10 Lessons from Walt Disney on Entrepreneurship and Innovation

The entrepreneur of the day is Walt Disney. He is the founder The Walt Disney Company which is currently valued at $277.5 billion dollars.

Below are top Walt Disney quotes. 

1. All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

2. 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.

3. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.

4. Of all the things I’ve done, the most vital is coordinating those who work with me and aiming their efforts at a certain goal.

5. Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad 20 years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.

6. A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.

7. Courage is the main quality of leadership, in my opinion, no matter where it is exercised. Usually it implies some risk — especially in new undertakings.

8. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.

9. The difference in winning and losing is most often not quitting.

10. First, think. Second, dream. Third, believe. And finally, dare.
