Lessons on Power #3

Learn to accept defeat. I have seen many bright careers destroyed by the inability to accept defeat whether its electoral, whether it’s not being considered for an appointment you felt you where best suited for or given to someone who knows or does less than you. If you obtain public office, don’t build your personality or your status around it. Positions are temporary. the worst time for a politician that I have observed is the day after he’s been appointed because that’s the day he’s phone starts to ring and he’s being reminded by everybody whether they remember how hard they worked and what positions that they deserve. Don’t be that person.” H.E Madame Monica Geingos
