Leading today with a Happy Birthday to Walt Disney.

Born this day, December 5, in 1901.

Everything The Walt Disney Company does has Walt’s DNA embedded in it.

Between my wife and i, we share 63+ Disney years of breathing this in every day.

It’s who we are.

It’s how we think.

It’s what we do.

It’s not for everyone.

The intentionality, the focus, the discipline – too much for many to bear.

For us, it’s oxygen.

The paradox of self-confidence

Disney Customer Service Speakers
Walt Disney…you know he had to be thinking, “What if this doesn’t work?”

 

The paradox of self-confidence is that most (all the ones i know anyway) confident people have a quiet, yet relentless, battle with self-doubt.

You’re only as good as your last presentation, your last race, your last prayer.

No one cares what you did in the past, if what you are currently doing isn’t amazing.

It comes with the territory.

Confidence is like a fire, without constant attention to adding fuel, it will dim and quite quickly, extinguish.
