A man under the influence of alcohol sees the world differently from the rest of us. He sees possibilities that he never imagined which we cannot see. What an unusual ability to be able to see the world differently?
But wait a minute! Do you actually think I would want to promote being drunk? No way! Besides, all you get from alcohol is a bad headache and a very unfocused day.
However, there are some things that are good for us. I mean there are some influences that are great for us and I have seen men do great things under some strange influences.
Before you think of anything negative or plan to close this page, lets take a look at each of them. Here are some influences that you need to be under:

Under this influence, you don’t take note of failure because you are a man of purpose; a man with a very strong resolve which is why your major concern is to achieve your goal.
This kind of influence is so interesting. people come around you rather than avoid you because they feel a sense of belonging. You are so teachable and are willing to always empty your cup to refill with knowledge.
When you are under the influence of Courage, You look at fear eyeball to eyeball. You see circumstances and problems as an adventure. You overcome your fear even when the sign says that you should quit.

Now when you are under the influence of leverage, then you are on the shoulders of giants. You will learn from their experiences and develop your skills quickly. You avoid unnecessary mistakes and reinventing the wheel.
Under the influence of creativity, people think of you as awkward. Your perception of life is a problem to the Status Quo.
If you don’t want to be stimulated, then stay clear of this kind of influence. It will always spur you to action
When you know what needs to be done and you do it even when you don’t what to, then you are under the influence of discipline. Now you are sometimes seen as very strict and not flexible but you are friend to commitment.
We all need to be under this influence as this is a campaign against ignorance. This is a threat to mediocrity and an enemy of failure but a blessing to the world.
If you value your professional and complex jargon, don’t be under this influence else people will take notice of your great communication skills rather than your profession and confusing words.
