To start with – It take rapport, building good rapport with people is essential.  Rapport builds trust and respect.  You need this if you want to have people follow you.  Rapport like empathy is important when building relationships with others in understanding their feelings and ideals.

Mistakes happen – Admit it, you’ve made mistakes, they do happen.  When you make them own up to them, you’ll get more respect for that then you realize.  Consider this, people make mistakes, that’s why pencils have erasers.  Being open to admitting mistakes or that you “didn’t know” or errors in thnking will only make you far more valuable.  So, if you were wrong and others knew it and you don’t own up to it, that can hurt your influence.  It will only show that you are imperfect like others, and that you have trusting emotional human qualities.

Use people’s names – We are conditioned from a young age to respond positively to the sound of our name.  It acknowledges our uniqueness by the use of our name.

Smiles work – Smile often and with sincerity.  This means a lot to people as it’s an automatic reaction that brings pleasure to others.  When you see a smile, it opens the door to positivity.  Others take pleasure in seeing you with a smile.  No one wants to see a frown.  Smiles can be shared, and they attract others.

Awaken people’s wants – People want things, so why not wake them up to them.  Show them how you can help them get what they want with less hassle.  You actually may make people see wants they didn’t see clearly on.  You can also help them with what they need too in the same manor.  This part is more critical for them in their everyday functioning as a human being.  There is a difference between wants and needs.

Accept all – Accept people with any conditions and be open to them and you’ll reap the rewards for being that way.  You want to be accepted when you go somewhere, so don’t you think others would too?  Lots of people have different shortcomings and weaknesses, and it will make a huge difference to them if they are accepted as they are.  Make people feel respected and important.

Be Careful – Don’t take all these lightly, have integrity and don’t make promises you can’t keep.  A person of influence is indeed a person of interest.   Don’t be what you aren’t and you’ll go far.  Be true to those who rely on you.  You have feelings and would want the same things.  This is just a basic list of traits and tips to get you pointed in the right direction in evolving into a person of influence.  Yes, I said evolve, as it takes time to perfect.  Even when you do perfect it, you’re not perfect.  Remember again to “be careful”.  Start with checking your integrity and how you are with it.  That’s a good way to get started.
