There are only two ways to influence human behavior

You can manipulate it or you can inspire it!

It's a title for a quick article I wrote back in October 2015. Six months later I'm writing again about the same topic, which is a quote from the one who I admire, and I believe that he was a part of my growth, Simon Sinek.
During our lives, we meet different people, most of them are really good and for sure some of them are bad, but keep in mind only one thing, both of them will teach you a lesson!

"There are two kinds of pains, sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain, sort of pain that's only suffering. I have no patience for useless things.” --Frank Underwood.

I've noticed, in work, relationships and even in families, that you can influence people around you by, fear or inspiration.

If you show them the insecure side, they will follow you because they will see you as the savior and if you inspired them which eventually will lead to showing them the great side of them, they will also follow you.

Let me put it in a nice way.

Managers don't get paid for what they do but rather for the performance of their people; therefore, a manager's most important job is coaching behaviors in order to improve performance.

Leading is not the same as being the leader. Being the leader means you hold the highest rank, either by earning it, good fortune or navigating internal politics. Leading, however, means that others willingly follow you —
Not because they have to, not because they are paid to, but because
they want to.
