Disney demonstrates domination despite defeat
Found a great list of Walt Disney's failures on the EarthTimes.org website.
Walt Disney has been a hero of mine since a report I did on him in 2nd grade. During my "research" (I read two books on him at the school library) I found weird parallels between my life and his, two of which -- paper routes and the fact I came into this world just as he was leaving it -- allow me to feel close to what I know was a kindred spirit. Whenever I receive that vital dose of inspiration just when I need it, I recognize it frequently comes from 'Uncle Walt.'
While I haven't had the same scale of failures/challenges in my life that he had -- neither have I had the same scale of victories.
Few of us have.
Walt is a perfect example of great risk equaling great reward.
Oh, and don't forget to Save Disney.
PS: My new friendDouglas Eby picked up on the lessons in this post and included it on his page dedicated to those who have failed their way to success.
