“People with real influence don’t talk about it; they do things.” (tweet that if you like)

I love that brilliant bit of insight which Linda Bernsteinof, aka @WordWhacker tweeted in a recent #GetRealChat tweet chat.

It’s a great reminder that real influence is not a matter of how many friends or followers or shares you get in social media.  Real influence is doing things – taking initiative, leading, organizing, and inspiring others – that have a positive impact on people’s lives.

What are you doing – online or offline – that’s having a real influence?

Don’t be shy or humble. Share your excitement! Give God the glory for what he is enabling you to do!

  1. Wanna share something that Dag Heward-Mills is doing, which has greatly inspired me. He's a pastor of a local church who has succeeded in taking the gospel to several African countries in the form of large international gospel crusades. He's a living testament of everything he teaches. In his book "Tell Them", he enumerates about 120 reasons why we must preach the gospel, and he's fully living it out, and so far millions of people have given their lives to Christ- now that's INSPIRING! Check it out and be blessed! :)
