Every year we’re expected to make some grand gesture to improve our lives. Resolutions are great in theory, but more often than not, we give up those goals within the first couple months. So, we’ve come up with some Disney inspired resolutions that should be easy to stick to, and will encourage a life more like that of the great Walt Disney!
This year, try to focus on the simple things in life that give you joy. You may not have the latest gadgets or be able to travel to far off places, but take some time to appreciate all the things you DO have.
“I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.”– Walt Disney
A positive attitude goes a long way toward making any job bearable. With the right mindset, and some hard work, you can accomplish anything! Make this year your best one yet and put a song in your heart!
“I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.” – Walt Disney
This is the year you’re finally going to let go of worry, guilt, regret, and toxic relationships! The new year is your chance to start over with a clean slate, do your best to leave last year’s baggage behind. Just Let It Go!
“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”
– Walt Disney
With all of the latest in photography and technology, it’s easy to forget that there’s a real world out there. Put the phone down from time to time and just BE. We often spend so much time trying to capture the moment, that we often forget to ENJOY the moment. Make an effort in 2017 to spend quality time with those you love – it’s the memories you make together that will keep you going.
“The important thing is the family.” – Walt Disney
Try live your life with all the wonder and magic of a child. Yes, we all have those pesky responsibilities of adulthood, but that doesn’t mean we have to ignore all the joy and magic that’s present in the world around us. Pick your favorite Disney Park, and try to go more often, or schedule in a classic Disney movie night, never lose touch with the lessons you learned as a child.
“Movies can, and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood.” – Walt Disney
Ok, “No worries for the rest of your days” may not be completely doable, but Timon and Pumba sure knew how to enjoy life. They made the best of every situation and that is something I think we should all strive to do.
“Laughter is America’s most important export.”
– Walt Disney
If you stand still, you’re bound to miss something incredible. There will always be obstacles in life, but make it your goal this year to keep pushing forward.
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney
Everyone says “someday I’d like to…” Make that someday today! People often put things off with the belief that there will always be time later, but time is not guaranteed. Choose THIS to be the year you visit new places and try new experiences!
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney
If there is one thing that Disney has taught us, it’s to have faith and trust in yourself and all the magic in the world. 2017 is all about you and the wonderful things you can accomplish if you only believe!
“When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way,
implicitly and unquestionable.” – Walt Disney
This is the year to make your dreams come true; follow the advice of Walt himself and take a chance to make your life amazing.
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
