The story of Walt Disney is, perhaps, one of the most inspirational stories of all time. While he is considered to be a prominent individual in the American-based animation industry and regarded as one of the most popular cultural icons all throughout the history of the world, he experienced a very challenging start.

When working at a newspaper, his editor fired him because of the fact that he felt he did not have the imagination or the ideas to continue working.

Immediately thereafter, he started several businesses – all of which failed and resulted in him filing bankruptcy. That did not stop him, though. He wanted to achieve a high level of success, and he continued to play with ideas that would lead to his success. When you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe, that’s when you will be successful (Emphasis added throughout).

In the 1940s, Walt Disney developed an idea for an amusement park where the employees of the park could spend time with their kids and other loved ones. Many contribute this idea to his visit to Children’s Fairyland in the State of California. He sketched out his ideas, he presented them to others, and he worked day and night on his idea.

Then, on the 17th day of July in the year of 1955, a live television show ran where Walt Disney presented his newly built amusement park to millions of viewers. In the dedication speech, he included that he opened the park “…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to the world.”

Today, the parks that opened as a result of Walt Disney’s vision and imagination are the most popular parks to ever open to the public. He wanted success as much as he wanted to breathe and, after several failures and attempts, he achieved it. This is why the inspirational stories surrounding Walt Disney have such an immense level of popularity to this day.

Today would be a great day to start living your moment within your better self by reaping the rewards of life in true happiness, true intentions, and success by joining my inner circle where we give value to the world in many ways expressing how our actions speak louder than words and demonstrate our acts of kindness all over the world.
