It was amazing discussing American politics with a 72year old African American Uber driver. He relocated from Washington DC 1972 and he is a Democrat. He said, “If I were to have my way, I will take some good virtues from Democrats and some I like from Republican and start a new party. I hate abortion and do not believe in the LGBT movement of my party”.
One key thing we both agreed is that you do not need to like his personality but give the man his credit. The economy is working! Jobs are back and companies are coming back. His method is bullish but if he continues this way, he will be re-elected. My 72year old friend said to me, “Americans will re-elect Trump if they have jobs”.
The morals of this discussion are:
1) Africa needs presidents who may not be politically correct but can generate job and economic growth. Most African leaders are beggars who just do not know how to grow their country economy. Like citizens who are relying on the government so do African leaders rely on western leaders for a handout.
2) Life answers to result. Stories will not feed people. Nice words will not! People are tired of those who sweet talk them without tangible results. I was sharing with a man recently who I needed to become our consultant in one of the companies I own. I said to him; I need someone who has done it before, who can be “hand on” and not dropping templates that will not work themselves.
Change must be driven and I need a consultant who will drive the change they are recommending. The result will always terminate insult. Like him or hate him, Donald Trump result is giving his administration credibility by the day.
Here this clearly, in your life, let go of the sentiment and go for the result. Go for a change. Hang around people who truly have the capacity to change your situation and not empty words. Invest in getting result daily. The year is about to end. May is over! June is here! It is half of the year already guys! What result have you gotten this year? Enough of looking for who and what to blame.
You owe it to yourself to achieve something this year. You owe yourself greatness this year. Everyone is not struggling. What is that intentional decision to get the result in your life?
