What can you learn from Donald Trump?

Yes, I believe he is an asshole and unfit to lead anything. BUT! BUT!

Every person is superior to us in some ways.

Even if you don’t like someone, you can learn something from him.

And we have to admit that Donald Trump has some amazing qualities we should all try to grow and develop.

It’s been troubling me to think how can such a person come so high.

This is my first try to find the skills that make Donald Trump successful in the arena of money and power.

I noticed 3 major traits that we should all learn from him.

I don’t watch the news much and I haven’t watched his TV show so there are probably more. But from my limited observations, these 3 are the most important ones. Would love to hear what you think.

Yes, you could turn every sentence I write into something bad when looking at the caricature of Donald Trump. But for this post, I would only like you to acknowledge the positive.

Say “Yes, that’s true, I will try to do that more in my life” and not “Yes, but….”

The effect this has on your feelings will be different.

It will be positive and uplifting. and show you the path towards a better, richer future.

Take something good from the Donald and leave everything else behind.

We will not learn the skills of self-reflection and human decency here.

But there are definitely other valuable skills for your life right here.

1. Unwavering faith in himself

This is why he gets shit done. He believes he can do it. Always.

And this gives him a fighting chance!

Without this quality we, human beings, stand no chance of accomplishing our goals.

You cannot make something real if you don’t believe in it. If you don’t have faith.

Think about Henry Ford’s quote:


“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

Donald Trump is an amazing example of this.

2. Vision of the future

It is said that Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton hotels, never looked at the property from what it is now but always in what it could be. 

And that he imagined himself operating a hotel long before he ever bought one.


“To achieve big things you have to have big dreams”

Donald definitely has this amazing quality.

He always saw something that was not there yet. He saw what it could be.

And then continued with his faith in himself that he can make it happen.

It has never been done before, but he has enough trust in himself that he can do it.

Like it or not, this is a mindset of a champion.

It’s hard for me to not start with the negatives.

Probably for you as well. But let’s stay strong together here and just be inspired.

3. Zero negativity

I saw it in one interview when a reporter started talking about negative things, Donald stood up and left.

If we think about our current environment of fear and negativity on the news and in our conversations every day.

What would happen to your life if you put the energy you are now putting into watching the news, blaming and complaining, and you would channel it to how you want your life to be? How you want to feel?

What if you didn’t allow for anyone or anything to put down anything that inspires you?

The things that energize you.

This is an amazing and empowering feeling. Donald has it. He wants solutions and not people putting down things he is creating.

Imagine if you are a child and your mother finds faults in every drawing you make. 

You would stop drawing quickly and end up thinking you are bad at it.

But what if you had the security to say to your mother that you don’t want her negative opinions anymore and would rather hear some encouragement?

You would probably continue to draw and become better and better at it. No negative emotions, just pure energy of possibility.

What a different way of living life than we know it.

Donald doesn’t allow for anyone to put him down. And this gives him the mental capacity to develop his vision.


These are my biggest 3 observations.

And even if it’s hard to find kind words about him, as someone committed to learning and growth, I know I have the most work to do exactly where I see “other people’s faults.”

Because they are my “faults”, not theirs.

What do you think?

What positive traits did I miss?
