15 Things you should learn from the U.S Elections
I know the Inaugurations have come and gone but this post has some life’s lessons we need to start imbibing. Trump’s win came as a shock but time has not made it any better. I really hope Americans can give him the space to breathe even if it for four years. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that hate, prejudice and fear will not be characteristics of this administration.
Here are 15 things you should take away:
1. Social media is different from the outside world. In serious matters, take what you read with a pinch of salt until it can be confirmed.
2. Not all those who cheer you will be willing to stand by you.
3. Don’t assume you have the backing of anybody. Like President-Elect Donald Trump did, trust no one, including your wife.
4. When you enter a competition that requires voting, prepare your mind for the worst. Most times, the worst happens.
5. Emotions are fickle things. Support can be bought.
6. The human mind changes faster than the speed of light. Be prepared.
7. “Na my guy” cases exist but most times when the going gets tough, you will answer your surname.
8. No matter your past, you can still have a promising future.
9. It is alright to stand alone. Doesn’t matter if the chances don’t look good. Persistence and confidence almost gets you to your destination.
10. The internet never forgets. Anything you say or do will be used against you somehow, somewhere, someday.
11. You do not need soothsayers. Connect to the source and grind your hustle.
12. Don’t let people’s expectations of you slow you down or change you. If you are an asshole, be an asshole to the end. People unconsciously lean towards those who are honest about themselves and the way they see things, irrespective of what is being said.
13. Politics will give you high blood pressure. Learn how to survive irrespective of the government in power.
14. Make yourself the number one person in your life. Every other person is already number one in their lives.
15. Failure is not the end. It is the beginning of a new phase.
