Recently I was at my children’s school for their assembly. Before they introduced the elected Student Representative Council (SRC) members for 2016 the principal congratulated all who nominated. He congratulated all the students who had put their names forward. It takes guts to put yourself out their.
It does take guts, it does take courage. People nominate themselves for representative roles for the most part to make a positive difference in the community. When people nominate for election they are opening up themselves to the community. They are saying that I want to make a difference and then it is up to the community to support them or not.
In the end most nominees do not get elected in elections, however they should be congratulated for their efforts in making a difference. Their nomination has ensured that democracy works. So remember that in a democracy people that put themselves forward for election have courage and are wanting to make a positive difference.
May your passions drive you and your dreams lead you to fulfilling your life’s destiny.
