≈ Let the dream be larger than anything else. ≈

Walt Disney did not immediately find success. In fact, Disney wanted to become a newspaper artist but was fired from his first newspaper job because his boss felt that he lacked imagination.  He then decided to launch early businesses based on animation only to have those businesses fail and put him into bankruptcy. At this point Walt Disney had been fired, had failed at business, could barely pay rent, and had no money for food. So what did he then decide to do? Move to Hollywood and start a new business. At every point of failure his dream became larger and larger. It was almost as if failure fueled the size of his dream. Generations of children and adults alike have been the beneficiaries of this perseverance. 

It is the rare individual who does not get derailed by failure. It is the unique individual whose dreams become larger and larger over time. What can you do this week to increase the size of your dream? Are you going to let your past failures keep you from maximizing your potential in life? Seize the day this week my friends and whether it is trading, entrepreneurial activities or personal growth take steps this week to becoming the best version of you possible.
