A Reminder to Keep Going- You Can!
Have you ever felt like your life is at a standstill, or even worse, like it’s going backwards?
Did you know that Walt Disney was fired from a Missouri newspaper for ‘not being creative enough? The Kansas City Star fired Disney in his early 20s; he subsequently started a business, Laugh-o-gram Studios, which went bankrupt in 1923. After trials and tribulations, and very little money, Walt’s persistence paid off when his animation skills were picked up by the motion picture industry in 1928. Today the total assets of the The Walt Disney Company is worth over $100 billion & growing.⠀
*Years later, The Walt Disney Company would buy ABC which owned the Missouri newspaper he was fired from, pretty ironic?
Before you ever accept your recent setback as an accurate assessment of your abilities, remember this story of Walt Disney.
