One of the greatest success stories of the 20th century is Walt Disney’s career. Having gone bankrupt twice, moved to California with only $40 and a dream, and got turned away when he presented his first two ideas for talking cartoons, Disney was determined for greatness. That greatness, however, came with a price; he had to remain determined, develop his ideas, and think creatively and critically.
It’s one thing to look at Disney products, theme parks, movies, etc, and see only the success of the hard work. However, realizing the struggle, failure, and character it took to get it started is a great motivator to students who might otherwise look at it all and think they could never achieve great goals such as Disney did. continued
