Develop a clear vision. It is crucial to be very clear on your vision. This vision must be readily accepted by not only your consious mind, but also a knowing that you have developed in your subconscious mind. This goes beyond just thinking it is true, but knowing that it is real in your minds eye.
Be the Change. Be the change you want to see in the world. So in order to really influence individuals, you have to be the example. You have to have already deep within your being, that which you want others to also have for themselves. This is leadership by example. If you are being that which you want others to follow, you have to have that change already within you.
Belief in your ideas. You have to have an unwavering belief in your ideas. You have to know this without any shadow of doubt that you will get where you intend to go. This belief reflects in your daily actions. This goes back to being the example for others. As you become very strong in your belief in what you are doing, others will follow.
