I hadn’t heard the following story until recently, but it’s really an inspiration.  If I find myself in a situation that seems completely dark and hopeless (believe me, it’s been happening quite a bit lately), I think about this story and the lessons within it; I always seem to feel a little brighter and more positive after reading it.  I hope you will get something from it too.

 

An eight-year old boy walked up to an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes, and asked:

“I understand you’re a very wise man.  I’d like to know the secret of life.”

The old man looked down at the kid and said:

“I’ve thought a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words.

The first is think.  Think about the values by which you want to live your life.

The second is believe.  Believe in yourself based on the thinking you’ve done about the values you’re going to live your life by.

The third is dream. Dream about the things that can be, based on your belief in yourself and the values you’re going to live by.

The last is dare.  Dare to make your dreams become reality, based on your belief in yourself and your values.”

And with his statement, Walt Disney said to the little boy,

Think, Believe, Dream and Dare.
