Ultimate Influence

Posted By: Randy GageNovember 1, 2013

Want to sell more, market more, or recruit more?  Want to lead a movement?  Want to change the world? 

If you do, then you need something very important:  influence.  So what exactly is influence?

A good way to find out is to ask someone who has it.  That someone would be Bob Burg. Bob has been influencing audiences from the platform for decades.  Along with John David Mann, Bob created the Go-Giver movement, which has inspired people around the world to do more, have more and become more.  And he’s influenced over a million readers with his books.  Here’s how Bob defines influence:

“On a very basic level, influence can be defined as the ability to move a person or persons to a desired action, usually within the context of a specific goal.  However, when accomplished correctly, this has nothing to do with cajoling, pushing or manipulating others. It does mean that you can consistently obtain satisfaction and reach your goals while building others; touching their lives in a very positive, value-based way.”

Now that is real influence.  And it’s also the premise of his new book titled, Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion.  I was fortunate enough to be able to read a galley proof of the manuscript.  It was so powerful I immediately asked Bob’s permission to share it with a business colleague who was facing a difficult challenge.  (Which he graciously assented to.)

The book launched yesterday.  I strongly suggest you get it now.  It’s packed with powerful examples and lessons of how to expand your influence, and do it with integrity.  You’ll discover all the details here.  Devour it and let me know what you think.

  4. Gentlemen,
    I "ordered" the pre-view of the 1st chapter and must admit after reading that this chosen topic offers great content for training in companies and even with families. 
    Honestly Bob, with this book you´re dealing with an effective challenge we´re all confronted with throughout our lives. It already starts when teenagers start mentally splitting from their parents.
    Thanks for sharing, Randy.

  5. Leeloo Leeloo, thank you for your thoughtful comment and kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed Chapter 1 and hope you find the book to be of value. I appreciate ya'!

  6. @bobburg Leeloo Bob, I should get it for my nephew.... I am glad he´s into reading & speaking the English language more than others here in Germany. I love the word-definitions you´ve used. They set a clear point for the reader!

  7. Dear Randy 
    You are all the time talking about how brainwashed people are 
    Now , sit down and verify how brainwashed you were 

    1.How do you explain that Edison from general electric who make that everyone can have a bulb and electricity at their homes 
    he  was a member of illuminati who worship satan doctrines?
    how do you explain that its forbidden to people generate free energy for cars , house etc. ?
    And people who try to share free energy  ideas to public was killed  or  they shuted their mouth?

    2 How do you explain Michel Jackson who was in illuminati , Madonna, Lady Gaga , Manson, Rihanna ,
    They all worship satanic doctrines and how do you explain that when somebody like whitney houston , 2 pac,   amy winehouse  
    want to run away from them or dont listen them  - they are killed ?

    3. How do you explain that all live system , all medical education system is preparing in order to  weaken/ destroy  people?
    Illumanti preapare medical education system to brainwash doctors , then give dose of medicine people to weaken their immunology system but not kill
    they create regular slaves costumers just only buy , eat and pay bills..., cure is not beneficial 
    They hide truth that every pland behind our house , in our garden , is free medicine 
    Every natural food is properly digestive 
    and every every every supplement all synthetic vitamins , minerals , everything synthetic, processed 
    is not digestive by our organizm . synthetics go to joints , and every where example gallstones 
    J>D>Rockefeller - is a one of the main creator of this lucypher doctrin , He destroy everyone who stand on his way 

    Are that people prosperity models?Do you know what really mean american idol?Check it 😀

    All owners TV<Hollywood is full of illuminati satanistic doctrines, symbols, 
    People worship them , want to be like them , 

    they sold their soul  for money and luxury life 
    Do you think Britney Spears is happy?
    On videoclips maybe but in reality she is tired of being their slaves 

    I do not say that everyone rich  is  in illuminati , but most od them are  especially  top industries and goverment . they are so  proud , overbearing , they think they are better than another people , treat normal people like rubbish ....
    They hide truth , and destroy people 
    they think that they can do whatever they want because of power authority .But dont ..Truth and good always win in the end .But think about it what is real  prosperity , what kind of people you take an example

  8. Roksana749 There are indeed some cruel people with money and power. 
    However, there are plenty of cruel middle class and poor people who'd rather that everyone were miserable than have any friends, family, or colleagues be happier than them.
    They believe they are slaves to money, their pasts, and their present circumstances.
    It's not true, but if you believe something enough, it might as well be.
    However, money and power does not make people cruel. It only amplifies what is there.
    There are a lot of people who do not trust themselves and are envious of others who have achieved something they value but did not have the courage to achieve themselves.
    There are people in religion, education, government, Unions, even companies, and other organizations who cater to this mentality.

    The only purpose it serves is to chain people down. 
    It's people engaging in a co-dependent Master and Slave sort of relationship which isn't goo for anyone.

    This country was built on the notion of Individual fulfillment, accomplishment, and trade.
    While I do not agree with your idea of an Illuminati conspiracy, there are some people who can and do want to take this away, but I am more concerned about the neighbor down the street forming a mob, than someone higher up.
