Never Judge a Book by it's Cover

Updated on February 12, 2019

I think we can all agree that this man is the most controversial person of the past couple of years, his views have made people love or hate him. To simply use that hatred or love to brush aside this book is doing a disservice to the rules of success that Trump lays out. Here are the best points Trump gets across.

1.Think Big

“If you're going to be If you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big”, an obsession with perfecting your craft will truly make the difference between you being good or great.

2. Protect the downside, and the upside will take care of itself

This means to consider the consequences of your actions. It’s better to make small calculated risk than to try and pull out a hail mary and lose everything.

3.Maximize your options

This means adapting to your environment, if you're attached towards a situation turning out a certain way nine times out of ten it will fail. Always have a plan B.

4.Know your market

Don’t spend all day reading a textbook about Egyptian history, go to Egypt and immerse yourself in the culture. The first-hand experience will always be better than a survey or study.

5. Use your leverage, and never seem desperate

Leverage is having power in the conversation. You have something someone else needs. If you act desperate for someone else you will lead yourself on into making a worse decision for yourself. The best position is being able to walk away and mean it.

6.Enhance your location

You shouldn’t transfer somewhere else where you may feel in the moment that it’s a better option. It will have the same problems, the same disposition, the same attitudes, and you will have to prove yourself. Prove yourself here.

7. Get the word out and create interest and excitement

It’s better to be strange and out there than be average and forgotten. Embrace your differences, embrace why you're the person you are today because one day you can leave a mark.

8. Fight back

When people treat you badly or exploit you for their own self-benefits you always need to stand taller and fight back. Don’t take crap from anybody.

9.Deliver the goods

If you promise to go skydiving with your friends tomorrow, you will be going skydiving tomorrow. If you act fickle and ambivalent towards what you want to accomplish people will become aware and believe less when you act boldly.

10.Contain the costs

Always try and maximize profits in everything in life. If a situation becomes too overbearing its time to let it go


Most Importantly Have Fun

You only have one life to live. If you're not doing something that excites you, something that makes you never want to sleep again because you're having too much fun doing it then you're not truly alive. You're working to live.

Whether we are planning on becoming the next CEO or up incoming rapper we can all use these success principles to win. Even if you don’t think Trump’s rules are good then just take a look at what it has produced. A man with a small loan of a million dollars to a multi millionaire business tycoon who has a empire that has had many ups and downs but ultimately led to him being the 45th president of the United States.

      He did use a lot of the same principles to win. I tried to keep this article away from politics since my other articles are just a melting pot of controversial opinions.

      It sounds like he successfully employed the advice in his book to win the republican primary, and then the presidency. Thanks for the thumbnail, I read the book years ago, and this summary was all I needed to remember.

      Thanks
