Never give up!
Posted May 24, 2010on:
Billions of dollar in debt, USD 975 million in personal guarantee, people telling you that you are a failure, Wall Street Journal & New York Times running stories against one person, both on the same day – What happens next?
The person in the middle of storm gives it all a turn around – The Guinness Book of World Record terms the turn around as the biggest financial turn around for the history. Who is the person who made it happen?
Meet Mr. Donald Trump
He explains his situation as: “That was the lowest moment I had yet encountered in my life. The phones in my office were even quiet, which had never happened before. In fact, I suddenly had a lot of quiet time to think, and I reviewed the situation objectively”.
How did the turnaround happen?
What was the turning point?
Simple answer: Attitude!
First lesson: Focus on solutions and not on the problem.
Here are a few coaching tips from the book: “Trump – Never Give up; How I turned my biggest challenges into success”by Donald Trump (written with Meridith Mclever)
A lot of success depends on how well you can handle pressure. It may seem like a hard fact of life, and it is, but there is something you can do about it. Envision yourself as victorious. Focus on that instead of your nagging doubts and fears. Focus on objective insights and solutions. Pressure can diminish and disappear when you clobber it with a positive attitude. Even if you don’t feel indomitable, act that way for a while. It helps!
In summary: Strive for wholeness, believe in yourself, keep your momentum at full throttle, and be strong and tough in your resilience. Don’t expect anything less than that from yourself, and I can assure you that success will become a permanent situation for you, even when your external circumstances may not show it.
Never Give Up!
