An eight-year-old boy approached an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes and asked: “I understand you’re a very wise man. I’d like to know the secret of life.”
The old man looked down at the youngster and replied:
“I’ve thought about that a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words: The first is to Think. Think about the values you wish to live your life by.
The second is to Believe. Believe in yourself, based on the thinking you’ve done about the values you’re going to live your life by.
The third is to Dream. Dream about the things that can be, based on your belief in yourself and the values you’re going to live by.
The last is to Dare. Dare to make your dreams become reality, based on your belief in yourself and your values.” And with that, Walter E. Disney said to the little boy, “Think, Believe, Dream, and Dare.”
