If you look at the candidates in the 2016 Presidential election TODAY, there are actions that they have learned from years ago, so I don’t focus on what they did in the past.
I look at who they are TODAY.
Yes, we all make mistakes, but what makes a strong leader is by learning from them and moving forward into becoming a better person today than who we were yesterday.
The same goes for the President of the United States of America.
There have been a LOT of things said about each candidate’s past that can only be summed up as non-powerful statements that don’t allow us to move forward.
It’s non-powerful to get all riled up about something that someone did 20-30 years ago. Yes, it’s essential to LEARN from it, but it doesn’t do anyone any good holding the past over someone’s present and future outlooks.
In order to create the impossible NOW, you cannot be attached to what the past was like THEN, or yesterday.
Past performance does NOT represent future performance; it’s called a change of heart known in Christian scripture as REPENTANCE.
In social media, the victims really came out, in which we saw celebrities state that they were going to leave the country and victims are wanting to blame someone else.
If you live as a victim, you will not be able to see CHANGE.
Who is in the White House does not dictate who you are going to be in your own house, which is your own kingdom.
A perfect example of this is from Viktor Frankl who wrote Man’s Search for Meaning, who had every right to be a victim during the Nazi holocaust as a prisoner in one of their concentration camps, and yet he REFUSED to be a victim.
According to Dr. Frankl, to not live like a victim is to state that they can take everything away from us, but the one thing they cannot take from us is our ability to CHOOSE.
Either you’re powerful or you’re not, depending on whether or not you want to remain a victim or not.
Perspective creates possibility, and powerful people are not victims of circumstance.
You can choose and you can create, and regardless of who is in the White House, you can create your own perspective.
* Where in my life am I choosing a perspective that is NOT giving me further possibilities?
* Where in my life am I being a victim today?
* What is something I can do today to change my perspective in helping me move forward rather than remain stuck in the past?
I’m going to choose a life as a powerful creator, regardless of who’s running the country, I’m in control of ME, and refuse to allow myself to be a victim.
