First off, let me say that I am a huge Disney fan- convert- devotee- addict- you name it. But for me, it’s not about the rides or Mickey or the ease of having annual passes to the world’s most popular destination…
it’s about creative fulfillment. I love that Walt imagined the best of what the human mind can create and then he set out to make it a physical reality. He has even been quoted as saying that ‘this IS my reality.’
See, I grew up thinking you go to college, work hard at a job, take a vacation or two each year, buy a home, retire etc…
And to some degree I did those things. And you know what? I felt trapped and bored. NOT a good combo for this girl. That was not the reality I wanted- I wanted creative fulfillment. I wanted the freedom to travel. I wanted to be where I felt the most alive , doing what I loved the most.For me, that just wasn’t going to happen following the status quo. I would share my vision early on with people and most of the time I got eye rolls and smirks.
But I did it. It took me a little while to learn and accept my true limitless value and how that lines up with any creative income generator…but I did it.
And THAT is the reality I want for you. The one I/you create that feels best. I think that is what Walt was saying…you can choose your own reality by lining up your passion with your gifts and life experience in a way that serves others profoundly.
Walt, Roy… you two brothers outdid yourselves. The world (or most of it) took notice and we keep coming back for more of the MAGIC.
I place these same timeless rhythms into my consulting and coaching biz helping people around the globe, for the past 4 years, create and launch successful dream businesses, helping them to create a new reality.
One of the things I first did when I started my own business was to look at what, in my industry, could be improved upon. I noticed some BIG holes and gaps in the biz coaching industry and endeavored to fill the holes as part of my signature offerings.
And it worked, my biz continues to grow bigger and better each year.
I believe this is because I give the experience to my clients that I want to receive myself. I go above and beyond because I am as fired up about their dream biz as they are. That is the Walt coming through in me. There are no holes and no limits, friends.
Another part of my biz is music and also is one of the reasons I adore Disney. As a professional vocalist and top line writer- music is in my bones and one of my dreams is to get a song placed somewhere within the Disney network. Now, when I started creating songs a few years ago, I had no clue what I was doing I just went with my heart. I got interested in sync music and knew that was where I wanted to be musically. So, 5 signed songs later…that is gaining traction. My point is , 3 years ago I had no clue nor could I see myself successful as a songwriter- singer heck yes- been wowing crowds for years…but writing melody and lyric?
Hmm… makes me wonder what more lies ahead that I didn’t really think I could pull off.
Same goes for you, by the way.
