High Dreams August 2016, Influence
Leadership is about creating a conscious influence. The key to influencing is being initially influenced, that is being open to knowledge and exploring.
“Old master pulled himself away from his deep reflection by the persistent knocking at his door. A richly attired man barged in without waiting for invitation. He breathlessly introduced himself with a nasal voice and started talking, “You should be aware, honorable master, that this novice coming to your presence today is a well-known  and respected scholar. I am one of the most trusted counselors of the king. The king does not stir a finger without consulting to me. My advice and wisdom naturally attract demand from other powerful people. It was not easy for me to attain my present position. I have worked with the best masters, I have followed the strictest disciplines, and I constantly endeavor to improve myself. Your knowledge and teachings were repeatedly recommended to me by various people. Therefore, I’ve come to see you.”
Catching a short pause at the visitor’s incessant speech, the master offered the visitor to drink together a cup of tea. The visitor continued declaring his successes and telling the master his theories as the master poured tea.
The cup was full, but the master continued pouring as the tea spilled from the cup to the table and from there to the visitor’s lap. The visitor sprang up and shouted as he shook of his coat: “Old man, can you not see that the cup is full? Why do you keep pouring tea although the cup cannot take more?”
The old master said, “Your mind is, my son, like this cup. It is too full to gain new knowledge. Go and empty it. Until you come to me with a mind like an empty cup, I have nothing to teach to you.”” (Judith Malika Liberman, Fairy Tale Therapy, “Full Cup”)
How ready are you to empty your cup?

Be influential with love,
