Leave Fear Behind

WALT DISNEY - Leave Fear Behind

Disney was truly a dreamer as he came from humble beginnings in Chicago, rising to become one of the world’s most famous Americans.

The power and promise of dreaming is evident, not only throughout Walt Disney’s life, but long after his death in 1966.

In his quotation, Disney mentions courage as an integral precursor to bringing dreams to fruition - "if you have the guts to go after what you want, you can make your dreams happen."

The incredible, depth, breadth, and reach into the future of Walt Disney’s dreams are true testaments to what can happen if you pursue your dreams.

Christopher Reeve - Make Your Dream Inevitable

The above quote of Reeve’s carries a powerful message to all who dare to dream.

Reeve points out that when a dream first enters your mind, it might seem ludicrous to even think it could come to pass. Later, down the road, it seems not likely that it could ever happen. Ultimately, though, if you determine by your own personal choice that you will make your dream happen, you’ll see your end result is “inevitable.”

Have faith that you’re supposed to be doing what you’ve chosen.

Regardless of whether you believe in destiny or prefer to listen to your gut: what does your internal “trust-meter” tell you to do? 

If you continue in the pursuits you have faith in, you won’t be disappointed.

Circumstances don’t control your future. Refuse to allow your personal situation to color your sense of who you truly are or what you can accomplish.

You must do something related to your goals if you want to achieve them.

How to Apply Pablo Picasso’s Tip to Your Life!

For your big goals, divide them into small, achievable steps that will lead you ever forward until you’ve accomplished your biggest desires.

It’s much easier to take action when you only have a small mini-goal to work on.

However, achieving these small goals one by one will bring great success.

For example, if you have a goal to lose 30 pounds, you can do this in 30 weeks by losing a pound a week. Each week, focus only on losing 1 pound. This is a goal you can achieve.

ACTION TIME: 

1.   Important Goal > Mini Goals

2. Mini Goals > Even shorter Steps

3.   Take your first step today.

Ayn Rand: Recognize Opportunity

Ayn's description of success being a ladder is apt because, in order to be successful, one must notice and take advantage of many opportunities throughout life.

Her quote illustrates that each opportunity leads to another step up to the next opportunity.

 

Rand’s quote implies it’s rare to go from nothing to success in one step. Instead, you’re led to succeed through the opportunities you notice and take advantage of.

It’s best not to expect success to come all at once with little time or effort.
