Transcript

  • 1. Part 1: Inspring People
  • 2. Abraham Lincoln, as president of the USA, not only changed the history of the states, but also had an influence on the history of the Western World. Although he had only approximately twelve months of schooling and no degree or diploma, he had very good leadership qualities. He inspired not only his people but left a significant legacy. He did not limit himself in achieving his dreams. Brought to you by: www.dream-it-plan-it-do-it.com
  • 3. Lincoln went on to become America’s 16th President. Although a civil war broke out in the beginning of Lincoln’s term, he continued his fight against slavery. As a president he showed kindness and compassion to all citizens, including slaves. In 1863 the Emancipation Proclamation paved the way for the 13th Amendment and abolishment of slavery. When Lincoln came under fire for standing up for the slaves he would use a unique style of leadership – he told stories that explained his actions. Abraham Lincoln was President until 1865 when he was assassinated by John Wilkes Botha as part of a political statement against Lincoln’s compassion for slaves. The civil war later became a vital point in American history, as following the victory of the Union in the war and the Emancipation Proclamation the Union held the right to seize any property owned by citizens rebelling against the anti- slavery laws.

  • 4. The greatest lesson that can be learnt from Abraham Lincoln is that he achieved greatness in two fields – Law and Politics – regardless of his formal education. He did not let his lack of qualifications dictate his future. Lincoln also put vast amounts of time, effort and emotion into working towards the greater good of others, changing American history. He will forever be remembered as a role model for future generations; honoured for perseverance and phenomenal leadership. Brought to you by: www.dream-it-plan-it-do-it.com
  • 5. After Abraham Lincoln moved to Illinois, he first took on practical jobs: such as being a store man, surveyor and a postmaster. Although these were practical jobs; they were all leadership roles. From this time Lincoln’s leadership qualities started shining through. When he was rejected by a law school, Lincoln decided to study law in his spare time. He then went on to become an incredibly successful attorney. He showed perseverance in obtaining his status as a lawyer. Brought to you by: www.dream-it-plan-it-do-it.com
  • 6. Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin in Kentucky, USA to two poverty stricken parents – Nancy and Thomas. When he was 11 years old he lost his mother and, just one year later, his father remarried. Lincoln and his father clashed constantly as Lincoln wanted to spend his days reading and educating himself, whilst his father wanted him to tend fields, as Thomas enjoyed doing.

  • 7. A few Inspirational quotes from one of the most inspiring people: “My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.” “I'm a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn't have the heart to let him down.” “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” “My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” Brought to you by: www.dream-it-plan-it-do-it.com
  • 8. “I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.” "Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.“ "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” “That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.” Abraham Lincoln References: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln#Assassination www.civilwar.org www.sparknotes.com http://millercenter.org/ http://betterlifecoachingblog.com/ Brought to you by: www.dream-it-plan-it-do-it.com
