Executive Coach's Observations for President Obama

Second in a series of observations...

2. Lead with Abundance, not Scarcity: “In the end ... that's what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism, or do we participate in a politics of hope?"

People are scared by the economy because they don’t understand it and can’t control what appears to them as a runaway train. When that kind of fear happens, people retract and become beings of scarcity. Hopeful people, like you, approach life as an abundant person—one willing to share and who subscribes to the philosophy of “To whom much is given, much is expected.” In short, keep hope and optimism the focus of your administration—never fear or pessimism. We’ve already seen what that produces. Racecar drivers who focus on the wall rather than the track, will probably hit the wall. In short, you will get what you focus on, so focus on optimism and abundance.
