This was the final chapter in the book and of course it was titled â€œThink big and kick ass in business in lifeâ€. For the most part it was mostly a re-affirmation of what has been said with different stories.
One thing that I thought was odd was that there were a lot of pages near the beginning of this chapter where Trump talks about how many women he has been with as well as diving into topics such as what attracts women and so fourth. It felt completely off topic especially with lines such as â€œSo guys, be cocky, confident, smart, and humorous and you will be able to get all the women you wantâ€. Felt more like reading a book of â€œHow to be a player 101â€.
Although, I believe the intent in writing those parts was to demonstrate how in life attitude plays a large role on how others perceive you. He then talks about how if you are thinking big in life that you should say also own expensive and high end clothing to project to the world that you value quality.
I can easily see people interpreting that in a surface level way though which usually causes people to kill themselves financially. Speaking for myself, everyone who I have personally met who does that usually arenâ€™t too well off financially with the ones who can speak for themselves are usually the ones who are better off financially.
The rest of it talks about having the right will, courage and determination to see things through to the end. At the same time, he emphasizes the importance of how if you want to succeed then you need to surround yourself and make friends with like-minded people as oppose to say people who are always negative and complaining to others about problems. He even says that you should discontinue contact with negative people as they will only drain you.
He then wraps it up by re-emphasizing that in the world there will always be obstacles forced upon you in your journey to success such as greedy professionals who will want to take all of your money or people who are willing to lie, cheat and steal from you. You just have to be prepared to find ways to keep going.
That does it for this book. Iâ€™ll be writing my final thoughts on it overall.
