Walt Disney, Michael Jordan and Colonel Sanders

What do Walt Disney, Michael Jordan and Colonel Sanders all have in common?  They each had huge dreams for their lives and before each one could see their dreams come true they had setbacks that stood in the way of achieving their dreams.

The two most important things to learn from these guys are

1. You need to have dreams, not just dreams of going to Steak-n-Shake on Saturday but big dreams.  As Donald Trump says “As long as you are going to be thinking anyways think big!” 
2.  What you need to learn from those three guys is, never quit.  All three had disappointment on their way to achieving their goals and dreams.  They didn’t quit they kept going step by step until they reached their goal.  Walt Disney said “if you can dream it you can do it”

I know it is hard to keep going when things go wrong but that is what separates the average person from the successful person.  I am not where I want to be at this point in my life.  I let all kinds of distractions side track me from my goals and dreams, but just because I lost focus for a little bit I never gave up on my dreams.  Each day I take another step towards all of my goals and dreams.  I know it will not be easy because there will still be plenty of mishaps that get in the way. 

A great book to read is “A Setback is a Setup for a Comeback” by Willie Jolley.  That book will give you great examples of people overcoming adversity and will also outline steps that you can start today that will change your life forever.

Well I hope for my first real post that I gave you something to think about and you find it worthwhile.  As you can probably tell I love motivational quotes and books so guess what most of my post will be.  I just think that having a positive attitude is crucial in obtaining success.  Every day we deal with negative in our day to day lives which can lower our moral.  The more positive we hear and see the better our attitudes and lives will become.

Wishing you the best!
