Day 2: Donald Trump and a Chinese Folktale

Donald Trump and a Chinese Folktale:
Work hard. Have fun. Fulfill your calling.

The story so far ~

Day 1...

Today ~ Day 2:

My angle:
What do I love to do?
What is my calling in life?
How can I fulfill my calling and use my power to do more good in the world?

The mystical angle:

The Magic Tapestry: "Long ago, a poor widow and her three sons lived in southern China. She was a weaver, as her mother and grandmother had been before her. But she had a special gift. She could weave the most beautiful tapestries of all."

The Trump angle:

Donald Trump in The Art of the Deal: "I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks."

"I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about what I should have done differently, or what’s going to happen next. If you ask me exactly what the deals I’m about to describe all add up to in the end, I’m not sure I have a very good answer. Except that I’ve had a very good time making them."

Donald Trump in Trump 101: "Set the bar high. Make people ooh and aah. In everything you take on, ask, 'How can I make it better, how can I make a stronger statement, and how can I make it reflect better on me?' Then go out and do it."
