Walt Disney Quotes Inspire Us to Dream Big and Find Success

One of Walt Disney’s most famous quotes is hanging on a plaque inside my home. It’s the essence of having a dream. “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

Walt Disney inspired us to dream big. He talked a lot about having dreams and being courageous enough to pursue them.

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them,” he said. “When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do. And one thing it takes to accomplish something is courage.”

The great animation pioneer knew the hallmark of finding something great. He had a vision and he created a lasting legacy for future generations.

It all began with a mouse but today we go inside castles, fall in love with princes and make magic with wizards. Walt Disney still inspires us. “Animation offers a medium of storytelling and visual entertainment which can bring pleasure and information to people of all ages everywhere in the world,” he said.

There are magical holograms, 3-dimensional characters and traditional family values which inspire us in Disney movies.

In a place “Where Dreams Come True,” Disney’s grand theme parks are known worldwide and referred to as theHappiest Place on Earth.” Why; because the beauty which sprouts Disney is for all ages; from the young imaginative minds to the older innovative generations.

People are encouraged by Disney.“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality,” he said.

Every child dreams of a fairytale place where they can be anybody they wish. Disney brought these dreams to life. Nearly every child knows a Disney character and the magic it carries in this fantastic world of make-believe. For adults, perhaps it’s a world of escape which carries us away from our problems. We don’t usually look at our problems as opportunities. In fact, we would prefer to escape them and the obstacles that stand in our way.

All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles have strengthened me,” Disney said. “You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”

Walt Disney started making animated cartoons in 1920. Since then the progress of technology and animation has turned simple line drawings into high-definition and 3-D models. Talk about illustrative purposes. To dream or not to dream!

Disney said, “A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.”

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing,” he said.
