I’ve never met Donald Trump, but I’ve been in the same building with him once,
if that counts for anything. But, I have learned some valuable lessons from him in the past few days
that I’d like to share with you. But first, because it’s likely you’re still reading this post now, I’d like
to say publicly that his show Celebrity Apprentice has a flaw. He is firing people every week that he
hasn’t hired yet. Whazzup with that?
I mean, the whole point to being a contestant is to get hired, right?
Ok, now that is out of the way. Here’s my main takeaway from his book, “Think Big and Kick
Focus on the solution, not on the problem.
That is game changing, and it has been for me, these past few weeks. I realized that I had
been focusing on problems. This is not very productive and just keeps you pissed off and
frustrated. I’m a big believer in the “what you focus attention to grows” theory. So, that
was a lot of energy misdirected.
In the past month I’ve been focusing ONLY on solutions. What a difference. My mind
is now coming up with strategies to solve my problems. I see opportunities where none
existed before. I’ve learned to believe that there is ALWAYS a way to make what you
Just don’t give up and always keep looking for solutions.
Donald J. Trump – thank you, you’re hired as one of my new mindset mentors.
