Do You Have the Self-Belief to Fly Like Dumbo?

For a few weeks now, we've been looking at a range of personal qualities that are at the heart of self-development. We've already shown you the importance of Integrity, marvelled at the quality of Persistence, and looked at healing Resentment. This week, we come to one of the biggies: Self-belief, a quality that has the potential to change your life and fortunes. In our feature, we use a most unlikely but magical story to illustrate self-belief, the story of the flying elephant from Walt Disney's 1941 film, "Dumbo"... more

Experience the Power of One-Line Learning with Your Free "Hints, Tips, and Tricks for Modern Managers" Book


When we put together our collection of management training materials, we knew that not everyone learns in the same way. Some people like to read a well-argued article, some like to discuss things with others and some like to try things out. There are also many people who like to start with an idea. They can then take the idea and test it out in practice before adopting it as valid for their needs. This approach is why we created 2000 one-liners in our "Hints, Tips, and Tricks for Modern Managers" e-book. Try 300 examples of one-liners in the free sampler here... more
