What is really great about the Disney cruise line for kids is that in the rooms the TV's have like ten different channels playing Disney movies at all times. Maybe not so good for the adults once the kids figure that out like my daughter did. But I did catch a documentary on Walt Disney which I thought was great. He was truly an extraordinary individual who accomplished a lot and touched a lot of people in his short time on earth. One thing that stuck with me from the documentary was when a friend, a former actor, I forget his name, asked Walt if he would consider himself an optimist? The friend said you are always in a good mood, you are always smiling, and you lift up the people you are around. This is what Walt said:
I am not an optimist, I am an OPTIMAL BEHAVIORIST. And he then explained that it mean't he tried to be in the best mood at all times. Performing at the highest level at all times. Vibrating on the highest frequency at all times.
I loved this, and it is so true. I have heard somewhere before that you should try to be the most enthusiastic person around.If you are positive and enthusiastic, people will be attracted to you, in all aspects of your life. They might not even know why, they might say there is just something about them.
Later in the film while waiting out a snow storm in Squaw Valley, Walt was waiting to go live on television. It looked like they were going to have to cancel it because of the snow. Soon as it was time to go live, the snow stopped, sun came out. As soon as they were done filming, the snow came down again. The anchor who was live with Walt, said that was unbelievable, a miracle. Walt said If you are a good person, and in a good mood. Good things will happen to you.
You see Walt Disney didn't reach the success he did by accident. He didn't create a company that has been here for over 90 years by chance. The third most recognizable company and logo in the world had a lot of purpose behind it. What is your purpose? Are you truly enthusiastic about it? Because if you're not, you will never be successful. Steve Jobs was successful because he loved computers and electronics. Walt loved telling stories and making people smile. Be the most enthusiastic person you know, or as Walt said an OPTIMAL BEHAVIORIST.
