Five 7 Four share their top examples of how a positive attitude will go a long way towards achieving success:

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.
