Although it seems like Disney movies are meant for kids, adults too equally enjoy the entertainment they provide.
In fact, at times Disney does better than the more serious and real world movies. The best part, however, is that these animations are not meant only for entertainment. If you watch them carefully you will discover that Disney teaches you a lot about life, even better than motivational and self-help books.
Let us have a look at some of the all-time favorite Disney characters and what advice they have for us:
1. Ralph – Wreck-It Ralph
“There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”
You may not be perfect, but that is totally okay; no one is. In fact, you do not even have to be perfect. All you have to be is yourself. Do not worry about being accepted. Even though this might seem to be very difficult for some who feel they are constantly judged, understand that you do not have to worry about being accepted because it is your life. Embrace your failures and shortcomings and work around them by building up your skills.
2. Edna – The Incredibles
“I never look back, darling! It distracts me from the now.”
What is done is done. There is no undoing it. Crying over the past will get you nothing. In fact, it will actually distract you because you might keep thinking over what you could have done differently and how you ruined things. However, what you can do is learn from the mistakes you made and avoid them in the future. Make peace with your past.
3. Christopher – Winnie the Pooh
“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
Just because you failed once does not mean you are dumb. Failures are part of daily life. Do not feel down because of one mistake. You are capable of much, much more than you realize. How else do you think you have made it till now?
4. Grandmother Willow – Pocahontas
“Sometimes, the right path is not the easiest one.”
There comes a situation at least once in everyone’s life when you feel that you just can’t do it. You know what decision you need to make but it seems so very difficult. If you are in such a circumstance, sit back, take a deep breath and ponder over the situation. Are you up for making the right decision and follow the correct path even if you have to put in a lot of work for it? Or would you find an easy way out even if it is wrong? Understand that every good thing needs efforts.
5. Alice – Alice in Wonderland
“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
We change and learn more about life every single day. We grow and evolve spiritually, emotionally and mentally. It would not benefit you to visit the past because you and everything around you has changed. We should, instead, progress and advance.
6. The Blue Fairy – Pinocchio
“A boy who won’t be good might just as well be made of wood.”
Goodness comes before anything else. It is not as important to be rich and powerful as it is to be kind. Goodness trumps everything else and the satisfaction you get out of helping someone is unmatchable to any other feeling. Besides, more often than not, your good deeds work in favor of you.
7. Princess Tiana – The Princess and the Frog
“The ONLY way to get what you want in this world is through hard work.”
You dream about a lot of things. Fine. But just having a dream is not enough. You have to work hard to achieve it, otherwise you might as well forget about it. You would do it if it is important for you. This could be anything and it applies to everything. You might want to approach that girl you are totally in love but do not have the guts to; you will have to do something if you wish to be with her. Start with a simple hello. You might want to lose those pounds but the idea of exercising scares you. Instead of joining a gym right away, begin with just walking for health.
