Donald Trump and The Apprentice Rules Applied to Dating

Written by Robert Torrey

I was reading an article aboutrepparttar Apprentice and some ofrepparttar 105883 rules that Donald Trump and his apprentice assistants had come up with about business. While reading a lot of them I saw a huge relation to how these same rules also apply to dating as crazy as it might sound.

Donald Trump is a famous Billionaire who has endured ups and downs for a number of decades. It appears a large portion of his wealth has been made in Real Estate. Recently he has had a popular reality series NBC has been showing known asrepparttar 105884 Apprentice. The Reality Show isn't all frivolous as a lot ofrepparttar 105885 other reality shows around.Atrepparttar 105886 center of every episode are real gems on how to climb a corporate ladder, how to lead, how to stand out fromrepparttar 105887 crowd and even how to fail and avoid gettingrepparttar 105888 boot.

The Apprentice centers on a competition for a job working forrepparttar 105889 Billionaire Donald Trump. Every episode features some sort of business task or some sort of competition. Atrepparttar 105890 end of each episode some ofrepparttar 105891 competitors are fired which means they leaverepparttar 105892 show and miss out onrepparttar 105893 opportunity to work for My Trump. This takes place inrepparttar 105894 Boardroom where members are encouraged to evaluate their teammates performance, abilities, work ethics. The guy who makesrepparttar 105895 biggest errors tends to berepparttar 105896 one "fired". Beyond winningrepparttar 105897 competition, each individual team member must act in a manner that earns him or her respect as a project manager or team member.

Some ofrepparttar 105898 gems ofrepparttar 105899 show for thought.

1. Think Like A Winner Donald Trump's most profound comment (and first commandment) is, "Winning is everything." He explained that while there is no better feelin...repparttar 105900 ability to think like a winner isrepparttar 105901 key to being one. Those who take their eyes offrepparttar 105902 prize wind up hearing two little words: you're fired.

This relates to dating as somebody who feels confident can be confident.A person who feels he has already won a battle has a huge edge over somebody who feels he has a lot of obstacles to overcome. A person who feels he is a winner is a winner as your beliefs are what shape you.The person you wish to win over will be heavily more attracted to somebody who believes in themselves than somebody who doesn't.

2. Polish Your Interview Skills The importance of exceptional interview skills became crucial asrepparttar 105903 field narrowed torepparttar 105904 final four contestants in episode 14. Kelly, Jennifer M, Kevin and Stacy underwent a grueling series of job interviews with four ofrepparttar 105905 top business leaders inrepparttar 105906 world. The two candidates left standing after this process Kelly and Jennifer M demonstrated superior ability to think on their feet. Some ofrepparttar 105907 spontaneous answers lobbed by Kevin and Sandy, made viewers cringe. It quickly became clear who hadrepparttar 105908 ?right stuff' to surviverepparttar 105909 hot seat.

This second rule can be applied to having good communication skills. Somebody who can think of their feet and express their thoughts easily can communicate their feelings much more easily.Somebody who is also good at interviews will know what to say that can open somebody up to a whole new level. They will allow a great sense of rapport to be built quickly and be very deep.

3. Lead Strong or Play Along Getting their team of ?alphas' to follow without question was a challenge for each project manager. Some ruled with an iron fist, others used manipulation and guilt. Some didn't handle it at all. In episode 11, Wes tookrepparttar 105910 lead in a task to create an ad campaign for Levi's Jeans. Maria, one of his teammates, thought she had this task together and angrily told Wes to back off, while she seized control. Maria was so busy throwing her weight around, she missedrepparttar 105911 primary focus of jeans advertising...repparttar 105912 ?butt shots'. This single oversight costrepparttar 105913 team dearly. Later, in The Boardroom, Wes was fired for failing to control Maria,,, and she was fired for posing as a know-it-all. Two forrepparttar 105914 price of one turned out to be all in a day's work for Mr. Donald Trump.

On this and dating. One ofrepparttar 105915 things we teach our students in workshops is to lead and never hesitate. When a student sees strong indications of interest it is his responsibility to act on them and follow up. If a student fails to lead thanrepparttar 105916 interest level will soon drop to a very low level quickly. Learning to Play along can also be taken as a way to seerepparttar 105917 signals and be aware of them.When somebody is showing interest it's best to play along and let them be interested than giving them something else.

4. Step Up; Take Responsibility Finger-pointing was rampant among teams onrepparttar 105918 Apprentice. If you were really slick about it, laying blame off on one of your teammates could help you survive another day. If you weren't... oh well.

This is a common thing I see with some students when I hear about what they have done before working with Fidentia in a workshop. They fail to take responsibility for their own actions.This is done in so many ways its crazy.First if they have a bad date they blamerepparttar 105919 date a lot, where they went, what they did, others around yet they never look at themselves and wonder if they could have done anything different to improverepparttar 105920 situation.The only way to learn from mistakes is to first realize you made a mistake inrepparttar 105921 first place.

Another example is guys who use different systems for dating. There are many programs out there. I can make ALL of them work.When a student can not make something work. They tend to first want to blamerepparttar 105922 system instead of themselves. So they are on a constant search of dating systemsnever realizing that each system has had some students have success.They can not learn if they do not take responsibility for their own actions.

5. Resistrepparttar 105923 Impulse to Be Impulsive The game provides thatrepparttar 105924 winning project manager receive an exemption from firing should his or her team loserepparttar 105925 following week an Apprentice "Get Out of Jail Free" card. Bradford won week one... but lost in week two. He had clearly beenrepparttar 105926 hardest working and most productive on his team and Mr. Trump seemed to especially favor him. Moreover, he hadrepparttar 105927 exemption and could not be fired. All he had to do was sit back and make insightful comments about his teammates. But Bradford let his cockiness get inrepparttar 105928 way of sound business judgment. He bragged to Mr. Trump that he was so confident of his performance he was willing to give up his exemption. Trump accepted Bradford's offer... and then fired him, for making an unwise and impulsive decision. It was a harsh, but instructive consequence for acting in a rash manner.

Confident Rapport

Written by Seth Parker

What Is Confident Rapport? The majority of theories on how to pick up girls were compiled by guys who had problems with women and tried to get better. Therein liesrepparttar very nature ofrepparttar 105882 problems with most theory. They all assume that you, going over torepparttar 105883 girl, have less value then her. By assuming this, you're forced to play a role of lower value. Why on earth are you assuming you are worth less thenrepparttar 105884 girl? I don't care how hot she is!

This is especially true ofrepparttar 105885 rapport versus attraction theory. The theory is: assuming you have two glasses that you need to fill attraction and rapport,repparttar 105886 attraction glass must be filled before she will pay attention to your rapport. Well this theory suffers greatly from 'my rapport isn't high enough value for her to listen to.

What your saying is that you have to WORK for her ATTENTION. By thinking this, you PLAY intorepparttar 105887 role of having less value. Let me put it to you this way, if you are a nerd and you walk over to a hot girl and she says "bug off," you're probably going to turn around and walk away right? Then your going to come up with strategies to make her pay attention. Now what if you were better looking then Brad Pitt, had more money then Donald Trump, and she said that. You would probably laugh. And she would respond differently because you responded differently.

You see allrepparttar 105888 outer problems stem from internal responses. What you believe shapes your reality. And if you believe you need to fill an attraction glass- that you need to fight for her attention you are falling intorepparttar 105889 frame that you are inherently NOT good enough.

Well my friend, this is BASED on FALSE assumptions that you are not good enough and therefore must get her interested. If you assume anything at all- instead assume she loves to hear your rapport and get to know you. All people WANT- NEED to be loved. they just have filters. You should assume your better thenrepparttar 105890 guys she filters out, and laugh away any resistance. Why bother juggling and dancing, and doing all kinds of routines just to get her attention. Respond differently to resistance, respond with confidence and you can forgetrepparttar 105891 two glass theory. How you respond to her should MAKE her interested by displaying a stronger reality.
