Influence: A definition

The post before the last one was about comparing the influence two people had on history. You may wonder what I consider to be influence. How is influence really rated? Here are three factors that I have thought of for now:

Hom much the person influenced their world during their lifetime.

How much the person affects the modern world.

Difficulties person faced and overcame and overall dificulty of the tasks of the person.

Further comments and ideas are welcome. This is just the beginning and I will probably talk more about this later on. Feel free to tell me your thoughts on historical influence.
