Mark Zuckerberg has created a mass movement in social media, but beyond that he has become an influential leader in his company and throughout the world. He leads his team by allowing them to share ideas, be accessible to his employees and he doesn’t believe in having a hierarchy. The old way of thinking is gone. Facebook focuses less on job titles and more on collaboration and creativity.

According to best-selling author Dirk Van Loon, influence must be shared, communicated, and amplified at a mass level to generate a successful movement. No matter what you want whether it’s to start the next Facebook, be a good supervisor at your job or even coaching a top athlete, you have to know how to influence others. You have the ability to change the world.

Can you influence the masses? Yes, you can! Stop asking yourself these old questions:

  • Is hierarchy the way for you?
  • Is it all about who is right?
  • Is it only done right if you do it yourself?

Most people think influence comes automatically. To create lasting effects and create change, it’s time for you to LEAD.

  • Live in the moment: Be present physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually: Stop doing what you’re doing and focus on the person.
  • Energy: The energy in a situation is critical. Your level of energy is the most important thing in a situation.
  • Acknowledge: Praise people, acknowledge their strengths, and express appreciation.
  • Develop LUV every person you meet over the next 30 days. Practice Listening, Uplifting and Validating every person even if you don’t know them. Magic will happen!
