Winning is Everything -- there are no 'Participation' Trophies in the Real World

This is an article from which highlights a lesson we can learn from Donald Trump. It is a contrarian view but an interesting one nonetheless.

"The younger generation today is being set up for failure. Its members are being taught at a very early age that participation alone is acceptable, but in fact that is so far from reality.

Trump never sets out to be a participant, in anything. He’s going for the win in the election and I guarantee he never opens a Trump resort with hopes of being one of the "top" hotels in the area.
I remember an incident back when my dad was the president of our local Little League. A parent was livid that the first-place championship Trophies my team received were significantly larger than the ones awarded to the other teams. And my dad? He just smiled and said, “Welcome to the real world.”

I can’t help but think how he would have loved this TV commercial from Kia. It addresses a very serious problem head-on. While most companies play the PC card, Kia says it like it is, and for that I applaud them.

Trump is going for the win, and nothing less, which is the kind of attitude that every entrepreneur should adopt."
