How influential is influence? Kind of a stupid question don’t you think? Well, bare with me for a minute.
What you let influence you, will one day define you my child. I’ll say to my bright eyed son or daughter. And when they ask me how I will tell them this:
Your happiness should be influenced only by one person. Yourself
Your opinion should be influenced only by one person. Yourself
Your vision should be influenced by many, many people but defined only by one. Yourself
Your ethics should be influenced by the fear of many.
(apologies for the ‘my son’ jargon, just watched three episodes of The Game of Thrones)
