The Art of Influence and Empowerment – Guest Post by Christy Whitman

This guest post is written by Christy Whitman, Founder of the Quantum Success Coaching Academy

If you really want to affect a change – big or small, in your own life or in the life of another person – it is essential to master the art of influence and empowerment.

So, how do you do this?

It begins with the act of listening. The single most important gift we can offer anyone is the gift of being heard; listening is the cornerstone of every relationship.

Most of us have a running dialog and a perpetual stream of fleeting thoughts running through our heads that prevents us from really listening. Influencing another requires us to compartmentalize our own internal chatter in order to receive the communication of the person who is speaking.

Receiving the communication of another person is more than simply registering their words. It's listening for the nuances that reveal the emotions behind those words. Often the things people don't say is more significant than the things they do. If we are preoccupied with our own thoughts or have formed a foregone conclusion about what someone else is saying, we miss these subtleties completely.

Two important things occur when we listen to another without distractions, preconceptions or judgments.

  1. We forge an intimate connection that goes directly to the intention behind the words being spoken; and
  2. We open up a space for others to imagine new possibilities and conceive a new vision for their lives.

Creating a vision is the first – and most important – step we can take toward fulfilling it.

The next step is generating the certainty within ourselves that we have what it takes to turn that vision into reality.

Then the key to bringing it all together is to understand and apply the universal principles that govern the process of manifesting the visions we hold for their own lives.

With those three key foundations in place, Certified Quantum Success life coaches create the necessary space and guidance to facilitate this process for their clients. Influencing others is not about employing a specific technique (though knowing them is certainly helpful).

The biggest key to natural influence is to break through your limiting beliefs — whether they're in the area of finance, relationships, physical wellbeing, or careers. Once you do that, then you and your clients are EMPOWERED to live more deliberate, conscious, inspired lives than you previously thought possible.

Imagine and Enjoy,

P.S. Being a life coach isn't hard. You just have to know how to do it!

  • You don't have to be perfect
  • You don't have to know all the answers
  • You don't have to already be successful

You don't have to be anything other than who you  are right now!

You see, coaches don't solve problems, they simply assist their clients in finding the answers themselves. 🙂

P.P.S. According to a recent study, life coaches make an average of $207 per hour.

Thousands of people around the world are using the universal principles I teach in my Quantum Success Coaching Academy to transform their lives, the lives of others, and earning a six figure income while doing so.
