Good Morning: The Four “Cs”

"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was
all started by a mouse." Walt Disney

Good morning! 

How I would have loved to have known or met Walt Disney. Every time
I visit Orlando, I walk through the exhibit on his life and the
story of his parks. For those who don't know, Mickey Mouse was born

are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest
of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all

pursue our own dreams, let us remember the importance of:

Curiosity - Ask questions, push the envelope, dream big
Confidence - Believe in yourself and your vision, no matter what
others think Courage - Work through fear instead of being blocked

quotes, "It's kind of fun to do the impossible."

Your turn:
Write down these 4c's on a notecard or sticky-note and put it where
you will see it daily. Work on applying these principles to your
dreams on a daily basis.

Your affirmation:
I engage my dreams with curiosity, confidence, courage and
