re:Position Your Love

reposition-heartLast night I co-facilitated a training workshop that focused on helping people to understand how they could influence almost anyone – not from a position of power, but from a position of genuine love. It was an incredible learning experience for the both the attendees and facilitators.

Prior to being invited to help teach this workshop, I had not considered love as a “strategy” to influence people. Of course I knew the importance of loving people, but I’m not sure if I ever looked at the benefit of loving people as an intentional “tactic” to increase my influence in a positive manner.

I believe this concept has a lot of potential, especially for those who have a desire to utilize their talents, skills, resources, knowledge and experience in profitable and creative ways that benefit others.

When you examine it, though, there is really nothing new about this concept. An ancient Hebrew rabbi – I think his name was Jesus – demonstrated that amazing things can be accomplished with a lot of love and a few followers. Over 2000 years later, we are still benefiting and learning from his example of love-leveraged influence.

This weekend I will be presenting my re:Position Life Transition Summit (click here for details). After last night’s session, I had to ask myself, do I really “love” the people that are coming, or are they just attendees/customers? Am I creating something that’s in their best interest or in mine? Who is going to benefit the most from our time together, them or me?

Since I asked myself these questions, I can’t let you off the hook. Do you love the people you want to influence? Or are you trying to influence them for your personal benefit? Do you have opportunities to help people that you ignore? Who can benefit from your giftedness that you might be overlooking?

Due to our economic challenges, widespread poverty, pandemic diseases, rampant corruption, low societal morale and other on-going life issues each of us has an incredible opportunity to demonstrate love to people in our own unique and creative ways. People are waiting to be loved genuinely and unconditionally.

Don’t use this season of your life just to focus on just yourself. Somebody needs your smile, hug, encouragement, talent, resources, knowledge, ideas or time. As an added benefit, your network of opportunities and resources has a chance to grow exponentially when you choose to serve and assist people in their time of need.

I hope you’re willing to re:Position your love. If so, your return on investment will be invaluable!
