his country by giving out free hugs because he couldn’t run in the local marathon. He embraced his kind nature and ended up impacting millions of people in his country.
Being kind is infectious because we’re wired to do it. When we see one person be kind, we want to do the same.
The problem in my country (and many others) is that we’ve sacrificed kindness for greed.
We’ve let our country’s economy become the most important factor instead of measuring the way we treat people and the ability of a country’s nation to overcome adversity together.
Kindness is so important because every one of our countries will face adversity, and kindness is the solution to that inevitable problem.
Pick up the trash
This one seems even smaller in impact. It’s not.
I found that by picking up the rubbish I saw in places like my apartment lobby, I was able to show myself that I care about my country.
When we care about our country, we choose to make it look beautiful so others can enjoy it. Something simple like picking up the trash can take you a long way towards helping your country.
Every country has an environmental problem and picking up rubbish can help solve it. If we all picked up one piece of trash, then each of our country’s would be a hell of a lot cleaner.
Don’t think you can’t make your country better
A lot of what I’ve learned, by trying to make my own country better, has come from the belief that I can have an impact.
There are so many people who want to do nothing more than complain which wastes time and energy and doesn’t make anyone’s country better.
The way you make your country better is by believing you can and taking one or two small actions to start the process.
The people that change their country believe they can.
50 Cent Scored Half a Billion Dollars – How 50 Made a Killing Off Water
In “The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop,” author Dan Charnas traces how rap grew from its obscure roots in the ghettos of 1970s New York to its culmination as the world’s predominant youth pop culture and a multibillion-dollar industry.
The event that epitomized just how far hip-hop had come was the headline-grabbing partnership between the rapper 50 Cent and the upstart beverage company Glaceau, the maker of VitaminWater. It may well have been the biggest deal in hip-hop history, propelling 50 Cent’s personal net worth toward a half-billion dollars.
In this excerpt, Charnas outlines how it happened. (more…)
