After the Indiana primary, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said he expects to see Donald Trump become the Republican presidential nominee. This statement from Priebus came after Ted Cruz’ announcement that he would be withdrawing from the race for the seat in the White House after a difficult loss in Indiana.
Priebus said that now is the time for the Republican party to unite and support the most probable candidate: Donald Trump. Trump, who has worked hard campaigning throughout the United States, did not fall upon his success easily though. He is considered to be one of the most successful men in the U.S. and, now, he may even be able to claim the seat in the White House. How does someone reach that level of success? Here are a few tips from Donald that may help you succeed in your next business venture, life goal or short-term goal:
Find Something You Love
According to The Independent, Donald Trump said, “I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.” If you find something that you enjoy doing, you are more likely to succeed at it. For instance, if you enjoy writing and you seek a job in writing, you are more likely to succeed at that job.
Trust Your Instinct
Sometimes the most successful people are successful because they followed their gut. Trump, for instance, doesn’t place a huge amount of work into number crunching. If you wait on the numbers and the facts every time you are trying to strike a deal, the deals would be long gone.
Trump also says that if you are going to be successful, you should aim high. According to Trump, he sets goals and “aims high.” Then, he keeps pushing to reach that goal and even surpasses it at times. “To me it’s very simple: if you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big,” he said. Aiming high can lead to success in every part of life. For instance, if you are budgeting and are aiming to save for a house, set an ambitious goal. The more ambitious you become in goal-setting, the harder you’ll push to meet those goals.
Obsess A Little
Don’t obsess over your goals or your job and lose relationships in your life, but do have a set amount of focus when you are working. You need it. According to Trump, you cannot think big without having total and complete focus. Most big business leaders obsess and focus on a problem, business deal or other work-related items until they are completed successfully. The likely RNC presidential nominee says, “I don’t say this trait leads to a happier life, or a better life, but it’s great when it comes to getting what you want.”
Many people that are trying to reach a certain level of success lose themselves in the process. However, being yourself is an important key to success. Donald Trump, for instance, has never wavered where his personality and personal beliefs are concerned. This is true with his business as well as his campaign. He may say things that people don’t like, but he always stays true to himself and that is a huge key to your overall success.
Have Fun With It
The GOP hopeful says, “If it can’t be fun, what’s the point? Life is very fragile, and success doesn’t change that. If anything, success makes it more fragile. Anything can change, without warning, and that’s why I try not to take any of what’s happened too seriously.” If something goes wrong, don’t spend time worrying about what you could have done differently, spend time making sure it doesn’t happen again and move on.
