Be successful like Donald Trump, part 3

Donald Trump

After watching Series 1 & 2 I was really looking forward to watch the third one. I find the advice that Donald gives valuable and I think it can help people become winners.

The third series of “The Apprentice” is full with more advice on the same topics. By now you will start to see certain topics repeating themselves. Donald is big on thinking big and leading with authority. This is where Donald places his focus and what has helped him to build his empire.

It is surprising that Donald refers to the same topics again and again. The candidates in the series keep doing the same mistakes. Please make sure that you do not repeat your mistakes. Learn from them and improve.

Here is the advice from Donald Trump give in the third series:

  • Perseverance – Go ahead and do not give up when things get tough.
  • Respect comes from winning – The people around you will respect you more when you show them that you are a winner.
  • Lead with authority – When you lead you must have authority
  • Never settle – Do not settle for the second best. Push for the best.
  • Instinct – Listen to your instinct.
  • Shut up and listen – You must listen and value your team’s opinion.
  • Play golf – Be social and get to know the people you deal with.
  • Go big or go home – Think of big ideas and go for them.
  • Sell your ideas – You must be able to successfully sell your ideas.
  • Know when to fold – Know when a plan is not working and cut it and move on.
  • Let nothing get in the way – When you are moving towards your goal do not let other things distract you.
  • Pulling all-nighters – Many times you need to push yourself very hard to achieve you goal.
  • Take control – Be in control of the project and not let others wander aimlessly.
  • Keep your eyes on the prize – Keep focused on your goal and go after it.

I will follow up in a future post with the advice from series 4. Till then have fun and be a winner.

Follow the practical way,
