Walt Disney has always been a major inspiration in my life. From his little nuggets of wisdom to his amazing life story – it’s someone who I truly admire.
Walt didn’t have an easy life and he didn’t allow that to become an excuse. He pushed forward, failed miserably, lost it all (Oswald!) — but he would just get up and keep going. He always talked about his failures too, which is what I love the most.
Walt Disney never forgot those failures because he understood that it was what molded him into the person he was. He learned from mistakes and then tried again.
Whenever I need some motivation my first thing to do is search inspiring words said by Walt. It reminds me that we are all human and allowed to fail. That we must just keep trying and find new ways to do things.
It never fails to remind me that we can all do the impossible. We just have to get up and do it. That’s why my favorite quote will also be this one:
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing” — Walt Disney
There is so much truth in that one line. We can’t expect things to just happen. He was a man that believe that you much always dream, but he knew it took a bit more than just dreaming. It takes hard work.
With today being Walt Disney’s birthday, we wanted to celebrate by doing something special. Nick and I decided to create 2 prints with our favorite quotes from Walt himself to put in our office. It will the perfect reminder to keep working hard. ;)
You can also purchase the print in his Etsy shop for $9.99. It’s fun way to remind yourself to pursue those dreams!
Happy birthday, Walt!
