Nice.. I mostly try to follow kim jong un's advice. He is even more successful because he owns his own country and got his own nukes.

Interesting video.

How are we defining successful?

Becoming a president is successful. Owning the most towers in NY is successful. Becoming a billionaire is successful.

You would not achieve a fraction of Trump’s achievements in 100 lifetimes.

Nice vid. I think its useful to take advice from people who've gone from A to B in some area, and copy what they did if you want to do a similar A to B.

However, its also important to account for survivor bias and disregard advice they give that pertains to areas they don't have expertise in.

I.e. I'd take advice from trump on how to become president, but not about foreign policy

Is it?

Laying aside questions of whether Trump actually is a billionaire and his inheritance, are those things still what defines being successful?

What if I become president, but I do so by dividing the country, fear-mongering and bringing out the worst in people? Am I still successful?

What if I become a billionaire, but I do so by laying waste to huge essential environmental ecosystems, exploiting my employees and selling products that keep people unhealthy?

What if I own all the towers in NY, but I’m so busy managing all my towers that I don’t have the proper time to mediate, heal, contemplate and nourish my soul?

Point being, I would argue your post implies a vary narrow, reductionistic metric of success. Which in this case is personal wealth accumulation / status.

Those metrics might be factored in to a more holistic view of success, but certainly don’t tell the whole story.

If personal wealth accumulation / status is the only metric of success you care about in this post, then that’s your choice. But I’d much prefer to broaden our definitions.

That sounds like a cheap shot.

Almost everyone can have a fraction of Trump's achievement. Even 1/1000000 is a fraction.

Be wise

You aren’t learning much about success from Trump if you aren’t wishing it to other human fellows


I’m the one who dreams.

@How to be wise not even bad advise, and you can hear that it really comes from experience. Also the " if you can't handle pressure, thats okey, but you got to know it" was interesting, since this isn't really a fascist mindset. 

It kind of gives me hope that he won't be as destructive as other fascists. I mean his biggest problem/ bias is just that he is a complete capitalist, (from his upbringing, to his buisnesses). 

I have been thinking how much damage he could do, if he gains power in 2024, and I was quite unsure (it may even be more dangerous what he will do if he doesn't win the 2024 election). The MAGA movement will probably peak during that time and he could use to create a conflict with China or he could try to create some sort of civil war/ division, where the MAGA and the democrats become completly opposed. Seeing that video I kind of believe he won't do that much, he will just be nice to buisness, make a few irrelevant political stunts like building a wall or some other cultural stuff and be gone.

Isn't this like a second post of yours, worshiping this guy's balls? Does he pay you to do this, to exhaggarate his achievements, or what? What are you even getting out of this? Weird.

Not sure why so many Americans hate Trump. He's pro-America. He protects America against several of the unfair trades made by China, Asia and many countries. He created jobs for America. Most importantly, he is passionate and out to serve. He also wants to end war and manage to pacify the situation in North Korea. Sure he made mistakes but who doesn't?

As compared to Joe Biden who just seems to hide everywhere he goes.

If you are not American, I may understand why you hate him.
