Envisioning Success

Hello guys,

Jack Canfield the bestselling author of ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ famously has said that envisioning success before it happened – was the one thing that helped him stay motivated to achieve it.

Here are some more famous and not-so-famous real life examples of individuals who envisioned success before they got there — and the barriers they faced on route.

• ‘Nobody will watch a show about nothing…’ — what Jerry Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David were first told when they began to pitch Seinfeld.

• ‘There’s no market for it. If there were, major airlines would already be offering it…’ — conclusion given to Fred Smith, founder of FEDEX.

• ‘People will rent videotapes, but they’ll never buy them…’ –opinion of media experts later proved wrong by Jane Fonda’s exercise tapes.

• ‘A global, twenty-four-hour news network will never work…’ — network executives’ response to Ted Turner’s plans for CNN.

• ‘It’s a cutthroat business, you’ve got no chance of success…’ — accountant for Estee Lauder, founder of the multibillion dollar cosmetics empire.

• ‘You’re foolish to try and sell sparkling water in the land of Coca-Cola drinkers…’ — advice given to Gustave Leven by several consulting firms when hearing of his plans to launch Perrier in the US.

• ‘It’s a huge risk and it will never fly…’ — aeronautical engineers evaluation of Bill Lear’s design for a jet.

• ‘Personal computers are a hobbyist fad…’ – prediction of IBM, Intel, HP and Atari.

The moral being….

…by using this simple technique of clearly picturing and visualizing what you want — and then TAKING ACTION – huge changes to your personal situation can be achieved.

But you need to do BOTH.

And let me quickly add that this envisioning success is not some mumbo jumbo: Fortune 500 companies train their sales people using these exact strategies.

To your success,
kenny
