“Why post on Trump? Because he is in a position of power. Because leadership has been expounded on by Napoleon Hill and others. He is, as we all our, subject to examination as a role model and whether he is a good leader or not. Emotions can run high. I attempt to be fair.
There are some things I like about Trump, which I wrote about while he was a candidate, that can be useful to adopt. There are things about Trump which, in the correct context, can be useful. There are things about Trump that would best be avoided, too. Get it?
Napoleon Hill studied 520 of the wealthiest people during his lifetime, plus thousands more. Those successful and not. He shared his findings in numerous books. The most popular, of course, Think And Grow Rich. He wrote much on leadership. He wrote on wealth.
You Can Be Do And Have Anything You Want – Focus
Near the end of his life he pointed out of the 520 and their families only one person seemed to have a decent, balanced life. The rest had addictions, suicides, mental illness and sickness due to being out of balance in their pursuits. He suggested cultivating peace of mind.
He said there was a point where too much was destructive. Obviously, ‘too much’ or ‘too little’ means different things to different people. He pointed out that children of the uber wealthy were often ‘broken’ because of their lavish, easy, upbringing.
He valued the right mindset, and the right actions, toward wealth. He felt anything not earned could be detrimental, especially big riches. Hill, nor I, am suggesting there is anything wrong with having money. It isn’t money, but the LOVE of money that’s the issue.
Be Careful What You Wish For You Might Just Get It
Greed and power can corrupt. Whether you think our ‘leaders’ and current president is, or isn’t, corrupt is up to your beliefs and values and filters. I don’t want to persuade you one way or another. I prefer to allow you to study, evaluate and conclude on your own.
Examine, in light of my blogs and works on, effective leadership. Evaluate sincerely those who would be role models for your children. Find right balance. Pursue wealth as a white-hot obsession while remaining true to the principles Hill shares and decency.
I prefer a kind world. There is abundance, and the potential for everyone on the planet to live better lives. The question is not, is there enough, but is everyone able to access? There is great disparity today. We have been warned about this for centuries.
Are You A Giver Or A Taker – Are You A Builder Or Destroyer
The Founding Fathers warned that the system we set up in America could easily be perverted if it wasn’t watched carefully and kept free of corruption. The same can be said of ourselves. Examine yourself. Use Hill’s evaluations and decide if you are on the right track.
Are you helpful or hurtful? Are you a good or great or abysmal role model? Do you contribute to the overall well-being of everyone around you or do you not? Are you finding peace or chaos? Are you living in the light, ‘vibing’ high and helping others, or a vampire?
Decide how you want to be, what you want to do and have. You can make your dreams come true. A rising tide floats the entire boat. Not everyone today wants everyone to rise. Do you? Are you a giver or a taker? Are you a builder or a destroyer? Do you help or harm?
Peace Of Mind – Help Others – Love – Peace – Abundance For All
These are important questions? It is just as important to ask about the people we elect, or whom assume leadership roles here or in any country. I prefer a world where everyone can be, do and have whatever they want as long as it doesn’t harm or prevent anyone else from doing likewise. We can build and create this kind of world if we dedicate ourselves to it. We can have this kind of life if we really want to. Discover how! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
