Donald Trump told a story about himself to his daughter Ivanka in the backseat of a limo driving in New York City.Â They were halted to a red light and saw a bum pan handling for money.Â Donald turned to his daughter and told her that the bum sitting on the curb actually has a higher net worth than he does.Â His daughter was confused and questioned Donald on what he meant. Donald explained that after a series of unfortunate events, he was over 1 billion dollars in debt, whilst that bum is at $0.
You think it’s bad having a few collectors call you during the day, Donald had collectors calling him round the clock (international investors).Â Donald came to a point where he needed to make a move so he decided to call an emergency meeting with his investors.Â Everyone at the meeting was pissed and looking to get their investment return.Â What the Donald did was unheard of and completely unexpected.Â He asked his investors, whom he owed billions of dollars to for MORE MONEY! Many investors decided not to but several did.Â This was the turning point in Donald’s life because with this new cash power, he was able to make various smart investments which brought him out of the red and into the billions of dollars he’s worth today.
When a person reaches a point of being several thousands of dollars of debt, they change into a negative depressed state of mind.Â Imagine what state your mind would be in if you were over a billion dollars in debt!Â When life gave The Donald lemons, he made lemonade, then sold the lemonade and made huge amounts of profits.
I’m not telling you its okay to have debt, good debt vs. bad debt, or anything about finance, I’m telling you that there will always be a time where you have a serious down.Â You’ll hit rock bottom.Â Maybe even more than once.Â People work so hard in their endeavors and fail to reach success, yet little do they know, their success was only seconds, days , or months away.Â In the book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill tells of a story of these people who were digging for gold but decided to give up.Â The gold was only 3 feet away.
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING – “When the situation gets critical, those who aren’t weak-willed work harder and never give up.
-Joseph P. Kennedy (1888-1969), the father of (U.S.) President John F. Kennedy
