Can you remember a time during your childhood when you got so excited about an event like your birthday, Christmas, summer or a winter vacation or a fishing and/or camping trip that you couldn’t sleep the night before because of excitement?
Were you ever so excited that you could taste the birthday cake or could visualize ripping the paper off a very special present that you were hoping to receive? What about just running carefree in a field during a summer morning imagining one dream after another? I sure can. I did it often as a child.
I love meeting wise and successful people because I actually crave learning about their personals principles of success.
One common trait that I have discovered most continuously successful people possess is the ability to daydream and visualize in great detail the achievement of goals and how the results would affect them, their family and others in a positive way. They dream without limitations like a child.
The most successful people have the ability to dream realistic dreams like a child. Walt Disney is a great example of a successful person with the ability to see details of his dreams with the excitement of a child.
The following often told story about Walt Disney during the early planning days of Disney World exemplifies his ability to visualize in great detail.
One day as the design team met in their California “war room” Walt grew more and more irritated because everyone was thinking “way too small” and felt they were limiting what they could create. Finally, he had enough and erupted in the room.
“The trouble is that you aren’t thinking far enough ahead! We are just beginning! You have to think beyond Disney World! We haven’t even begun to think big enough.”
That is the kind of vision Walt Disney had. History reminds us that even though he envisioned Disney World in Florida, he never lived long enough to see it opened. On the Opening Day in 1971, someone commented to Mike Vance, creative director of Walt Disney Studios “Isn’t it too bad Walt Disney didn’t live to see this?” (Walt passed away 5 years before WDW opened to the public)
Vance replied simply, “He did see it…that’s why it’s here.”
If you haven’t reached the level of success you desire in your life and business maybe you should revert to thinking and dreaming like you may have done as a child when there were no limitations.
Live2Lead Chattanooga may be exactly what you need to help you make a shift.

The possibilities of victory lie not within your dreams. It lies with the people you get to influence on the journey.

The best way I know to learn how to be a more successful leader is by learning from highly successful leaders, leaders that have accomplished what some may categorize as impossible. Live2Lead Chattanooga is a simulcast live streamed from Atlanta, Georgia by the John Maxwell Company designed to help you make a shift and become a transformational leader.
My mentor, the legendary leadership guru and author of over seventy books on leadership, John Maxwell states, "Leadership is influence-nothing more, nothing less." Unfortunately, the primary influence for many leaders is limited to the workplace...
Living in the moment is a way of life for me now. It is just one aspect of successful living that I describe as AE Success Life. Once I was so caught up in climbing the corporate ladder and later building and growing my own business that I put living in the moment on hold. I was waiting until I reached the summit of each to enjoy living. I missed so much that life had to offer.
One of Greg’s mentors in the book, Three Feet From Gold shared the following information about the power of the mastermind : “…We believe that your are a direct reflection of the five people you associate with most, and your income, attitude, and lifestyle is the average of those five people. If you surround yourself with leaders, you will eventually become one too.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of interviewing Gary Guller on Motivation Here Special Edition. Gary shared his principles of success and strategies for overcoming adversity with an audience stretching from the East Coast to the West Coast and countries from around the globe. He truly shared top of the world inspiration and motivation.
