If you meet every day with optimism – if you confront every obstacle with determination – if you refuse to give up, if you never quit, if you face every challenge with confidence and pride – then there is no goal you cannot achieve, and no dream beyond your reach! #YBLS2018 pic.twitter.com/Uqmw5fLmxW

Donald Trump is an extreme person who people tend to look at as a primal force of nature rather than a source of cheesy-but-true self-help motivational quotes.
But I have to draw attention to the fact that he posted one such quote, and that it is actually very good and worthwhile, even if it sounds like some generic poster from an elementary school hallway.
It is simply true that optimism and self-determination are at the core of men taking the world – reality itself, really – into their own hands and shaping it into what they want it to be.
It is much easier said than done, but anyone who is not an NPC – anyone who feels a sense of self and has conscious information being processed in their brain – is capable of changing the course of history if they have the will to do so.
The will to power, if you will.
It makes me very happy that Trump posted this, as I do want him to play the role of Inspiring-Father-Figure-in-Chief.
My main goal for this website is to draw as many young men in as possible and convince them to make themselves into great men in order to change the world. That is what this is all about. I want each and every one of you to lead successful lives and have an impact on the shape of the reality in which we reside.
Not every man can be Donald Trump. But every man can lead a life of meaning by becoming a part of something bigger than himself.
