The people around us have an incredible impact on our lives. They can empower us and encourage us to be the best we can be and inspire us to be more and to aim for the greatest of goals, which is great. But they can also sabotage our lives, weaken our resolve, and muddle our efforts to reach our targets… and that is not so great. Others’ influence can be so strong that it not only affects our world. Because of this we must be extremely selective when surrounding ourselves with others. We must choose consciously and precisely those we take as companions, or even role models, because of their potential to impact and influence us.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
