Barack Obama, a young man raised by a single parent who rose up to become a United States Senator and Presedential hopeful. Politics aside, you have to admit this guy is impressive. This week he’s being blasted in the media for telling the truth about the bitter mindset of middle class thinkers. Obama’s being called an ‘elitest’ because the masses are afraid of the truth. I can imagine the closed door conversations among Washington insiders about this one. It’s one of those things ever thinking person knows is true, but you can’t say when you’re running for President. Obama’s only mistake was verbalizing his thoughts, which are tough for the masses to swallow. This is the same mental toughness lesson as the distinction between Middle class thinkers and World class thinkers. There’s obviously a difference in the way super successful people think, yet it doesn’t make them better than anyone else. Is it elitest to say some people are better thinkers than others? Is it elitest to say Harvard is a better college than South Alabama? Is it elitest to say people who are thin and healthy have better diet and exercise habits than people who are fat and out of shape? It’s not elistism, it’s objective reality! I’ll look forward to your thoughts on this one. Steve Siebold (6:10 )
