Become President of Your Life

As most of you know, I do not discuss politics. I don't post, discuss, debate, or mention. In my opinion, your political views are private. 

Yesterday, I found a great article that caught my attention. "Become President".

Not President of a company, your frat house, or the PTO. The President of your life!

I shared the article in my class this morning and of course, as always, added my own spin to it.

Here is the blog written by: Bernard Hiller from Positively Positive

When are you going to become the President of your life?

That’s right, President! 

When you behave like a President, you make choices that will move your world. Living life as Vice-President is not a strategy for a happy or successful life.

Presidents don’t focus in minor things. They focus on major things that could improve their current circumstance. They take risks and never play it safe. Presidents are leaders, not followers.

They know that they must be great communicators and are always asking for help.

You also inspire others by how you deal with your problems and obstacles. There is an authenticity that is unforgettable. You are not afraid to be unpopular. When you behave in ways that are different, you will always make others unhappy.

There is a positivity and gratefulness that is apparent because you know that what you do or say affects others. You don’t care what other people think.

Presidents live a life that will be legendary!

So what are you waiting for…

That's it. Short, to the point and dead on!!

So, I thought, everyone should take oath and repeat affirmations daily to take charge of their own lives. I recreated the Oath of Office and a few amazing quotes by Kennedy, Lincoln and Michelle Obama (Not a Pres, but she has some amazing quotes). ha

Become President of your own LIFE!! Start now!

"I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of my life, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend myself"

"I will forgive my enemies, but never forget their names" (NEVER, EVER)

"I will not pray for an easy life. I will pray to be stronger"

"I will teach our children that they are the most valuable resource and the best hope for our future"

"I promise to stay true to myself and never let anyone distract me from my goals"

"I promise to treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO"

"I promise to choose people who lift me up"

"I promise to put my feet in the right place, then stand firm"

"I promise, "And in the end, it's not the years in your life that counts, it's the life in my years"


Congratulations my friends on winning the Presidential election of your own life!!! Keep it up. You are doing a kick ass job!!

Be happy

Be healthy

Be strong
