Long after the power of authority wanes, the power of influence remains. How long will you have a vital influence on the lives of others? Will you remain a force for good, a source of encouragement, a vital voice in the sea of other clamoring voices?
The growing mind is not a groaning mind. It is charged with a vitality that makes others say, “Oh, thanks for sharing. I think I’m going to get a copy of that book.”
When someone says, “I never thought of it that way before,” you know you’re still extending your influence beyond the boundaries of where others would count you out.
Keep learning. Keep growing. Keep challenging yourself and others.
