When you get into politics for the first time, chances are you will be in for quite a shock. Politicians have a lot to do as far as adjustments in lifestyle is concerned and apparently it can go as far as changing personal philosophies. In the political world, you need to be alert and open to conflicts and interests. Much of the people around you may not always be whom they claim to be.
If you heard the phrase that politics is a dirty game then heed that warning. In politics there are no stops. People can easily pretend which makes it suitable for actors. There are a lot of bad beliefs on politics which make it ideally made for people who can handle the pressure. Just consider these things that politics has been known for:
1. Graft and Corruption
2. Power Abuse
4. Lack of Priorities
Indeed a political philosophy can be easily written. Just like a script in the movies, you need a good platform and likewise a strong personality. Being in politics for the first time will teach you how to be more public relations oriented. In politics you need this if you are to get the nod and trust of voters in your area.
Your personal philosophy is bound to change when you are in politics. Some people are made for it, while others have to adjust accordingly. So if you think you can handle both worlds of personal and professional philosophies, you are bound to get a lot of sleepless nights doing it.
