Thick Skin

If you want to be President of the United States of America, you have to have or quickly develop a thick skin.  This is an area where I feel Mr. Trump has serious room for improvement.  Between the free press, the opposing political party and foreign governments both friendly and not so much so; everyone will be looking for mistakes, weaknesses and targets of opportunity.
            So what does one do to develop a thick skin if one doesn’t already have one?  First, you can’t wear your emotions on your sleeve.  Second, you need to get over yourself and accept when you make mistakes.  Third, you need to learn from your mistakes.  Fourth, you need to learn to filter out comments that aren’t constructive.  Fifth you need to control your temper...perhaps counting to 10 isn’t such a bad idea.  Sixth, you need to learn to filter what comes out of your mouth.  If every thought that enters your brain exits your mouth you won’t do well in politics. 

            So is it too late or can Mr. Trump thicken his skin and keep himself from lashing out at his critics?  Time will tell and the clock is definitely ticking.
