Don’t let disappointment derail your dreams or let life get in the way of your progress

Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” Starting with the love of animation, he parlayed his passion into a mega-empire, but neither the enduring cartoon characters nor the series of theme parks he developed were an easy ride to the Magic Kingdom or Mickey Mouse ventures.

Here’s his story…

After working as a commercial artist, Disney became fascinated with animation. Using a camera lent to him by his employer, he experimented at home with animation techniques and soon opened his own animation studio. He negotiated a deal with the local theater owner in Kansas City to run his cartoons and became a local celebrity. Due to high costs and poor money management, his studio went bankrupt. He moved to Hollywood, California to set up a new studio, where characters such as Mickey Mouse were born, and where, due to his creativity and drive, he and his staff pioneered great advances in sound and color technology and cinematography. He made his mark in animation, movies, theme parks, and more.

Though Disney had some setbacks in his career and personal life, along with the Great Depression and World War II, he managed to use failures and disappointments as a launching pad for advancement.  Walt Disney did what all successful business people must do:

He summed up his philosophy in this quote:

“Somehow I can’t believe there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C’s. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.”

Are you following your dreams or just dreaming?

Many entrepreneurs and business owners start off their businesses and careers with big dreams, but get sidetracked before achieving much of anything. Others start out, and when disappointments and failures come, they get discouraged and may settle for the path of least resistance instead of getting back on the road to success. Many others pursue their dreams, but never quite see them fulfilled as they hope because they become preoccupied with distractions.

You may ask yourself “why is this? Why does it seem so much easier to pursue things that will take you away from reaching your goals or from being as successful as you could be? Are you lazy or unmotivated? Or are some of the distractions things you need to attend to in your life?“ For example, your family requires some time, and you want to maintain relationships and play a role in bringing up your children, and in cases of a medical or other emergency, may require a major commitment of your time and other resources. The same could be said for attending to your health or pursuing other passions you have.

Is the only secret to success ridding yourself of all “distractions”? Or is there another, more satisfying way that will allow you to doggedly pursue your professional dreams while keeping your life in balance too?

“When I was originally seeking someone to hold me accountable, I had thought it would be for my business goals; however, when I received the starting package from Anne I realized we would be focusing on all areas of my life—what a nice surprise!  I have learned so much in the last 4 months while working with Anne.  She has challenged me to look at things in a different way, and to work to find true balance.  I have never felt so in control of my life and where I am going as I do right now! “

Your goals for success are not just about business

As a Business and Life Coach, I am convinced that you can have a balanced life that is prosperous, fulfilled, and happy. Even if you try to separate your personal and professional life, you have a better chance of fulfilling your goals if you factor both sides into your plans.

The reasoning here is simple. If you don’t realistically consider your personal and business needs in the plans you make for yourself, you will feel guilty when you don’t get a report done because you had to attend to a child who got sick at “crunch time.” You will get burned out if you do nothing but work. You will make excuses because you decided to take an unplanned afternoon off. You put things off. You find yourself unable to distinguish between time wasters and legitimate things you should explore for business and personal growth.

What is the alternative? If you don’t factor other life variables into your business equation, you may take the time you need, but have consequences to pay. On the other hand, if you plan for contingencies, you will learn to set goals based on your personal priorities and apply to effective time management strategies that will allow you to get the work done more efficiently.

“With Anne’s help, no excuses attitude and amazing ability to see through the fog of my own distractions, I have not only achieved one of the goals I was most afraid to set, but actually exceeded it. My personal life has flourished because my professional life has structure and boundaries. Anne has helped me discover through objective questioning and a judgment free attitude what I really want out of my life.  She has become a cheerleader, a sounding board and an inspiring coach.”

– Mona Santos, First Command Financial Services

“I originally signed on with Anne to help me get more focused on my business, and yes she has helped me do that. But the biggest value I have gotten from her is in my quality-of-life. My marriage is better, my physical health is better, I am more focused on the spiritual aspects of my life, my relationships with my children and friends are better, and I am just having more fun than ever before!”

-Don VanLandingham, CPA/PFS, Guardian Wealth Management

Anne’s Work/Life Balance Emergency Kit offers a comprehensive approach to planning your life that will save you time, money, and effort. You will find that when you put it all together, your business life, and other areas of life will come together for you.  For example…

“I hired Anne as my coach to help me develop and execute a plan which would give me financial freedom and create a rewarding everyday life. Her process has completely restructured the way I focus my attention so I can achieve my goals. I am amazed how her coaching has streamlined my plan in only a few months.  She has a unique gift to help others achieve their highest potential.”

-Andy Core, MS, Author and Speaker on Health, Work-Life Balance and Maximizing Human Performance

“There are not many people I can point to that I credit my success and financial independence to, but Anne you are one. Based upon my experience and success through the accountability coaching I received from you, every major goal in my life has come to pass. From building up a multi-million dollar business to losing 140 pounds of excess weight, your “no-nonsense encouragement” was the key to maintaining my momentum, even (especially) during times of discouragement.  You told me what I needed to hear, not just what I wanted to hear, and encouraged me to change goals when it was clear I wasn’t willing to make the effort required of a goal. In the end, the “secret ingredient” of success, for me, was accountability. Why it is that I don’t always do the things I know I need to do to succeed is irrelevant, the key was finding someone like you, Anne, who didn’t care about my excuses. You cared only for me and were the advocate for the goals I said I wanted. How can I ever thank you?”

-Mark McKenna Little
