Stupid People Hate Trump: Why Fighters can’t function under rigid plans

I say it a lot; I would never in a million years if given a chance go back in time to a period where I was younger.  I love every year of my life and I regret nothing along the way.  Yet with that said, I consider every new year to be like a graduation.  You earn a reputation with age and wisdom that gives a guy like me the ability to do more.  Donald Trump, because of a supportive father was able to jump into life with his natural gifts very early, so he didn’t have to suffer through much of what I’m about to say.  But it has also positioned him uniquely to run for president with an amassed wealth that nobody could have understood which he has acquire during a lifetime.  Now, I’ve also explained this too, because there is a very scientific reason that Donald Trump is wired the way he is, and why he’s successful.  CLICK HERE FOR THAT FORMAL UNDERSTANDING.  But for the purpose of this article, let’s just say that most people are stupid and they need certain things to navigate through life—from raising children to running a business.  They are intellectually handicapped—likely by no fault of their own.  People like Trump are a rarity—and when you meet one, you have to make special accommodations to utilize their very special talents.   This is precisely why Donald Trump does not get into specifics when he identifies a problem.  Below is a fascinating news story from Sky News which explores the Donald Trump phenomena from all fair sides which will help everyone understand along with this text why Trump is the perfect job applicant to run our American Republican—and also why nobody can outmaneuver him.

It has only been very recently—within the last six or seven years that the people who work with me have stopped asking for a “plan.”  I am the kind of person who can’t stand being held down to the limits of a plan.  Stupid people need plans—for me, they greatly encumber my thinking.  I can walk out in front of any number of people and give a speech with no notes and speak for hours.  I’m a person who can multitask at many levels with a wide array of people to accomplish a strategic objective.  I take only random notes—usually only one or two word entries to remind me of things—but in general notes slow me down too much.  I enjoy thinking on my feet quickly and dynamically—and increasingly it’s the only way that I will endeavor into something.  Prior to these last few years I didn’t yet have a reputation that allowed me to say to very important people, “trust me,” and they would just do it.  Investors, employers, politicians even family members want to know what the “plan” is.  But I could never give it to them because I learned very early, that plans were not dynamic enough for reality.  What is better is to understand the objective then trust your skills as a person to achieve the end result in spite of whatever obstacles present themselves as barriers to achievement.  A banker certainly doesn’t understand that type of thinking—without a plan, they’d have a heart attack.

When I was a kid I got into a lot of fights.  I was always the type who resisted the established authority of the masses, because to me, the people who formed that authority were not as smart as me.  So why would I listen to them?  I have a very long history of breaking the rules of collectivism with a complete disregard—and of course that has caused me to be in a lot of combative situations.  For instance, when someone who is committed to collective enterprise is challenged in such a way they have no other recourse but violence to pull people into their way of thinking.  As an example, way back in my early twenties my wife and I went to visit a friend of ours at his college fraternity.  I didn’t recognize all the “brotherhood” rules of this “frat” house, I simply walked in—stepped across a seal they had on their sidewalk that supposedly meant war to anybody who did, and asked to see my friend who then took me around his fraternity house with my wife for a tour—which infuriated these structured little bastards.  They were so angry with me being there with no regard for their rule driven little fraternity that they couldn’t contain themselves with anger after I left.  But while I was there, they didn’t say or do anything.  The reason was that I had been in many conflicts and people can read confidence in a person—and there was nothing for me to worry about, and it scared them.  I showed no fear of them in the least and they didn’t understand how to “manage” me and it scared them.

The worst thing a fighter can do is go into a fight with a plan.  If you think I’m going to do this, and he’s gonna’ do that, then the moment those things don’t happen—you’ll be lost and you’ll hold your feet into position too long and you’ll get pummeled by the other guy.  You have to know and trust through your training that you can counter anything that anybody throws at you.  Better yet, your only plan needs to be in beating the other guy—and like the great Bruce Lee, you have to be like water—to take any form to achieve the task.  So you step into the ring, you watch what the other guy offers, then you take all your vast skills and utilize them anyway you can to come out on top and win the match.  Early in my life, like 7 through 10 years of age if I had to fight someone after school—I worried about it all day—it made me absolutely miserable.  But after you win a few times and get your confidence under your feet you begin to trust yourself and you realize that the other guy is often thinking in a very rigid way—which makes him easy to beat.  He has in his mind how the fight is going to go and the moment you take that away from him—he is on a path to losing.  By the time I was around 13 to 16 I had mastered the confidence to trust myself in any situation and could think quickly on the balls of my feet.  I’d get into these fights with a formlessness that gave me great liberty in achieving victory, and it worked great.  By then, if I had a fight after school I was actually able to enjoy myself free of worry.  For instance, even though the result was very tragic, CLICK HERE TO REVIEW, leading up to it should have been very scary. Before a big fight, I was supposed to fight three guys at once at a very menacing location.  These boys had spread the rumor that they were going to literally kill me and it was all over school.  Before the fight, I went to see a girl I liked and spent time at her house before picking up some friends and going to see Nightmare on Elm Street at the theater and having a really good time—for some it might have been the best time of their lives—even still.  For me it was just another day in my life—but for them it was the stuff of the best movie they had ever seen.  I was very loose and happy–sincerely enjoying my life.  I was 16-years old at the time and had reached my peak for that kind of thing, and the results were tragic for the other people—which was regretful.  But the point of the matter was that I knew what the objective was going to be and I had a very loose plan on how to achieve it.  Reality presented a whole host of variables that I had to work around—but in the end I achieved my objectives in spite of the obstacles.

I’ve had the same approach in just about everything in my life.  I’ve had some really stupid people that have worked over me try to intimidate my style into falling in compliance with the way they understand things—and I have never complied.  After watching me for years they are no closer today to understanding how or why I do things and why those things turn out so well than they were in the beginning.  I don’t take many notes, I don’t seek the counsel of other people—I don’t ask advice about anything—because why would I?  I trust myself in every situation.  I don’t need to be guided or steered in any way.  Now that I’m older people have learned to just shut up and do what I tell them to, and things always work out for them.  If they don’t listen—then I just drop them and go do something else.  But working in collaboration, or in shared partnerships—forget about it.  It doesn’t work and I don’t have any interest in those types of things unless I’m 100% free to do it my way exclusively.  Of course I have great communication skills so I give people the same respect that I expect and they can thrive as well—but it takes time for people to understand how to trust me.  Without a reputation to go on—which no young person has—it’s hard for people who don’t think in these fashions to understand how to deal with a guy like me.

I see in Donald Trump many of the same traits—reading The Art of the Deal he introduces himself as a multitasker who doesn’t take notes and is quick on his feet.  He is certainly a fighter in his own right that is similar to me in the way that he thinks.  Trump was fortunate to have a father who didn’t try to crush that spirit out of him.  Basically Trump was given a good million dollar loan after proving himself early in life to make his way in the Big Apple.  Of course things worked out for him and he exploded into the kind of person that he is now.  But essentially, he is a street fighter who squeezed the most out of the opportunities that were presented to him.  Most people are not as smart as he is—they are functionally stupid because they don’t understand how he works—so they ridicule his talents for a lack of understanding.  It is odd for me to watch him go through this campaign process because he is a person at the top of his game who is now being scrutinized by a very static political system with the dynamism that infuriates virtually everyone—from voters all the way down to the staunchest supporter of the political establishment.   I would not want to do what he’s doing because it would be infuriating to deal with so many stupid people.  Even getting into his nice 757 airplane you really can’t forget the dumb people around you who just don’t get it.  Donald Trump knows how to make America great again—but he also knows that it will be a fight and the path to get there isn’t known.  What he does understand is that no matter what anybody throws at him—that he can counteract it, and that he will be successful in his objectives—whether it’s building a border wall, or improving the economy.  Unfortunately, most people need a rigid plan to understand how to get there and in politics—the system has been designed as a collective enterprise—which by nature is functionally deficient.  I trust Trump because I trust myself.  Politics will never be the same after his run—that is for sure—but it pains me to watch him be scrutinized by people who clearly aren’t of the same caliber as he is.  I know how painful it is and he is doing it on such a large scale that it has to be difficult.  But I’m glad that he’s willing to do it—because it will take someone like him to pull off the job.   Things are so messed up globally that it will take such a mind with the kind of resources he has to have a chance of fixing things.  But a rigid plan will never get us there—and thankfully, Trump supporters have a good instinct to know that something special is going on even if they don’t quite understand it.  That is the clear message in the news report above—and is the key to understanding Donald Trump and his vision for America which will actually benefit everyone in some way or another toward a destiny only he and a few others can see.  But he can’t put it down on paper for stupid people to see—because they’ll never understand.
