‘Think, believe, dream and dare.’ Walt Disney
There is an attitude that sets apart the mediocre from the majestic. It is called the success attitude.
Did you know that when Walt headed west to pursue his dream, that he sold his possessions – even his camera, to purchase a First Class train ticket, because he wanted to arrive first class? Now that is success attitude exemplified.
Success attitudes don’t arrive once you’ve achieved success. Success attitudes must be present in the midst of your failure or your disaster.
These are the attitudes that will sustain you, and equip you to handle success when it suddenly appears, seemingly out of nowhere, for all to see.
So let’s have a closer look at the 4 success attitudes.
To think is to drink from the very depths of your soul. To think is hard work and that is why so few do it. To think is to sink your dream-teeth into the depths of your imagination.
This is where plans are made. This is where dreams are laid. This is where visions are displayed.
Blueprints of your future are forged during these times of focused thinking.
To pinpoint that thinking I have always found it essential to thrust those thoughts into the page. For there they are captured and held prisoner for future reflection and initiation.
The recording of your thoughts forges a foundation for the creation of future edifices that will be formed by applying massive action.
My old friend Napoleon Hill summed up these first two concepts when he wrote ‘What the mind of man can conceive (think) and believe, he can achieve.’
Believe your thoughts. Be convinced by your ideas.
Before being a published author or a successful entrepreneur I had to believe in myself long before anyone else did.
Belief saves you from grief and gives you relief – protecting you from the thief of unbelief.
When you believe you can receive.
Belief beneath – to the depths of your inner man – will sustain you and carry you past all the naysayers and the dream stealers who say it can never be done and it will never happen.
Don’t believe what you hear. Believe what you have already buried deep within your heart.
While you’re dreaming, don’t dream miniscule dreams. Dream dreams that are of maxiscule proportions.
Go on dream the impossible and the improbably dream!
Don’t dream ordinary. Dream extraordinary Dream beyond. Dream above. Dream while you’re wide-awake. Write your dream. Speak your dream/ Do your dream. Align your dream with your passion and watch a love affair ignite.
Even though I have entered my fifth decade on planet earth I still ask myself the question, ‘what do I dream of doing when I grow up?’
Never lose the wonder of a child, nor the dynamo of a dream in your heart.
I dare you. I dare you to be magnificent, magnanimous and marvelous all wrapped up into one.
Go on. I dare you. I dare you to learn that foreign language. I dare you to run that marathon. I dare you to travel to every nation on the planet. I dare you to be a best-selling author. I dare you to create a musical played on Broadway. I dare you to write the most popular blog on the planet in your niche.
I dare you to be a leader and not just a follower. I dare you to do the unattainable, the unachievable, and the not yet done.
I dare you. I double dare you. I triple dare you to dream a HUMUNGOUS dream.
I dare you to surround yourself with a team of people much smarter than yourself and take notes furiously. I dare you to – in the words of Disney – ‘to wish upon a star’, and watch what wonderful things will come your way throughout the rest of your days.
So here’s a question for you – How are you using these 4 success attitudes to set yourself up for stupendous success?
