Here’s what I really want to do: Get a bunch of creatives/storytellers/makers together, and create brilliant and beautiful stories. Then radically succeed and pay everyone a lot of money to do it all again, but more and different.
That’s not a lot to ask, right?

Walter E. Disney was an average artist and a mediocre businessman.
He succeeded because he possessed 3 beliefs:
- Belief in hard work — Since his middle school days, Walt worked every odd job he could find. He was never not working, and brought that work ethic to bear when he ventured out on his own.
- Belief in tomorrow — Walt had an irrepressibly optimistic spirit, and always believed that whatever project he was working on would turn out … or that the next one would. He relentlessly threw himself at challenge after challenge because he genuinely believed he would succeed.
- Belief in quality — He was working in a crowded field when he started, and determined that the factor which would set his studio’s work apart from the others was quality. He was right.
He worked hard, he believed he would succeed, and he focused on quality. And he changed the face of animation and became a legend for generations of children.
All that without “talent.”
What do you believe in?

I could rant about any one of these for a WHILE.
