How To Realize Your Dreams: 4 Principles
In the original
Chicken Soup for the Soul,
Jack Canfield tells the story of Monty, who was the son of an itinerant
horse trainer of little means.
During his senior year he was
assigned a writing project to describe what he wanted to be when he grew
up. His seven-page essay minutely detailed the 200-acre ranch he wanted

Disney Creativity Strategy
Walt Disney was true genius at turning
fantasies into reality.
Here is how Walt Disney describes his process
for creating stories: "The story man must see clearly in his own mind how
every piece of business in a story will be put. He should feel every
expression, every reaction. He should get far enough away from his story to

the Founder of IBM
Tom Watson, the founder of IBM, once described his
secret to the unbelievable success he helped to create. The IBM you see today began from one simple
technique. It is something you and I can do
at any place and time. The same method Tom Watson used to grow IBM into a
billion-dollar enterprise is available to you.4
He saw a picture in his mind. Before his
company began operating, he knew exactly what it would look like when it was
complete. The picture in his mind was as vivid and clear as the words you
see on the screen in front of you.
He could see the offices, the machines, the
employees working busily accomplishing goals and setting new standards. He
could see the satisfied customers as they shook hands with his associates.
Tom Watson could see the office he would
making vital decisions to help his dream progress.
Tom Watson knew exactly what he was going to
create. It was already real to him, he simply had to show the rest of the
world what was in his mind. And it all began as a picture, a visualization.
