5 Business Lessons From Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign

downloadThe leading man in popularity on the internet in 2015 is undoubtedly the United States presidential hopeful- Donald Trump. This is in no way a promotion of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign but a mere fact. Sincerely speaking, I do not know how much about his manifesto. All I understand is that he has somehow managed to grasp the attention of many-mine included.

We cannot ignore him whether we like or dislike him. The man is all over. We can’t browse our TV channels without catching him on air or open a newspaper without reading something about him. From outlandish comments and remarks to his sole promise of making America great once again, Trump is definitely here to stay.

Even though he can be a loose cannon when it comes to unleashing his thoughts through words, I greatly admire and cherish his outstanding quality of being different. He isn’t afraid to speak his mind and isn’t afraid to give his genuine opinions. He isn’t in to maintain the status quo or keeping politics as usual. This is why he has boldly won the hearts and minds of both his supporters and opposers.

“Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.”- Donald Trump

Although Donald Trump is not 100% perfect as its is a norm with all humankind-me and you included, he also posses very admirable qualities we can all emulate to achieve outstanding success in the world of entrepreneurship.

Here are 5 admirable qualities I have learnt from Donald Trump’s presidential campaigns.

  1. Independent Thinking

Donald Trump isn’t a brown-noser or a follower. He isn’t afraid of going against the wind even if it means ruffling a few feathers or losing a portion of his popularity. He isn’t afraid to voice his opinions and he doesn’t allow the status quo influence his his decisions, thoughts and actions.

The reason why many people resonate at the same frequency with his thoughts is that they admire his boldness and the fact that he courageously says what they wish they had the confidence to say themselves.

It is always amazing to encounter people who embrace their individuality, dance to the tune of their own guitar and do not silence their voices even where most people do not agree to what they say.

2. Courage

Most of his non-supporters would argue that Donald is arrogant, cocky and probably proud. Nevertheless, if there is one thing we can all agree on though is that Trump is is extremely courageous and confident of his personality. This confidence gives him the faith to believe that he has what it takes to make America great again. Furthermore, his self-confidence has been instrumental in helping him to succeed in business, turn his undertakings into profit, take risks as well as take a leap of faith to bid for presidency. He isn’t afraid to get out of his comfort zone in order to get what he wants.

3.Dare Dream

“If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.”-Donald Trump

Most people might think that it is a pity for Donald to to seek presidency again. After all he is a business mogul and has nothing to do with politics and foreign affairs. Well, let me shed some light to you- he is probably running for presidency because he believes in the possibility of his dream coming true. He knows that everything is possible for those who dare to dream. Greatness isn’t out of anyone’s reach. It only takes passion, talent, diligence and perseverance. Donald has witnessed ordinary people like him soar up the leadership ladder. Because of this belief, he sees great possibility in his dreams coming true as well.

4. Hard work Pays

Donald is all over buzzing with energy. Meet him on twitter after every five minutes. See him on TV. Listen to him live on Radio. Plainly speaking, success doesn’t come on a silver platter. Trump understands this principle and as a result he is all out-working for his success.

5. Perseverance

No matter how much he is criticized, Trump manages to get back on his feet and keep moving. This man somehow has the tenacity of a ball and he has proved this over and over again. He doesn’t buck down whether pinned on the wall by an opponent. He will not allow other people’s opinions to dictate his actions and isn’t scared to dare his opponents no matter how many thy might be.

Final Purport

Definitely, the polls will determine whether victory or defeat shall be his portion. What I know is that for now, Donald’s gospel of making America great again has converted many naysayers into his believers. His admirable qualities can be beneficial to your entrepreneurial mission as well.
