As a child growing up in New York, I learned to, and always loved to, THINK BIG. For that I give thanks to many great coaches, role models and even amazing US Presidents like: President John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and now Donald J Trump.
It is more important than ever to think BIG and always have a POSITIVE & GROWTH MINDSET.
Whether it’s your life, relationship, business, sporting event or even your country – you must meet people with positivity, faith, and confidence to be successful and be a winner.
As I have often written, talked about having ‘positive mindset’. In fact, recently I even stated ‘I believe that every successful entrepreneur, marketer, closer or leader today, must have a positive mindset and maintain a state of always believing positive things will happen. This is the best way to think about yourself, your goals, your future and your daily actions.’
To be the best, you have to surround yourself with the best!
This community is for anyone who is ready to ‘level-up’ his or her mindset and sees what is truly possible. And, I have often heard leading business executives including: Dan Pena, Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn and others stated: ‘You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.’
WHAT SHAPED MY POSITIVE MINDSET ON USA
The US Presidents that have made me the most proud, shaped my life and mindset the most since I have been alive all have common and profound traits of conservative values and morals that I have gravitated to over the decades.
The most common areas I clearly see today across all three include: Love of Country, Love of Family, strong faith and respect for God plus – all these Presidents were strongly, anticommunism, pushed economic growth and were entrepreneurial, deal-makers and wanted all Americans (regardless of skin color, race or background) – to make more money and become more successful.
Here’s my personal recap on the three US Presidents that were critical in helping inspire me and awaken me to all the “dumb ideas” from TV, newspapers, certain political views and even the successes and failures of other countries the US has traditionally competed with or is a friend and ally.
These Presidents have especially shown me all the sneaky mental habits trapping victims in their own bubbles of reality with Fake News, uncritical thinking and lack of a historic knowledge.
My THREE favorite US Presidents during my lifetime (YES…includes both major US Political Parties e.g. Democrat & Republican)
- John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) was an American politician who served as the 35th president of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. Kennedy served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his work as president dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union and Cuba. A Democrat, Kennedy represented Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate prior to becoming President.
2. Ronald Wilson Reagan was an American politician who served as the 40th president of the United States from 1981 to 1989 and became the highly influential voice of modern conservatism. Prior to his presidency, he was a Hollywood actor and union leader before serving as the 33rd governor of California from 1967 to 1975. (Additionally, we both were members of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity too!)
3. Donald John Trump is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality. Donald J. Trump is the very definition of the American success story, setting the standards of excellence in his business endeavors, and now, for the United States of America. A graduate of the Wharton School of Finance, President Trump has always dreamed big and pushed the boundaries of what is possible his entire career, devoting his life to building business, jobs and the American Dream. This was brought to life by a movement he inspired in the people of America when he announced his candidacy for President of the United States in June 2015.
All were charismatic leaders with big goals for the U.S and I know with both JFK and Ronald Reagan, we still today imagine / always wonder what could’ve been had Camelot continued.
BUT, with our current President, we have seen over his first three years in office, already massive growth, manufacturing returning to the US, best employment levels in American history, a booming GDP and Stock market PLUS…he is the deal-maker the way lions are carnivores and water is wet.
ALL WERE, AND ARE, AMAZING LEADERS FOR THE USA WITH GROWTH AND WIN ‘BIGLY’ MINDSETS.
And, as Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking stated,
“The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, and give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, and think of others. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.”
WHY I SUPPORT AMERICAN GROWTH MINDSET & TRUMP TODAY
Trump has merged Entertainment & Politics from 2016 and is actually putting on the BIGGEST SHOW of all time.
Even surpassing the English Royal Weddings, The Romans throwing slaves and Christians to the Lions or even the Super Bowl. (TRUMP has 100% captured the attention of every American as well as, every world leader again now too. Like JFK and Ronald Reagan – they all have put America First!
TRUMP IS THE MAESTRO OF ENTERTAINMENT & POLITICS!
Move over – Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus – yes, you once where the billed as The Greatest Show on Earth until 2016.
BUT, President Trump knows how to command attention and runs the biggest show on the planet today!
Check some of President Trumps Achievements over his first three years as President:
- He has created almost 4 million jobs created since his election.
- We have the best Military in the entire world and have great alliances with more countries today and are moving to partnership and growth from having a scarcity mindset with foreign relations to a positive growth mindset and WIN-WIN, abundance mindset. Trump wants every country to be rich and not at war. E.g. North Korea, Russia/Putin, Syria, etc.
- More Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history.
- We have created more than 400,000+ manufacturing jobs since his election win.
- Manufacturing jobs are growing at the fastest rate for more than THREE DECADES.
- Economic growth last quarter hit 4.2+ percent.
- New unemployment claims recently hit a 50-year low.
- Median household income has hit highest level ever recorded.
- African-American unemployment has recently achieved the lowest rate ever recorded.
- Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
- Asian-American unemployment recently achieved the lowest rate ever recorded.
- Women’s unemployment recently reached the lowest rate in 65 years.
- Youth unemployment has recently hit the lowest rate in nearly half a century.
- Lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for Americans without a high school diploma.
- He stands 100% behind the US Constitution!
So, I would love to conclude this article trying to pinpoint why in my opinion the USA is DOMINATING again under President Trump, like it did under JFK and Ronald Reagan.
It is because our current President has an absolutely POSITIVE MINDSET and he excels at:
- KEEPING IT SIMPLE – He always keeps it easy, short and simple. Importantly always aiming high e.g. Tariffs on China, working closing with Russia/Putin, bringing manufacturing back to the US, etc.
- CLARITY –Our POTUS inspires Americans again and gives them a precise and clear sense of purpose. He also clearly articulates the things that inspire the team and those around you and your company and Country too.
- FRAMEWORK – Trump provides a framework to build a ‘movement’ that lead and can inspire others.
- FOCUS – President Trump always keep a strong single-minded and focused approach. Avoids confusion, clutter and overloading ideas.
- PRESIDENT TRUMP USES PURPOSE TO LEAD – Purpose is a great way to motivate and inspire your team and troops. It integrates them and galvanizes them to fight for the same team and battle.
- POTUS BRINGS PURPOSE TO LIFE IN THE MARKETPLACE & THE USA – He makes sure all Americans, staff, partners, vendors, suppliers, stakeholders, and investors know what the US stands for.
- POTUS SHOOTS FOR THE MOON – President Trump’s high expectations drive thrill and will to staff and employees and Keep America Great. Importantly, he sets highest standards and expectations horrify your competitors too.
Remember, the biggest lessons you can learn from these three awesome American Presidents are: if you want to excel at work, have even more purpose in life and be even more successful…it all starts with making deeper and better connections in life, defining your purpose and living it.
Success only comes from the consistent increase in the quality of your ‘holistic life’.
And, the single biggest aspect I have used as ‘role models’ from all the three US Presidents was their common characteristics, they all: “Formulated and stamped indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture… Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.”
Finally, always shoot daily to have a great week, not a great Friday once a week. Expect to excel consistently, constantly and daily. Plan for High Performance and success! And win, not only the day, but every day.
Win the day and live with purpose and passion!
