Now that the presidential election is over and President Obama has been re-elected to office, it's time for his inaugural speech. Before I go further, I must confess that I'm not a strong supporter of either the Democratic or Republican political party. I make my decision about my candidate based on their ability to use logic and act in the best interest of the people of the United States.
While on a flight from Portland, Oregon to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, I heard people talking in the airports, at restaurants, and on the airplane about President Obama's inaugural speech and how it's going to be loaded with lies to the American people.
Being a mental toughness coach, I found this to be somewhat humorous because I could see how emotionally charged people were becoming over a subject they can do nothing about. What a waste of energy! I was listening to racist comments, people dropping the 'F bomb' and more or less sharing their own opinions about a subject in which they didn't have the facts.
I want this article to be beneficial to everyone reading it so my question to you is this: "Do you find yourself making emotional based decisions or are you acting on facts and logic?"
If you're acting on emotion, the first step is calming down to recognize it. Once that's happened, ask yourself whether you can do anything about it. If the answer is 'no', then why not drop it and focus on something within your control? By following this advice, you will non only raise your level of consciousness but you will also have an opportunity to enjoy life a bit more by eliminating stress and focusing on what's important in your life.
While many people, including myself, don't like many of the decisions made by Congress, we must learn to play by the rules of the "game" and identify opportunities or legal loopholes that we can take advantage of and progress forward in life financially. This is how the world-class mentality thinks but the middle-class mentality will always resort to emotion based opinions and decision making.
I'd love to hear your comments and thoughts about this subject and appreciate you being a loyal follower of my articles on the Examiner.com website!
