Developing a Republican Farm Team . . .

It is never too early for you to begin running for public office.

Begin best in doing the basics by using time instead of money as the tool to become known: obtain Friends and Followers on Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn;  join and become active in your local Republican Party;  join a Republican Club; attend political events and volunteer;  collect business cards for your database; network.

The next best step is to actually run for office.  Filing fees are usually not substantial. Then pace yourself.  Don’t burn out.  Continue however long it takes until you are elected to your selected office.

Your reaction might be: “I do not have enough money to begin.”  See above.

A second might be: “but I will probably lose”.  If you cannot handle losing you should never run.  Life is about losing and becoming stronger because of it. “fortuna favet fortibus”.  Success is the product of failures—because experiencing it will make you smarter and tougher in your next attempt.

And a third might be: “but I will become known as the perennial candidate”. This likely is true only if you run without some good personal qualities, In any event, you can probably run three times without a problem.  More if they are spaced.  And even more if for different offices.  Working hard at it you will be respected for your efforts.

You might not have the confidence to commit early on as a future candidate.  You would be putting yourself out there.  But think about it:  How many of you would have done a better job than President Obama or for that matter almost any Democrat.  If you did nothing you would be better then them.  And given that fact, any conservative with good personal qualities should be encouraged to run for any office.  Particularly one that now has a Democrat incumbent.

 

There are many individuals who are a natural fit for starting early and finishing strong.  Members of Young Republican Clubsbusiness owners,  veterans, and athletes are great candidates.

Young Republicans because they have their life ahead of them and with good personal qualities, passion and perseverance, over time they will almost certainly succeed.

Business owners because they know that success often does not come quickly in business so they are prepared in thinking long term when running for office

Veterans because they are instilled with a love for America and a willingness to sacrifice for it. And those who have had combat experience have learned to handle failure of the worst personal kind.

Athletes because they have the ability to shake off a failure by immediately putting it out of their mind and focusing on a goal.  Invaluable in a political race.

Others of whatever stripe because of their good personal qualities irrespective of everything else.

 

In the bestseller Grit, Angela Duckworth studied why individuals are successful. The Grit Scale she developed for her study at West Point might be helpful to you in seeing what qualities are important in a run for public office or in anything else.  Access it here.
