As more people are trying to figure out how to leverage Social Media for their business and personal lives, there are more services that are popping up and attempting to accelerate the process.
One of the services that has been around for some time is Klout, which enables people to generate a form of influence ranking.
That’s all well and good, but I’ll go with time-tested, proven clout.
The dictionary defines clout as, “pull, strong influence”.
Don’t worry about trying to generate clout. Do the right thing. Every time. Do what you say you’re going to do. Under-promise and over-deliver. Get up early and work hard. Add massive value. Pay attention to the little things. Don’t sacrifice long-term success for short-term gain.
Clout is like nature. It will grow in its own time when we follow true success principles.
And don’t worry about what other people think of you. What other people think of you is none of your business. Do the right thing and let the chips fall where they will. And the irony is that any time you spend worrying about your clout is sure to diminish your true clout.
