Do you think influence is either a crushing weight or a rising tide?

If the people we allow to influence our lives will shape who we become. 

If the people who get close to us will shape the quality of our lives.

If the people we spend significant time with will impact the habits we adopt or reject.

Then how do we determine the people who get to influence us?  What kind of influence are we with others?

Over the next few weeks we are going to explore critical challenges to these questions as we go Under the Influence.
