Michael Vance, creative director of Disney World in Orlando was asked: “Isn’t it a shame that Walt Disney didn’t live to see this?” “He did see it,” Vance said, “and that is precisely why we are here today!” Before every great undertaking, someone has a vision.  The army commander, a strategy.  The football coach, a game plan.  The artist, a picture in the  mind’s eye. In business, too many are following schedules, attending meetings, anxiously responding to cell phones, and other urgencies.  They are dominated by routine, often trivial activities.  Something’s missing.

It is important to be a self-learner, because change in the world is accelerating.

We must become self-learners.  These steps will help you increase your knowledge: Read.

Effectiveness Can Be Learned We often think leaders and executives possess high intelligence, extreme creativity and stunning imagination, but these qualities are not in short supply.  Nor are they the most important qualities of executives. Whether executives work in government, business, hospitals, churches, universities or the military, they’re expected to get things done, and they’re expected to get the right things done. Effectiveness is in short supply in most organizations these days.  Why is that? I don’t know all the reasons, but I know one of the reasons.  If you think about it, you’ll...

Knowledge is power, and knowledge is available to everyone.  If you remain ignorant, you can’t blame anyone but yourself.  How far you climb on the pyramid of achievement is determined to a large extent by your knowledge. Teach your youngsters and impress upon them the importance of knowing their language. You can’t know everything, so where do you start?  Scientific and educational studies show a clear correlation between language skills and achievement of every kind. You may live in the finest home in the most affluent neighborhood, drive the most expensive car, and dress in designer clothes, but...

Desire drives us to pursue our interests.  We won’t go far if our desire doesn’t become a passion for that which we are striving.  Desire and passion create enthusiasm, which energizes us to act. If we attain much in life, action is required.  “So what do we do?” asks automobile executive Lee Iacocca. “Anything.  Something.  So long as we just don’t sit there.  If we screw it up, start over.  Try something else.  If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.” So, what if we fail? Muhammad Ali, world champion and perhaps history’s greatest boxer and...

You Have No Limitations

In America, there are no limits set on your success.  You can do anything. It doesn’t depend on chance or luck; it depends on hard work and persistence.  You can do anything by working at it. You can’t, however, expect to watch television, drink beer, or party with friends every night and find answers to complicated business solutions and the U.S. economy. Success in any undertaking depends on your desire and your attitude.  It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you look like, or where you went to school. You can improve your life and your future, and you don’t have to have a lot of money...
