The 10 Most Influential Women Making a Difference in Healthcare 2021
“You don’t have to be a ‘person of influence’ to be influential. In fact, the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they’ve taught me.” – Scott Adams
Influence is the capacity or ability to make an impact upon the reasoning and actions of others. At one-time, people believed influence to be an ethereal or supernatural substance, which moved from the stars and made individuals act strangely. Today we know, everybody has some influence, however it may not be adequate to inspire others or understand one’s objectives and dreams. Nonetheless, what supports an individual’s influence in the end is his character, conduct and honesty and the impression he or she makes in others. Wealth may get you influence, yet influence without character doesn’t work over the long haul. People may do the bidding of affluent individuals to evade confrontation however may not really and readily be influenced by them, except if they earn their respect.
