Whatever it is, you begin to establish authority when you do something in a way that is unique through the creative process.
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men - Proverbs 22:29
Authority comes from stepping out of the realm of ordinary and stepping into the realm of kingship; stepping into the realm of creation- stepping into the realm of creating what you desire, by God's grace, in this world.
Creation is the process of developing authority. Once you create or begin to exercise your ability to cause a change in your marketplace, you will begin to have the authority that you desire.
Authority is extremely influential.
It's the reason when you see a police officer wearing a certain uniform, you automatically think this person has influence in the area of law enforcement.
What can you use to distinguish yourself so that people can gather that you have influence in an area and that you can make things happen?
Just like that police officer has authority from the instant that you see the uniform, you need to create a world of instant authority for you and your companies. From the instant that people see you, if you develop your authority, they should know what you are about.
