“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
This is my all-time favorite quote. Walt Disney is a great example of an everyday, ordinary person, who achieved his grand dreams and still leaves his legacy today. If you ever receive an email from me, my signature always ends with this quote–because I live by it. We all have grand dreams just like Walt, but the first step to achieving your dreams is believing in yourself. You truly can do anything that you dream of.
If you’re interested in reading more about Walt Disney and how he went from ordinary to extraordinary, you should check out the book, How to Be Like Walt: Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life, by Pat Williams.
This book actually inspired me to follow my own dreams and take the big leap into starting a business. We’ll see where it takes me! This was a great book, with just the right amount of details on Walt’s life and vision to inspire a dreamer to follow in his footsteps. The book was sprinkled with many valuable lessons like, Lesson 1: Live the Adventure, and Lesson 3: Dare to Do the Impossible. The combination of lessons followed by stories of Walt using these lessons in his life, made it engaging, easy-to-follow and very inspiring. Although this book is a biography, I feel that it is far more. It’s an inspirational and motivational book that makes you feel like you can do anything that your heart desires.
