What to Expect When You're Electing

2016-11-04-1478262311-5669291-HuffPostPicforElectionPost.jpgI felt uncomfortable each time I sat down to write about this election.

When I write and speak my goal is to produce content that uncovers a sense of momentum in my audience so that they can get closer to where they want to be in their lives.

So I waited to write about this topic because sometimes it's good to sit back and sit with what makes you uncomfortable.

I learned the more we talk, the more we may get wrong. The more we listen, the more we may learn.

We can remember we live in a big, beautiful country people fight to get to, people fight to stay in and people fight to defend. We can remember we've been through wars much worse than this war of words.

The possibilities inside the heart of every American are infinite.

This campaign has offered us gifts in the discomfort. These gifts can lead us to change the way we communicate in the future as long as we see the intrinsic value in our own role as communicators.

Get back to sharing what you love about your life and what you want to do with it. Enlist others in your proactive messages.

Being uncomfortable is a powerful position from which to move forward. Being uncomfortable usually introduces us to something new about ourselves. We can be positioned to see it or we can miss it.

The most important thing you can study over the long term is your ability to communicate with yourself and others.

From here, you can create trust and faith to be shared.

Increase and eventually multiply the positive thoughts you have about your life and your plans to share it with the people you love.

Elect to drive your ideas, your gifts and your love forward. Elect to have a life where experiences are richer and realizations come faster.

I'm comfortable with that.
