And, it’s also true that many were told that they would never amount to anything at all, by friends, colleagues, family and/or peers. The difference was that they believed that they could achieve their goals and worked extremely diligently to do so. Walt Disney who created Disneyland in the USA is a prime example of an individual who never gave up on his dreams. His belief in himself (and others) was profound and inspirational, to say the least.
Of course, we’d all like to know the “magical” secret to success, but the real reality is that there are actually so many different factors that must be taken into account, to what makes one a truly successful human being. It’s definitely true that hard work and dedication are so important in reaching success. But there’s more to success than just plugging away, day after day. Maintaining a focus-driven mindset is pivotal, and can be the difference between success and failure, especially in the long-term.
