Valuable Lessons From Disney Movies
On 06 January 2015
Disney movies are immortal. We watched them when we were children, and (let's face it!) we're still watching them. They're fun, entertaining, and touching, but they also teach us valuable life lessons.
Even Walt Disney's life shows us an important lesson : he worked at a newspaper and was fired by the editor because "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas". After this failure, Disney started a number of businesses that didn’t last too long and ended with bankruptcy and failure. But he didn't stop, he followed his dream and now his name and his success story are known all over the world.
“Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” – Merchant in “Aladdin”
Often we tend to judge someone by his appearance. And I don't say that the way you look is not important, but there are amazing things that you can find out about someone if you give them a real chance. My grandmother used to say "Don't judge a book by its covers" and I think this is totally right. So this lesson is about no judgment until you get to know someone.
"The seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake." - Sebastian in "The Little Mermaid"
We always want what we can't have, but this doesn't mean that it is better than what we have. It's good to always want more, but the most important thing is to appreciate what we have and be happy with it.
“When life gets you down do you wanna know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming!” – Dory, from "Finding Nemo"
Never, ever give up on something you really want! Even if the waters are agitated and angry, you have to keep on moving. After all, any storm is a challenge to reinvent yourself and then you will be rewarded.
"Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it." - Rafiki, from "The Lion King"
I think you should see your past experiences as very important, even priceless lessons. There is no better teacher than the past, but you have to embrace it and learn from it. This way, you can focus on present and apply all the amazing things you know from your past.
“You got your own style, now let it come through. And remember no matter what, you got to be you.” – Sebastian, from "The Little Mermaid"
You have to accept yourself, and for sure people will like you more if you'll be yourself. Self-confidence is sexy!
