The current #1 best selling book in America is called “What Happened” and is written by Hillary Clinton. From what I’ve seen the blame is metered out liberally among other people, situations and countries. At the end of the day I am much more interested in “What Didn’t Happen.” If this blog upsets you or you need counseling don’t write me here.
The first question that must be answered is what happened. It makes zero difference if you like, love, hate or detest Donald Trump, it’s clear he worked his ass off. The Saturday before the election he started in Florida with a rally, flew to Ohio for a rally, then flew to Reno for a rally (Had a man with a gun scare that turned out to be false) and then flew to Denver for a rally. That was all in the same day! That same day Hillary started in Florida with a rally that was cut short by heavy rain (Climate change I will assume) and that completed the day. No other events scheduled.
On the Sunday before the election trump visited Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania and Virginia. This was the same day that Hillary had a small rally in Northeastern Ohio with LeBron James who encouraged everyone to get out and vote. Trump visited 5 states and held large rallies and Hillary was able to get in 1 rally in 2 days before the election. Hillary also noted she napped while election results were coming in on the most important night of her life. Could you have slept?
The reality is Trump outworked Hillary at every turn and won as a result. He took his message to the people who could say yes or no, understood the rules of the game (The Electoral College) and won in a convincing manner. I understand a few of you may unsubscribe from my newsletter as a result of this. So be it. The message here isn’t that one candidate is better than the other… The message is that busting your ass and not quitting still matters and will always matter. Now Tweet that to your bestie!
By the way… “What Didn’t Happen” is America didn’t reward lack of work, lack of effort, lack of ethics and lack of focus on the intended result. I pray that will NEVER be rewarded!
My name is Steven Clauson. I coach people to get where they want to be. The best part is the people I coach are typically already taking action, getting results and still think about what actions to take to make an even greater impact and aren’t afraid of asking for help. What help do you need? What actions have you taken? I know the one’s with a plan and implementing their plan lead the pack. Planning, preparing to win and taking the appropriate action means you hear the word “YES” more than ever. Are you one of the few willing to take action, do what’s required and play full out to hear the word yes more often? People accustomed to the word “YES” are winners on the field playing full out and dominating. For these people results matter. Tired of results less than you know you can produce?
