Be Inspired: Walt Disney’s Success Story

When I was reading this beautiful inspiring story of Walt Disney, the man who revolutionised the entertainment industry, I made few rough notes, which I usually do when I read.

Interestingly, this morning when I was going through my notebook, I stumbled upon the note, and suddenly this idea came to my mind, “Why not share it with my friends on the blog.”

My notes:

(1) He was a man of vision with a magnificent dream.

(2) He could visualise his dream and he knew clearly, what he wanted from his life.

(3) He had goals or targets to achieve in life.

(4) He worked hard and he took massive action.

(5) He had a strong positive self-belief; he knew he could make a difference to the world of entertainment.

(6) He knew exactly what he wanted to do in the field of entertainment.

(7) He was courageous; he took and used the failures in his life as stepping-stones to success.

(8) He was consistent in his approach.

(9) He was a persistent man. He never gave up. He always kept on trying.

(10) He was completely devoted to his work.

(11) He accepted the events in his life as they were, and looked for opportunities in those events. So, he was always focussed on identifying opportunities, rather than counting his failures.

(12) He was a good leader and a manager. He cared for people.

(13) He was flexible in his approach. If something did not work, he was always ready to try it differently.

(14) He saw success as simple milestones. He believed success is a journey and not a destination.

(15) He believed in the power of networking with people.

‘Forbes Greatest Business Stories of All-Time’ by Daniel Gross, is an inspiring book about 20 most successful people in business. I have read the story about Walt Disney in this book, and I can strongly recommend it, if you want to find out how these great men and women made it big. It is mind-blowing, and discovering the secrets of success will revolutionise your thinking.

This is certainly a good approach to life. Did this book mention some of the criticisms of Walt Disney. I saw a programme on tv once that citicised Walt Disney and his organisation.

Hi Tim,
read this book a while ago, can't remember about any criticism. Overall it is an excellent book and it is an international best-seller.

Are you feeling better now?

take care

No mate. Not very well at all. Waiting for some test results. Hopefully it will just be an infection requiring some antibiotics.

Take care of yourself, by God's grace you will be fine soon.

Thanks Debojit. These English winters do not help recovery, it has to be said!

I think this is the key difference between people that acheive their dreams and people who fail to do so. People who acheive their dreams turn their failures around.

Excellent post. I read a book some time ago about how Disneyland was run, their hiring, training process, how they keep the park up. There is a huge amount of work involved in making Disneyland the happiest place on Earth but the employees do it because they believe in Walt Disney's dream. What a wonderful legacy he left behind.
