What do Seinfeld and Disney have in common?

Have you ever been tired tyring to reach the top?

If you said yes, this is a good thing.  Most people work so hard on their dreams only to find themselves tired and wanting to give up that they wonder "what's the use?".
This is only a test, life throws tests at you all the time.  When things are going great, you never want to give up.  The true test is when you get tired, and when your tired it's time to decide you are never giving up.
Every great success wanted to give up at one time in their lives, lets' look at Walt Disney-

Disney rakes in billions from merchandise, movies and theme parks around the world, but Walt Disney himself had a bit of a rough start. He was fired by a newspaper editor because, "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas." After that, Disney started a number of businesses that didn't last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. He kept plugging along, however, and eventually found a recipe for success that worked.

I'm sure at some point Walt wanted to quit, can you imagine if he did?  Your childhood would never have been the same.  You would have never been introduced to characters like Donlad Duck and Mickey Mouse.  You would have never gotten to go to Walt Disney World either.  If you've never been there put it on your goal list it's amazing!

If you never wanted to give up on your way to your dream, your aiming much to low. Dream big, you have it in you to succeed.

Jerry Seinfeld is another person that probably wanted to quit, can you imagine if he did.
The first time the young comedian walked on stage, he looked out at the audience, froze and was eventually jeered and booed off of the stage. Seinfeld knew he could do it, so he went back the next night, completed his set to laughter and applause, and the rest is history. 
Most of us would have hidden and never tried again.  But now most of us can quote any Seinfield episode. 

Jerry has determination and so should you.  Realize you are tired and strained from trying to reach your goal.  This is the point when others quit and walk away.  If you quit and start walking away you will never know if you could be the greatest the world has ever seen.

Today's action:

1.  Stop looking at the big picture, it's much to overwhelming.
2.  Look only at what you can do day by day.  Your don't have the mental or physical strength to do more than 24 hours at a time.
3.  Know what direction you are headed.  All you need is to know where you want to go.

Stay motivated
