Have you ever tried to draw a perfect circle by hand? Try it sometime. You can’t do it. But don’t feel bad. Because nobody else can either. And even if you could, it wouldn’t impress many people. Because most people don’t prefer perfect circles. In fact, it’s almost like the total opposite is true.
One guy, who couldn’t draw a perfect circle, is a perfect example of this.
Walt Disney. You might remember him. If not, you’ve at least heard of his legacy. Disneyland. Disneyworld. Mickey Mouse. Ring any bells?
Mr. Disney had a strong and focused vision. He knew exactly what he wanted to do. And he never let the challenges break his focus or his spirit. I mean, I’m sure he must’ve had his moments of doubt, when he got down to eating dog food (true story). Who wouldn’t?
But Walt kept his eyes on the prize.
And that’s in spite of being told by MGM Studios that a mouse on a giant screen wouldn’t work because it would terrify women. And The Three Little Pigs wouldn’t work because there weren’t enough characters in the cartoon. But in spite of all that, Mickey Mouse became one of the most famous cartoon characters of all time.
And guess what? Those three little pigs were so successful they played in one theater so long that the owner put up a poster of them with long, white beards.
Walt Disney’s biography is a good read for any entrepreneur who’d like some inspiration to keep pushing forward. Because his fame (and his vision) have lasted way beyond his time on Earth.
And he was a guy who couldn’t draw a perfect circle if his life depended on it.
But I wanna circle back (see what I did there?) to that vision part.
I discovered, over 20 years ago, what a crucial role your vision plays in whether or not you’ll be able to stick with it and pursue your dreams. And that’s why I spend a lot of time showing clients and students how to define their vision.
It’s also one of the courses in RondaReady YOUniversity. It’s based on the System I developed way back when. So, there’s over 20 years of proof behind it. Business owners have grown from 5 figure incomes to 6 and from 6 figure incomes to 7. And I created YOUniversity especially to help younger people who are just getting ready to go out into the real world. Because real life requires real skills.
And the best real skills need System Thinking.
If you’d like to find out more about that, I’d love to tell you more. So, book a free call with me. Find a time slot, win the handy calendar, below, that works for you. And let’s talk soon. I promise there’s no part of YOUniversity where you’ll be required to draw a perfect circle.
