For many Americans, trying to decide who to vote for during our upcoming Presidential election is proving harder than expected.
The reason for this can come from many angles, but in my coaching practice I'm seeing the concept of "peer pressure" in a whole new light.
People are feeling the need to be accepted for their choice of Presidential candidate.
........."You wouldn't vote for an African American President would you? How could you vote for a Vice Presidential candidate who is a woman, which means if her running mate is incapacitated, she would be President!".....And the list goes on and on.
This year is unprecedented in regards to the race, so it becomes crucial that we vote with our heads, hearts and intuition all as one.
I'm encouraging clients to read 1 article per day about each candidate written in a supportive form.
I'm encouraging this move so that they have a true understanding of what the candidates platforms really are , not believing it coming second handed from someone who is skewing the information.
Then, regardless if your family, friends, cousins or co-workers are pushing you to vote in a certain way...slow down. Think for yourself. Get quiet for 10-15 minutes and make the decision to vote for your candidate based on information and intuition. Not race or gender.
Slow Down. Vote with confidence...even if it goes against your past voting practices. Even if it goes against who you thought you would vote for before you read this blog.
