This past week I had the fantastic opportunity to spend some time at Disney World with my family and great friends. It was a first for us and the experience was phenomenal! There was so much to see and do but there was one thing that completely captivated me.
As the final hour was upon our trip, we were headed to exit the park and I noticed a sign with a simple but very profound quote by Walt Disney. It read, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” I immediately thought, “WOW! How amazing of a statement from a man that speaks from real experience and success.” And I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.
Ponder the Power
Today I want you to just take a moment and really ponder the powerful message behind that simple and short sentence. Truly grasp the depth of its meaning and substance. Listen to what it calls out to you from within.
Then start to visualize that dream. Start seeing it as a living reality that you are capable of achieving.
Believe Like Walt Disney
When Walt spoke this quote, he was speaking from real world experience. He was a man that had dreams and visions. But more so, he had determination and dedication. Those are the elements that make the IMPOSSIBLE, POSSIBLE.
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” – Walt Disney
If he hadn’t been determined, there would not be a Disney brand today and neither would he have ever said those inspiring words. Though he was determined and worked hard at his vision, he ENJOYED the journey and had FUN proving his dreams COULD COME TRUE!
What Is It?
What are you dreaming about today? What is it that ignites a passion deep within but maybe you feel that it is too far of a desire to obtain? Whatever it is, know that the world may label your dream IMPOSSIBLE but you don’t have to accept it. It’s your choice. You can conform or you can create.
I hope you create and when you do, I encourage you to enjoy the journey. Just as we planned for months and drove for hours to Disney World, we were excited about what was to come.
It was knowing that the destination was reachable and knowing we would eventually get there that kept us excited and moving forward. And when we arrived, it was all worth it!
So it will also be with your dreams in life. You have the power to turn your DREAMS into DESTINATIONS!
Here are some points I want you to remember:
- Dream – Dream without limits. If you are going to dream, you might as well go for it all.
- Plan – Plan the journey. Gather knowledge and information you will need to start. Don’t worry about what you need to finish. That will come as you travel.
- Launch – Put the dream into action and let it fly. Sometimes you just have to DIVE IN and work out the details as you go.
- Dedication – Be dedicated to your dream. Dig in and push through. Giving up is never an option for winners.
- Capture – When you stick to your dreams, they will eventually be captured and no longer will they be labeled IMPOSSIBLE.
So can the impossible be fun? Absolutely! But it takes desire, determination, and dedication. With that, your dreams will come true also!
