Top Ten Rules for Success by Donald Trump

March 18th, 2008 by Your Financial Resource

We received our Trump University Newsletter in which it was headlined “My Top Ten Rules of Success by Donald Trump” and so upon reading it, we felt that it was imperative that our readers have a chance to also read it and comment where necessary.

At, we follow Mr. Donald Trump as he is a very successful businessman and we all have a lot to learn from his experiences.  So without any bias or further comments…

Here’s the complete top 10 list Donald Trump gives when he speaks at colleges:

1. Never give up! Do not settle for remaining in your comfort zone. Remaining complacent is a good way to get nowhere.

2. Be passionate! If you love what you’re doing, it will never seem like work.

3. Be focused! Ask yourself: What should I be thinking about right now? Shut out interference. In this age of multitasking, this is a valuable technique to acquire. 

4. Keep your momentum! Listen, apply and move forward. Do not procrastinate.

5. See yourself as victorious! That will focus you in the right direction. 

6. Be tenacious! Being stubborn can work wonders.

7. Be lucky! The old saying, “The harder I work, the luckier I get” is absolutely right on.

8. Believe in yourself! If you don’t, no one else will either. Think of yourself as a one-man or one-woman army.

9. Ask yourself: What am I pretending not to see? There may be some great opportunities right around you, even if things aren’t looking so great. Great adversity can turn into great victory.

10.  Look at the solution, not the problem. And never give up! Never never never give up. This thought deserves to be said (and remembered and applied) many times. It’s that important.

 Please tell us what you think and should you have a Top Ten Rules that we can learn from, please do let us know.

    I like all of the top ten rules and out of the lot the one I need to work most on is “being focussed” as there are so many wonderful distractions and all of them seem just as important when they pop up in my mind. I am working on it though and this idea of being focussed is very critical. I dont think that it means that we need to give everything else up, only that we need to focus on the subject at hand and give it, its due time and effort.
