As you know, the ridiculous Green Party candidate, Jill Stein is demanding a recount of the vote in a few swing states where Trump eked out victories and sore loser Hillary is supporting this ginormous waste of time and money.
Hillary was outraged when Trump suggested that if she won the election he might not accept the results. She got up on her high-horse and lambasted him saying, “That is a direct threat to our democracy.”
This isn’t a political statement, by the way. It is a lesson on not going back on your word and doing what you say you’re going to do.
Listen, we’ve all said things we wish we hadn’t. We all have not followed through on promises we’ve made. It’s called being human. BUT when we do that in business or our personal lives, we need to accept responsibility for it, apologize and try to make it right.
Let’s say you promise a client something and, for one reason or another, it doesn’t materialize. You have two choices: You can come up with excuses about why what you promised didn’t happen or you can take full responsibility and go above and beyond to try and fix it.
What’s cool is the former approach will often garner more respect and deepen the relationship with your client.
Think about how much more respect and admiration Clinton would have garnered had she come out and said, “I do not support the recount effort. President-elect Trump won the election and we must rally behind him for the good of our country,”
Hey, there’s no question that is the more difficult route to take. Oftentimes doing what’s right is not easy but it still makes it right.
Lest you think, The Davemeister is getting up on his moral high-horse, I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the late, Jim Rohn, “Listen to me carefully, but don’t watch me too closely.” This stuff is easier to teach than it is do to.
Today’s message is simply a reminder for all of us.
Kick butt, make mucho DEEnero!
