As the Democratic Party’s effort to deny America its duly-elected President hit a rough patch in the House of Representatives, with its almost certain failure coming in the Senate, it might be time for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to get an advance copy of my book TRUMP YOUR LIFE: 45 Life Lessons from the Ups and Downs of the 45th President of the United States. After all, had they learned just a few of the lessons I present in the book (along with Christian Josi, my co-author and Roger Stone, who wrote the foreword), then this whole calamity, which will further weaken the Democratic Party, could have been avoided.
They could have jumped right to Lessons 4 and 5, short excerpts of which follow:
Lesson 4: Let NO ONE take you for a weakling, a fool or a fraud.
Donald Trump has a gut-level hatred of fakers and frauds. Growing up watching his father go through investigation after investigation by New York State and the federal government (with zero indictments, by the way) and then making his own mark on the not-for-fools NYC construction racket (and it is a racket), you either end up joining them or fighting tooth and nail. Relentlessly. Trump certainly didn’t join them . . . .
Donald Trump never goes down without a fight. Neither should you.
As Gandhi said, “Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.”
Did Chairman Schiff and Speaker Pelosi really, fully understand that they were entering the ring with one of the greatest street fighter-statesmen in the history of the world? Um, I doubt it.
Lesson 5: Assume you will encounter increasing resistance as you pursue bigger goals.
Here’s the key: Rather than being disheartened by . . . opposition, you should do what Donald Trump does. Interpret the heightened resistance, especially to your loftiest goals, as a sign that your are truly on a road to something genuine and important. Turn the friction you feel coming from small minds into fuel for your intentions. Double down.
Donald Trump’s adversaries still don’t understand that he thrives in adversity. He is emboldened by it. (And so can you, by the way.) They clearly didn’t understand that trying to destroy him would not only carry the risk that it might not work, but would carry a risk that it could backfire and destroy them. Pull on Superman’s cape, and you get his attention.
One of our great pleasures in writing Trump Your Life is the certain knowledge that making President Trump’s secrets of success widely available means that lots of Americans can become more autonomous, more productive, more successful and more resistant to attempts to deceive them and take what is rightfully theirs.
The Trump Presidency represents something more than the triumph of conservative ideas over less worthy ones. It also represents a free, nationwide seminar on autonomy, courage, commitment, and achievement. You can use the lessons of President Trump’s leadership style to dramatically improve your own life, your family life, your business and your community. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a guidebook to make use of this incredible opportunity for personal empowerment? Well, there is: Trump Your Life.
