It's hard for me to believe that it is almost November already. The best thing about that for me is that, on November 8, this election will finally be over. The bad news is that the 2020 election begins November 9. Right now, I'm so tired of hearing how bad things are, how much trouble our country is in, and how self-serving politicians are going to come in like knights on white chargers, fix everything, and magically make my life better.
Making my life better is my job. I don't want to leave that to politicians. I don't trust them enough for that. Jim Rohn once said, "If you don't have a plan for you life, you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much!" I believe that even more after watching this election--the most hateful, divisive election I have ever witnessed.
So I vote to focus on my own vision and goals. I vote for finding ways I can be of service. As Tony says, what's wrong is always available. So is what's right. I choose to focus on what's right. I choose not to fall victim to the mudslinging and name calling and allegations. I choose not to buy into the doom and gloom handed out by politicians whose only intent is to get elected. I choose to focus on how I can create the best life possible for myself and my family, with the resources I have.
That's my vote. I hope, regardless of the outcome of this particular election, that will be your vote as well.
