Writing Tip: Spotlight (Walt Disney)

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney


Did you know that Walt Disney originally created a studio called Laugh-O-Gram? You’ve probably never heard of it because it went bankrupt.

Did you know that Walt Disney never profited from his work on “Oswald the Luck Rabbit” because Universal Pictures owned all the rights?

Did you know that Walt failed several times before becoming successful?

“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

Everyone expected Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to be an enormous failure, except for Disney himself.

There is not a person today who has not at least heard the word “disney”. Billions of people watch these movies, cartoons, go to theme parks, read books all inspired by a man who began his career as a failure.

Undoubtedly there were times when Disney doubted himself, when he became discouraged. If he had allowed himself to remain discouraged, we never would have been able to enjoy the magic that he has created.

In my last writing tip, I encouraged you to put aside your discouragement. Failure does not end your career, it is just another obstacle to be overcome.

Keep your eye on my blog. In honor of Disney’s great triumphs I will be posting a Disneyland blog in a day or so about some of the best (and possible secret) experiences at Disneyland parks.

Happy Writing Everyone!

  1. As both an avid lover of Disney and a writer with dreams–but not quite the confidence to pursue them–, I wanted to thank you for this post and the encouragement it brings!
