“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney
If there is one aspect of Walter Elias “Walt” Disney’s life that has stuck with me since my early childhood it would certainly be the believe in reaching for your dreams. These dreams are individual, specific, and unique for each person. Many of us know a portion of his story, and typically we focus more on the end picture of what we know about Walt. A successful animator, business man, voice actor, and film producer. We grew up either watching him on the television or watching the movies either he or his corporation made. Truth is though, the final product is a far walk from his humble beginnings in Chicago back in 1901.
There are so many things in our lives that we have little or no control over. Things that affect our families, our finances, and our geography. We must all strive to reach within ourselves and remember our dreams. Find the things in our lives that we truly want to see in our daily lives. One of the definition of dreams is “a cherished aspiration, ambition or ideal”. Another definition is “a person or thing perceived as wonderful or perfect”. What is it that comes to your mind?
Part of the magic of Walt Disney World’s theme parks and resorts is their ability to transport each of us in our own imagination to a place where we recall our dreams, or consider new ones. During a recent visit to Epcot, while walking past a construction barrier we noticed a sign with a quote from Walt.
Stated so simply and so genuine to Walt’s beliefs, the magic of the Walt Disney World is that it does allow us to see another world. Do you remember those feelings when you last visited? Keeping those feelings alive and moving forward each and every day after we return to our homes is a difficult challenge. For I belived it is at those times when we are lost in Walt Disney World that we can see our dreams much clearer. It is through everyday life that it becomes harder to see, more difficult to imagine.
“All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
