Beliefs for success

Are you finding yourself in a spiral?  Is a growth or death spiral?


Either growing or dying, life is usually about consistently taken actions.  What are the actions you are taking?  How are they supporting your outcomes? The following is everyone's story.  Your facts might change and where it ends might change, but the experiences are so common as to almost lose their meaning, unless you learn the lesson and take charge of your success.


Elias D. was born on December 5, 1901, after being rejected by the army in 1911 and driving around in europe, Elias and a partner made a deal with a local Kansas City theater to screen their cartoons, which they called Laugh-O-Grams. The cartoons were hugely popular, and he was able to acquire his own studio, upon which he bestowed the same name. Laugh-O-Gram hired a number of employees. 

They did a series of seven-minute fairy tales that combined both live action and animation, which they called Alice in Cartoonland. By 1923, however, the studio had become burdened with debt, and Elias was forced to declare bankruptcy.

A few years later, with another company, Elias discovered that some of his employees had stolen the rights to one of his creations. 

Right away Elias and one of his brothers sprang to action and moved on beyond that challenge, as the film industry changed and grew, so did Elias.  Yeah, you've heard of him and you have seen his work. You might love him or dislike him, but he was successful and worth modeling, when it cames to getting back on track. 

You might know him better as Walt Disney.  And did you know this part of his story?  Does it reflect any of your life story?

Do you consider him a success?  Will you be satisfied with your life as others review it and learn from it?

We have the tools and the knowledge that we need.  Let's put them to work.
