Life Lessons We Can Learn from Barack Obama
The vibrant personality of America has left behind many life lessons for all us to be a better being. Power, position, and humbleness are rarely seen together and Mr. Obama is a perfect example of this togetherness.
He showed, how we can be gracious even in the face of defeat. How we can win over our greatest enemy, not only politically but even in the life course.
Goodness influence the power:
See yourself as the person, not as the position. Success should never influence the goodness in your heart. You will lose respect if you will see yourself superior to others.
He endured so much hate during the course of his presidency, but he never missed a beat and always displayed love and kindness to others. He draws hopes from his grassroots.
Let path choose you:
At some point, if you don’t know what option is best for you, just walk one by one step instead of seeing destination. Let your dreams choose you. It doesn’t mean that one should not be ambitious. It only means to allow your skills and talent to find your future.
Don’t go under pressure while choosing a career. Patience plays a great role amid this, be patient and go for the rightful things.

See the aspects that are beyond the thoughts of average people. This is the philosophy Mr. Obama followed in his life.
The most common thing in almost all successful people is ‘being a good reader and fond of books.

So, whenever you feel stressed more than required, just pick favorite music list to play or watch movies, play games or do whatever that engages your mind and refreshes your mood.
In his 10 years tenure of the presidency, media has rarely captured him tensed.
Consider ‘we’ instead of ‘I’:
Words are the complete reflexion of your thoughts. If you have heard the speech of Obama, you must have noticed that he always use ‘we’ rather ‘I’. We always spread a feeling of togetherness. Whereas ‘I’ spread a sense of arrogance and selfishness.
Communication is an art that Mr. Obama teaches us very well. Obama has style to express harsh truths and core emotions. He never afraid to express his feelings.
