Today I want to talk about 2 VERY important aspects of building a SUCCESSFUL MEGA business as my mentor Donald Trump has taught me: PATIENCE and TIMING!
Now most of you probably think of The Donald as IMPULSIVE with NO patience! Actually he is just the opposite!
Many of his biggest deals have taken YEARS to develop to where they are today. Same with my 23 YEAR quest to build a PHYSICAL Southern Music Hall of Fame & Museum. We are still NOT in a building yet but hopefully that is on the horizon in Asheville NC!
Donald likes to play tennis and so do I. Here is what he had to say using tennis as a metaphor: “I wait until the ball is in my court before I swing, which gives me the best chance of making my point.”
So GRUNTS remember: TIMING IS EVERYTHING and learn PATIENCE!
As you know my BILLIONAIRE mentor Donald Trump practices what he preaches: THINK BIG, BE FOCUSED, BE PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO, BE IN CHARGE, TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, DON’T GIVE UP, KEEP YOUR MOMENTUM MOVING FORWARD and LIVE ON THE EDGE!
By doing these practices which are HABITS for The Donald he builds businesses that are SUCCESSFUL and for the LONG haul!
YOU do need to do the same! I am building a Donald Trump type business of Preparedness & Survival at XtremePreparedness. I want to be the go-to-expert in this niche!
Can I make it a BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS? ABSOLUTELY! How?
I SO agree with my mentor Donald Trump that you must keep LEARNING!
I have LOVED reading and researching most all my life. That is probably why I was glad to be an INVESTIGATIVE reporter for CBS News and Post Newsweek than just a regular reporter.
It was through research on my first book on Earth Changes that I stumbled upon a two paragraph story on a VERY little known event – Y2K. That changed the entire approach to my book and led to me doing bookstore signings and appearances on CNN, Fox News and Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell.
I also agree with The Donald when he warns about becoming a KNOW IT ALL! I have a friend that has a annoying habit that may have stopped his advancement to admiral and later in business who is always saying: I ALREADY KNOW THAT. It is as annoying as that commercial where they say: EVERYONE KNOWS THAT.
Equally annoying is a friend who is always trying to show how much he knows but does not offer the same courtesy of listening to others.
As my mentor Donald Trump says MONEY is a SCORECARD or GAME but NOT the END RESULT!
Just asked those guys who jumped from the windows during the Depression. Just asked a guy who has spent his entire life chasing the buck what he wishes he had done more of when he was younger: spent time with his LOVED ONES is ALWAYS #1 on the list!
Donald and I do it because we are PASSIONATE about it. We LIVE for the GAME NOT the $!
HECK NO! These three guys were still in the DINOSAUR days of putting together a business instead of the 21st century where you strike hard like Navy SEALs do! They were COMMITEEING to DEATH this project! It was going NOWHERE FAST!
So Ron and I were HI FIVING their resignations because they were SOME WON’T instead of SOME WILL! Now we can put together a team that STRIKES HARD!
