I love Disney for so many reasons, especially his fearless pursuit of his dreams. He spent his life chasing his dreams, bringing them to life for others, and championing the importance of dreaming big. These four motivational quotes from the biggest dreamer of them all inspire me to stay true to my hopes and dreams no matter how old I am. They have helped me stay strong during some of my darkest days and pursue my writing dreams.
I see the enchantment and magic of dreams in each of my children’s eyes when we step through the gates onto Main Street, Magic Kingdom.
4 Motivational Quotes from Walt Disney
When we think of Disney, we immediately think about “making wishes upon a star” and reaching for the magic. Walt Disney created amusement “worlds” that transport visitors into the ultimate dreamer’s wishes made true. Visiting Disney World is proof that aiming for the impossible is F.U.N.
I want my children to always explore life. I want them to take the time to see the magic hiding around the corner. Like Disney says, “we keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we are curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” I don’t want fear of the unknown to hinder them from reaching their full potential.
I want them to learn the lesson that Disney teaches millions of people– “all of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” Whether it is simply the courage to take the first steps towards a new slide, to reach up and hug a giant mouse, or make a leap of faith into a whole new life, all it takes is one step towards having all of our dreams come true.
So whether or not they have the confidence to believe in their own dreams, I want them to learn that the only “way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
