Disney's Lessons for Happines: Final Day

Today is Day 12, the final day for "Disney's Lessons for Happiness" and we end with one of Walt's most famous quotes.

We all need to remember that nothing is impossible.  No idea or dream is so big that it cannot happen.  You are the only roadblock to getting what you want. Where there is a will there is a way.  Meaning if you have the drive and want it to happen, you can make it happen.  You may have to work, but only you can stop yourself.  It's fun to do something that you once thought was impossible because it gives you such a sense of power and strength.  Think of how great you feel after doing something you were afraid to do or something you thought you would never see the end of.  It is great right?  So remember that feeling and remember that it did happen.

Everyday do the impossible, because it is possible.

Disney's Lessons for Happiness: Day 11

Believe with unwavering faith and positivity that what you want to happen will happen.  Believe that no matter the obstacle, no matter the naysayers, no matter the struggles, it will happen if you want it to.  Don't question how, don't question when or with whom...just believe.  It will happen for the right reason, at the right time, with the right person...

Don't use words like if, maybe, or might...use will, when, must...believe!

Disney's Lessons for Happiness: Day 10

No matter what you are going through, who is treating you badly, how bad your life may seem at any moment, it is important to never lose your happiness.  Life is still full of wonders and magic no matter what is going on.  You choose how you react to any situation, so that means you choose how you act and feel.  No thing and no person has control over you, except you!

If you feel you lost your "zest" for life, then the only person that can change that is you.  Rediscover how amazing life is and as another famous quote from Walt Disney says, "Keep Moving Forward!"

Disney's Lessons for Happiness: Day 9

Money doesn't buy happiness, Money is the root of all evil, etc...we have all heard those.  Money should not be the end goal and result of what you are trying to achieve.  Happiness and personal satisfaction are what is going to bring you the most joy in life.  You need to let the provision chase you, not the other way around.  When you do what you were meant to do and what you want to do in life, success and money will follow.  Let the actual act of what you are doing make you excited and happy, not what you will get from it monetarily.

This can be applied in so many ways and angles.  You may have also heard the phase 'love what you do' or had someone ask you 'what would you do for work even if you didn't get paid?'  Those phrases are meant to help you focus in on your purpose.  What would you do in life just for the pure joy of it, even if that meant not getting paid?  I can tell you there is probably something that brings you joy that you do no matter what the outcome is.  But that simply the idea of act of doing it makes you happy means that you don't necessarily have to get rewarded for doing it.

What excites you?
