When you are a thought leader, people pay you for your ideas. It is not only a great business model, but it’s also very rewarding to know your ideas are making an impact on someone’s life.
In this article, you are going to get the secret to being a thought leader—a secret nobody else is talking about.
Who Am I?
I’m Andréa Albright. I am the CEO and Founder of Beverly Hills Publishing. I’m also a thought leader. I’ve been writing books for over 15 years now, and I have reached millions of people with my ideas and my thoughts. Now, this may sound very basic and simple, but when you are a thought leader, that means you are on the cutting edge of your industry and you are going where no one else is going.
You are discovering things that no one else is discovering. Then, you are sharing it with your audience, your community, and your industry. So this term “thought leader” is being used a lot in today’s society because we continue to need thought leaders to go to the edge and discover the solutions that solve humanity’s problems.
What’s the Difference Between a Thought Leader and an Influencer?
So a lot of people have asked me, “What’s the difference between an influencer and a thought leader?” Well, an influencer can have many followers. They can have people following them on social media. They can have an impact on people’s lives. But the difference is that a thought leader is either publishing their thoughts or they are creating new systems, processes, products, and techniques. This is something that has been distilled into a complete package and is a new solution for someone to use. A solution that could have a drastic result in someone’s life.
And while thought leaders also have followers, they’re different than just an influencer who may be an entertainer, or they have a point of view. But they haven’t actually published or packaged their ideas in a simple, compact way. A way that someone could purchase that solution and invest it in their own life.
So whether you are an influencer and you want to become a thought leader, or if you are looking to start thought leadership in your own industry without having any followers. This secret is going to give you a huge advantage.
The Secret No One Else Is Talking About
The secret no one else is talking about is that people think we need more information. And if you’re trying to just give people information, you’re never going to be a thought leader. Here’s what I mean.
It used to be that having information was very rare. We had very little access to knowledge. So the people who devoted their lives to acquiring knowledge were considered our thought leaders of the time. It didn’t matter whether it was a scholar who had devoted his or her life to one particular subject, or it was someone who got a Ph.D. Which means they had access to a university-level education. They had access to all this information the average person would never have access to.
It used to be that we needed information. We needed to have access to these thought leaders because the thought leaders had acquired so much knowledge and so much information.
How and Why Everything Has Changed
Reach into your pocket or your purse and pull out your phone. That phone has all the information you could ever want or need. We could even argue that we are in information overload. We are now bombarded by information. What used to be considered rare, which was having easy access to information, we now have a super-computer in our hands all day, every day.
So any information you need, you can get it in less than a millisecond. Therefore, thought leadership is evolving. What we are now looking for in thought leaders is not information, because we are bombarded by more and more and more information every single day. The human mind cannot keep up with the amount of information that is being thrown at us each day.
How Thought Leadership Has Evolved
This information overload has actually caused a sense of anxiety, overwhelm, and chaos in our minds. That’s why we are looking for thought leaders who are not providing information but thought leaders who are integrators. They are integrating all the information into a simple system, a simple concept, one book, one product, one phrase.
That is where thought leadership is going and how it is actually evolving.
Let me say that again.
This is the new form of thought leadership. Someone who can take all that information and distill it into the most simplistic form so the user can actually process it and integrate it into their life, their body, their mind, their heart, and into their business. Whatever the solution, the user needs to be able to take that solution and digest it and integrate it, so it actually becomes part of them.
So if you are wanting to be a thought leader, I am giving you this secret because the world needs more humans who have devoted their lives to taking all of this information and distilling it into the most simplistic, perfect, and easy to process nugget. This is so the user can integrate it and it can become a part of them forever. Therefore, this is a big secret that most people aren’t even aware of. And this is how you can stand out as a thought leader in your industry.
Becoming an Integrator
So forget about acquiring more information. Be an integrator, someone who people can trust and follow, because they know you are giving them the most perfect solution in the most simplistic way.
I hope this has opened your eyes, and I hope that you are now going to start to look at your thought leadership in a different way.
