Walt Disney – Famous for being a pioneer in animation and children’s cartoons, Walt did not have an easy route to success. His first job at Kansas City Star ended in him being fired for lack of imagination and good ideas. His first Mickey Mouse drawings were rejected for being scary for women. Laugh-O-Gram, ended in bankruptcy for Walt, but despite around 302 turn downs he kept fighting and achieved financing for Walt Disney Company; And the rest is history.

Michael Jordan – One of the most famous basketball players in the world, struggled to make a start on his career as a basketball player. No coach would give him the time of day as he was short. Regardless of this, he continued to train, developing the skills he would need to prove his desire to play. After being rejected from his varsity team, he used his disappointment as fuel to prove everyone wrong; he has always said this passion for succeeding contributed to his success.

Five 7 Four Host Workshop on the Power of "Why"
PowerOfWhy

Indiana-Based marketing firm, Five 7 Four, hosted a company-wide workshop, inviting their staff and contractors to think about their “why” before explaining the reasons behind its importance. 

When setting goals, there must be a strong reason ‘why’ to give the target a meaning and a purpose. A strong ‘why’ is what will keep someone motivated when the going gets tough, and it will be the reason why a person succeeds when another person fails. Having a clearly defined ‘why’ is crucial for long-term success because most people fail to achieve their goals when their ‘why’ was too superficial or they didn’t ask enough ‘why’s’ to justify it in the first place and to keep them pushing forward during the hard times.

A person’s ‘why’ can be their best motivator; it is the nonexistent strategy and reason to keep going when everyone and everything around them is telling them to quit.  To other people, an individual’s ‘why’ may sound crazy, but the only thing that matters is that to them, it makes sense. Whatever it may be, the ‘why’ is the strongest thing to push someone through the noise and past the challenge of wanting to give up.

Five 7 Four hosted a company-wide workshop for their staff and contractors, to think about their ‘why’ before setting new goals for 2017. This workshops had great significance in the run-up to the New Year with many people setting resolutions that they will fail to follow through on because they have not put enough thought into why they are making it.

The company coach and mentor individuals to success through regular workshops and seminars. This most recent workshop has been particularly significant as 2016 draws to a close.  Five 7 Four have big company goals for the future, and the workshop was an ideal opportunity to get everyone focussed on the bigger picture of ‘why’ and raring to go when the New Year comes.
