Power and Position


I don’t know maybe they matter but maybe not.

On the deeper scheme of things power and position becomes irrelevant if you have personal influence. The Personal Influence that is borne out of your track record in producing results and showing care for others.

If you ask me if I would rather have power and position versus personal influence, I would happily and unanimously choose personal influence.

Power and position are useless if people do not believe you. It is like being a leader that prepared a keynote speech for a large gathering of his organization only to find nobody is attending.

But my thinking and belief runs counter to reality. A lot of people choose power and position. They forget you cannot give what you have which means not matter how high your position is or powerful you are if nobody believes you the two P’s are just decorations and nothing more.
