ne of the benefits of working with Donald is observing him in action in real life. Over the years, I have gotten to know

O the real Donald, as well as the “celebrity Donald.” I have found he is the same person . . . In fact he is actually bigger in real life than his celebrity.
p<>{color:#000;}. Working with him, I have observed him thinking, then listened to his thoughts become words and his thoughts and words become actions. In most instances, his thoughts, words, and actions are the same. Maybe this is why he is direct and blunt. He can be blunt be- cause his thoughts, words, and actions are integrated, congruent, operating as one.

Many of us know people who are, actually, three people.They think one thing, say something else, and do not do what they say or think. I have observed these kinds of people, who are really three people, achieve limited success and live conflicted lives.

In early 1980, I lost my first major business. Losing everything was as horrible as you might expect. Losing everything gave power to the loser in me. Worst of all, I had lost confidence in myself. I knew what I had to do, but for some reason I simply did not do what I knew I had to do. My personal battle between 1980 and

1990 was to gain power over my own thoughts. To regain power

over my thoughts, I began reading and listening to great thoughts from great people . . . and then made those thoughts mine. Slowly but surely, my business life began to turn and I began to win again.

In 1987, just after the stock market crashed, I came across Don- ald’s book The Art of the Deal. My wife Kim and I put aside every- thing we were doing and read that book. As the world was crashing down, we had the opportunity and benefit—through Donald’s thoughts, words, and actions—to see the world of busi- ness. By 1994, Kim and I were financially free. In our quiet mo- ments, Kim and I often discuss how Donald’s book inspired us to go on, even though the world was crashing down around us.

In 1997, reading his book The Art of the Comeback verified for us that we were following the thoughts of a great man.Very few people will talk publicly, much less write, about their mistakes, their lessons, and their comeback.

In 2004, Kim and I met Donald for the first time. Obviously he did not know who we were, yet he was extremely gracious and we thanked him for sharing his thoughts through his books.

In late 2006, Donald and I published our book, Why We WantYou To Be Rich[_Two Men, One Message. Fueled by our shared concern for people and our desire to teach, Donald and I collab- orated on this book, predicting much of the financial chaos 2008 would bring.

It is an honor to write this Foreword for his book, Think Like a Champion, because teaching me to think like a champion is the gift Donald has given my wife and me . . . a gift he shares with the world . . . a gift more valuable than money.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

 

 

 

ver the years, I have watched many people aspire to success. I am one of them, and while I haven’t peaked yet, I’ve had

O a good share of success already. So I’m often asked what my “se- c rets” to success are. I don’t think they’re secrets, but every one of us needs to have a formula that works for him or her personally.
p<>{color:#000;}. This collection of writing is an indication of the thought process that I believe can lead people to success. It has worked for me. It’s another side to my personality—the more reflective side that reveals my sources and how I apply them to the big picture that is life. The persona you so often see via the world media is someone who is outgoing, confident, sometimes brash—but hon- est. One reason people like me is because I’m blunt. One reason people don’t like me is because I’m blunt. But one reason I’m suc- cessful is that I can cut through nonsense quickly and get to the core of things.

Think Like a Champion is an example of that approach to life and business. I take a topic, think about it, dissect it, and put it back into a formula that becomes what I believe is solid advice. I have always relished putting time and energy into digging below the surface of a problem and coming up with a unique and ef- fective answer.

While I was in school, my father, Fred C.Trump, would send inspirational quotes to me every week. Many of them were about

leadership, how to be a champion in life. I learned a lot from them and I still refer to them, so they are included here for you.

I was fortunate to have a mentor in my life like my father, and I hope these writings will prove to be helpful to you. I would like to dedicate this book to the memory of my father and all that he taught me. I would hope that sharing these thoughts with you will provide you with guidance as well as inspiration.

Barack Obama Election Ushers in a Different World

 

 

 

A fter the election in November of 2008, I was interviewed by Dominic Carter of New York 1, on his program called “Inside City Hall.” NewYork 1 is an all-news program that is pop- ular in New York City, and Dominic Carter is someone for whom I have a great deal of respect. He should have a national show, but then NewYork would miss out on his full-time and dynamic pres- ence here. He describes me as “a man not known for keeping his
p<>{color:#000;}. opinions to himself,” and we covered some interesting topics.

Dominic asked about the election and I was honest about it. McCain was in an almost impossible situation. Bush had been so incompetent that any Republican would have a hard time unless they could bring back Eisenhower. Bush was a disaster for the country as well as for the Republican Party.

Then he asked me about Barack Obama. I told him that

Barack will need to be a great president because we’re in serious

trouble as a country. It hasn’t been this way since 1929. So he doesn’t have much choice—he will simply have to be great, which he has a very good chance of being.

What he has done is amazing. The fact that he accomplished what he has—in one year and against great odds—is truly phe- nomenal. If someone had asked me if a black man or woman could become president, I would have said yes, but not yet. Barack Obama proved that determination combined with opportunity and intel- ligence can make things happen—and in an exceptional way.

He is not walking into an easy or enviable situation. As of Oc- tober of 2008, the U.S. government reported a $237 billion deficit. The good news is that Obama seems to be well aware of the sit- uation. His comments have led me to believe that he understands how the economy works on a comprehensive level. He has also surrounded himself with very competent people, and that’s the mark of a strong leader. I have confidence he will do his best, and we have someone who is serious about resolving the problems we have and will be facing in the future.To me that is very good news.

After 9/11, this country received a lot of compassion from countries and people around the world.Within a short amount of time, however, we were hated. How did that happen? We had no dialogue with other countries because they just plain hated us. What’s different today is that we have a new chance, a new begin- ning. The world is excited about Barack Obama and the new United States. Let’s keep it that way.

Essays, Assets, and

Stephen King

 

 

 

 

I n the New York Times Book Review of September 30, 2007, is an essay by Stephen King on the short story. As you most likely know, Stephen King is the prolific and very successful author of sixty books and nearly 400 short stories. One of his short stories won the O. Henry Prize in 1996. His point in his essay is that in reviewing the state of the short story today, he notes that they seem to “feel show-offy, and written for editors and teachers, rather than for readers.” This is an insightful comment and it got me to thinking about why we write and who we think our audience
p<>{color:#000;}. might be.

I like essays and so I can relate to the short story, although the short story is a fictional prose tale. The short story is not an easy medium, as any writer will tell you, because you must be concise. Essays are a bit the same, because they are succinct and specific. If you read Stephen King’s essay, you will see that he gets his point across beautifully in the span of one page.

I may not be Stephen King, but I can appreciate what he does. You may not be a mogul yet, but I think you can appreciate the complexities of what I have to deal with daily. Stephen King is pointing out that the market for short stories is limited these days, so the writers of short stories seem more determined than ever to make their mark—but on the editors who might be able to get their story into print, not the reader, who might be expecting to be entertained. A valid consideration, I will say. We all have target markets and the demographics are important, no matter what your industry may be.

In short, Stephen King is astutely acknowledging that the short story writers of today are protecting their assets by targeting their writing to the people who will most likely be able to get it into print. Their second consideration is the reader because, unless they consider the editor first, their reader will have no chance of ever seeing the short story, no matter how wonderful or how mediocre it might be. It’s an intelligent approach, but I can understand the point Mr. King is making when he laments the fact that the sto- ries seem prefabricated to appeal to a certain audience—editors and teachers, in this case.

When I build a residential building, for example, I will first consider who will be living there. I study the demographics, as does any business person, whether you’re in advertising or resi- dential property management. To get the message out, I will also have to appeal to the people who will choose—or not choose— to promote the building. By now, my name is big enough and equated with the gold standard to the extent that I don’t have to say too much about it. The name Trump is a guarantee of a cer- tain level of quality. Stephen King mentions that short stories seem to be delegated to the bottom shelf at the bookstores. He says the American short story is alive but not well these days. The main reason seems to be that the target market is simply dwindling.
