Walt Disney once said ?just remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse?if you can dream it you can do it.?
There is no doubt that Disney passed through many valleys on his way to creating a Disney Dynasty. One of his first ventures called Laugh-O-Grams ended in bankruptcy. He took what he learned from that experience in the Midwest, and with his suitcase and $20 dollars in his pocket he headed for Hollywood. It took him several years to become established in Hollywood?yet he had a dream and he followed it?and he succeeded beyond measure.
Now let?s pretend for a moment that Disney was someone who was easily discouraged and had low self-esteem. He could have been so discouraged from the ?failure? of the bankruptcy of his business; that he gave up the ?silly? cartoon idea in favor of a ?real job.? He could have beat himself up every day? telling himself he was weak, not smart enough, didn?t measure up to others and lived in a self induced depression. His only goal could have been to ?just get through another day? no dream?no goal? sort of like living out the movie, Groundhog Day, where the same frustrating day repeats itself over and over again.
What do you choose?
- #1 To accept that you will make mistakes, sometimes feel uncomfortable, endure some humiliation or feelings of inadequacy?yet pick yourself up and go for your goals and dreams?
- #2 To settle for a safe existence and avoid changes as much as possible?
From my experience, #2 is much more painful, frustrating and lacks rewards.
To live a meaningful life we need to take some chances?we need to allow ourselves to fail and make mistakes (lots of them). Failure is feedback and that?s how we learn and grow.
Are you sick of feeling bad, feeling embarrassed and making excuses for why you are still doing the same things?still fat, still smoking, still avoiding relationships, not pursuing your dreams? Have you tried hypnosis or NLP?
Hypnosis and NLP are excellent tools to help you eliminate negative behaviors, habits and limiting beliefs that have stopped you in your tracks. Is there a Disney within you that?s waiting to be released???
