Think Like A Champion: An Informal Education in Business and Life (2009)

trumpthinkFOREWORD
by Robert Kiyosaki
 

One of the benefits of working with Donald is observing him in action in real life. Over the years, I have gotten to know the real Donald, as well as the “celebrity Donald.” I have found he is the same person . . . In fact he is actually bigger in real life than his celebrity.

Working with him, I have observed him thinking, then listened
to his thoughts become words and his thoughts and words become
actions. In most instances, his thoughts, words, and actions are the

Many of us know people who are, actually, three people. They
think one thing, say something else, and do not do what they say
or think. I have observed these kinds of people, who are really three
people, achieve limited success and live conflicted lives.
In early 1980, I lost my first major business. Los ing everything
was as horrible as you might expect. Los ing every thing gave power
to the loser in me. Worst of all, I had lost confidence in myself. I
knew what I had to do, but for some reason I simply did not do
what I knew I had to do. My personal battle between 1980 and
1990 was to gain power over my own thoughts. To regain power
over my thoughts, I began reading and listening to great thoughts
from great people . . . and then made those thoughts mine. Slowly
but surely, my business life began to turn and I began to win again.
In 1987, just after the stock market crashed, I came across Donald’s
book The Art of the Deal. My wife Kim and I put aside everything
we were doing and read that book. As the world was
crashing down, we had the opportunity and benefit—through
Donald’s thoughts, words, and actions—to see the world of business.
By 1994, Kim and I were financially free. In our quiet moments,
Kim and I often discuss how Donald’s book inspired us to
go on, even though the world was crashing down around us.
In 1997, reading his book The Art of the Comeback verified for
us that we were following the thoughts of a great man. Very few
people will talk publicly, much less write, about their mistakes, their
lessons, and their comeback.
In 2004, Kim and I met Donald for the first time. Obviously
he did not know who we were, yet he was extremely gracious and
we thanked him for sharing his thoughts through his books.
In late 2006, Donald and I published our book, Why We
Want You To Be Rich: Two Men, One Message. Fueled by our shared
concern for people and our desire to teach, Donald and I collaborated
on this book, predicting much of the financial chaos 2008
would bring.
It is an honor to write this Foreword for his book, Think Like
a Champion, because teaching me to think like a champion is
the gift Donald has given my wife and me . . . a gift he shares with
the world . . . a gift more valuable than money.
