Presidential Thoughts (46)
by Charmaine Hunte
“If you think you can or cannot your right” Henry Ford
On Nov, 2008, Barack Obama became the 44th President Elect of the United States of America; it was a victory at the end of a 22 month journey. On February 10, 2007 Obama announced that he would run as a democratic candidate for the US presidency. There were many steps he needed to take before he made that action, I would like to talk about what Barack Obama was thinking at the beginning of his presidential journey.
Long before that he would have probably had the following self talk conversation . . .
I want to serve my country
I am the 44th President of US
What actions steps do I need to take to make that happen
I know this because ALL successful people need to have internal thoughts of success to achieve success in any area of your life.
In order for him to have these success thoughts he needed to have the core beliefs that he was . . .
I am worthy of success
Success is possible
I am prepared and willing to work hard and smart
With the right beliefs and thoughts you now have the motivation to take action. By taking action to move you forward towards a goal you become more confident that achievement is possible which strengthens your beliefs and thoughts. Not everyone can be president of America but we can all use our beliefs and thoughts to motivate us to action.
What are you thinking about right now? Are they empowering you or bringing you down?
If your thoughts are not moving you forward CHANGE them quickly. We don’t walk backwards and in order to achieve success we must focus where we want to go and make steps toward it.
“What we think, we become. ” Buddha
“The ancestor of every action is a thought.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your comments and thoughts are always appreciated.
