This weekend, the world will recognize and celebrate one of the most creative animators and entrepreneurs in history. Saturday, December 5th marks what would have been the 114th birthday of one of my own inspirational heroes, Walt Disney.
The products of Disney’s innate desire to create, such as the iconic character Mickey Mouse, still elicit a sense of nostalgia in all of us today.
But it is not only the products of his imagination that bring so many of us to admire Disney. The positive outlook he kept on life and a ‘dream it, do it’ attitude is something we can all thrive on in life and work.
In Disney’s own words:
“When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.”
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
Just a few days before his 114th birthday, as his imaginative legacy lives on, Walt Disney still reminds us that, “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
