Donald Trump has lived a million lives. In 1980, he opened the Grand Hyatt New York and since then has built and renovated countless hotels, casinos, and office towers. He began starring in NBC’s reality TV show The Apprentice in 2004. Trump owned the Miss Universe Organization from 1996 to 2015, too. Now, he’s the 45th president of the United States.

Unafraid to venture into new territory, Donald Trump has enjoyed tremendous success in all of his endeavors. He demonstrates just how far courage, confidence, and hard work can take us all. Here are 7 Trump quotes that encapsulate the American Dream:

  • “No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.”

Trump inspires us to tackle challenges, no matter how daunting they seem.

  • “Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here.”

The sky is the limit. We, alone, are responsible for our outcomes in life. Success starts with an empowering mindset.

  • You have to think anyway, so why not think big?”

Seek and pursue opportunity. Do what excites your soul and makes your heart beat a little faster.

  • “Sometimes by losing a battle, you find a new way to win the war.” 

Everyone experiences failure at some point. But, when we learn from our mistakes, we understand ourselves better and can develop smarter strategies for success.

  • “It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag.” 

Our time-honored liberty and deep-rooted patriotism unite us as a nation. We shouldn’t let our physical differences stop us from coming together and celebrating what makes America great.

  • “What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.” 

Life throws curveballs at us sometimes. But, we shouldn’t shrink away in the face of adversity. Challenges make us stronger.

  • “We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.”

Just as the Founders did, we should keep honest discourse open. If we’re to pursue true excellence, we must remain open-minded to new ideas. As millions have said before, we are one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!
