 “A clear vision, backed by definite plans, gives you a tremendous feeling of confidence and personal power.” – Brian Tracy

He started as a sales trainee in Iowa. He hated to make his customers wait for anything while he did paperwork. In 1945 he went on his own with only $5000 of his own money and moved to Arkansas.

His landlord wanted to buy his business because it was so successful and he refused to renew his lease when he didn't want to sell.

He hit the rode and looked for another location. He was so bent on not been kicked out again that he insisted on a 99-year lease.

His vision never waned.

At this point, his continued but rapid success prompted him to mortgage absolutely everything that he had on his vision. People around his inner circle said that he was crazy and would be bankrupt.

He pushed forward in spite of criticism and was the first to embrace technology when everyone else was sleeping.

In 1970 he went public and the company exploded.

In 1989 he was diagnosed with bone cancer but that didn’t stop him.

In 1992 he was awarded the Medal of Freedom by the US President.

When he died in 1992, his personal net worth was $25 Billion.

Today the vision that he created in 1945 has generated $514.4 Billion in revenue in 2019 and 2.2 million associates worldwide.

And it all started with a picture.

You know him as Sam Walton a.k.a. Wal-Mart.
