Barack Obama: 5 Lessons You Taught Me
Half way through the week & it’s #WednesdayWisdom
This post has been a long long time coming, in fact when I started blogging in April 2016, I promised that I would do a post on Barack Obama. Now with the Medal of Freedom Ceremony & Trump being elected as the 45th US President. It feels only fair I feature my favorite President of all.
I know, I know Bold statement. Well I’m a pretty bold guy.
“But how can you say that when there have been so many Greats before him?”~ You may ask.
Some that fought wars, some that won wars, some that ended slavery, some that built economic hubs of prosperity. Well it’s simple really, even in the face of all of that Barack Obama comes out ahead because he’s been President within my life time and I got to experience his awesomeness as I grew up.
He’s the first black president
His speeches are both uplifting and extraordinarily invigorating as opposed to every other politician I’ve ever heard talking…
Barack Hussein Obama II
(US i/bəˈrɑːk huːˈseɪn oʊˈbɑːmə/; born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office and the first president born outside the continental United States. In foreign policy, Obama ended U.S. military involvement in the Iraq War
5 Lessons Barack Obama Taught Me
What society finds acceptable is constantly changing and reshaping. By that I mean decades ago, free black men were almost unheard of and slavery ran rampant. NOW, slavery is unacceptable and free black men are everywhere. Do you see what I mean? What is Right will always be Right. Whether now or 20 years from now.
Another perspective is that kids are our future, they are entirely the immense potential our species has. So in saying that, why would we teach them anything else but that Everyone is Equal. In every which way that matters. Race, skin color, sexual orientation, culture.
Hobbledegoop! It’s much easier for someone to judge your life than their own and I’m sure many of us are guilty of this too. Sometimes it just flows through us.
When in reality, No One and I mean NO ONE can chose your path but You.
If you read Barack’s background you would never in a million years say that he would end up as president, in fact you’d probably laugh, hysterically. but just look at the guy now. Even though the commonality in society wouldn’t even believe he could get a law degree let alone become president. We determine our destiny, end of story.
I mean if you look back at the previous presidents, even Trump…they all have similiar characteristics you know… That serious face, all business no play. It’s like they are all about the next mission…
And here this dude comes along and blows the benchmark right out the water!
Not only does he do the Superman pose which earns him my Superman fandom Salute!
The guy dances on the Ellen Degeneres show
Then at the Correspondents dinner he ends his speech with two words that No Doubt Broke the internet: “Obama Out”
and Literally Dropped the Mic!!!!
I am simply in awe of how amazing Obama is.

The wise Obama-sensei instead talked about how WE can change things for the better. He knew the best successes are achieved by team work and in the support of others.
Because when we help others get what they want we automatically get what we want.
