Despite not being successful on the first occasion in securing the Democratic nomination, after seven years of waiting, Hillary Rodham Clinton is back in her bid to become the first female president of the USA.
The last time around she met a formidable opponent, in Barrack Obama, who garnered a swathe of support amongst younger voters, securing the nomination and later going on to be president. However on this occasion, the opposition is considered to be significantly weaker and Clinton is currently well ahead in the presidential nomination polls.
Over the past seven years, Clinton has remained patient, whilst at the same time amassing a multi-million dollar fortune through a series of public speaking engagements. Since 2013, Clinton has been preparing for this election, hopping from state to state giving speeches and more recently producing a memoir to coincide for her race for president. Jeb Bush has already recognised the threat of the Clinton name with the Republicans being quick off the mark with the launch of an online ad titled “Stop Hillary”, in an effort to stop the formidable 67 year old grandmother from being elected.
Do you display the same perseverance as Hillary Rodham Clinton?
The last seven years which Clinton had to contemplate running for presidency coincided with the years of austerity in Ireland where unemployment reached 15.2% at its peak and more than 1,000 people emigrated on a weekly basis. Those, who were fortunate enough to remain in employment during these turbulent years had to display high levels of perseverance in a highly uncertain work environment.
Now, after seven years of perseverance do you have the drive to launch your “presidential bid”?
Many people have put their careers on hold during the past seven years and become risk averse towards potential career opportunities. However, with unemployment now at 10% and IBEC predicting 5.4% growth in the economy in 2015, now, like Hillary Clinton, the time is right to contemplate taking the next step in your career, learning from your setbacks and displaying the same resilience and perseverance that you displayed over the past seven years.
