…………………………………………………………………….

Keep (Your) God first.

barack-obama-hereJust as the country’s Pledge of Allegiance states that we are “One nation under God,” President Obama faithfully adds, “I am a devout Christian. It is because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would like to lead – being my brother’s and sister’s keepers, treating others as they would treat me.” Since becoming saved, Obama has belonged to Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and Evergreen Chapel in Camp David. He recognizes “the power of African-American religious tradition to spur social change” as being very inspirational to his life.

Make family a priority.

Barack ObamaWhether it’s taking his daughters out for trick or treating during the midst of an intense election campaign, vacationing annually with Michelle, Sasha, and Malia on Martha’s Vineyard, and regularly attending church together, Obama always puts quality time in with his family.

President-ObamaYou can quit smoking.

President Obama, who’s failed on several attempts to quit smoking, finally was able to kick the bad habit as of 2011. He says, “The fact is, quitting smoking is hard. Tobacco remains the leading cause of preventable early deaths in this country. We also know that the best way to prevent the health problems that come with smoking is to keep young people from starting in the first place.”

Know that beside every good man stands a good ….

Michelle Obama” was how Barack Obama described his better half on the night he became president in November 2008. Michelle, also an attorney by profession and decorated with Ivy League credentials from Princeton University and Harvard Law School, epitomizes elegance, class, style, and confidence. Since becoming First Lady, Michelle, was responsible for spearheading the Let’s Move! Campaign, an administration based initiative to combat childhood obesity and is an advocate for the LGBT. During a fund raising event hosted by Jay-Z at the 40/40 Club, President Obama joked, “Jay knows what my life is like. We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are.”

Find time for recreation after a hard day.

In addition to putting long hours in at the Oval Office, Obama also finds time for pick-up games of basketball on the White House court for recreation, exercise, and just pure love for the sport. In addition to hoop, the president also enjoys watching the Chicago White Sox play, and private, romantic date nights with the First Lady.

Be enlightened by reading regularly.

1248072342748-barack obamaPresident Obama is an avid reader and voracious consumer of the news. He begins each day by reading the major daily newspapers, which include the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times. During the day, the president reads The Economist and The New Yorker magazines. Also very digitally savvy, Bam accesses most of this material from his iPad and logs onto Twitter and various blogs. He lists Songs of Solomon by Toni Morrison, Parting the Waters: America in the King Years by Taylor Branch and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson as some of his favorite literary works.

Charity starts at home.

Know the importance of a good education.

US-POLITICS-OBAMABarack attended the Punahou School, a private college preparatory institution from which he graduated high school. He later went onto Columbia University, where he majored in Political Science and earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. Obama later graduated from Harvard Law School with Magna cum laude honors and a Juris Doctor. While in law school, he first served as editor and then president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review. He has instilled this same principle in the raising of his daughters, as they presently attend the private and highly regarded, Sidwell Friends School in Bethesda, Maryland.

Polish your public speaking skills.

Obama_0c245_image_1024w1Ever since speaking at the Democratic National Convention in October 2006 and delivering a message almost as powerful as Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech, then an Illinois Senator, Obama’s popularity and promise as a presidential candidate skyrocketed. During his administration, Obama has been credited as an exceptional orator, who owns his words, makes great eye contact, an effective conversationalist, and skillfully works the audience. Experts rank him as the third best public speaking president in the modern era, only behind John F. Kennedy and Franklin D. Roosevelt, but comfortably ahead of both Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.

Own up to and correct your errors.

Barack ObamaWhile in high school and college, Obama admits that he was exposed to marijuana, alcohol, and occasionally cocaine. He said, “I’ve made some bad decisions [as a teenager]. I got high for just the opposite effect, something that could just push questions of who I was out of my mind.” After moving to New York to attend Columbia, Barack put his drug experimentation days well behind him.
