Outlasting Fear

Risk, failure, and opportunity

Humans are curious beings.

What’s the first thing you think of when you are presented with a risky proposition?

Failure?

Opportunity?

How do you see it?

Creativity, Disney-Style

Jody Maberry sent this photo yesterday.

Creativity, Disney-Style.

Yesterday at Theater Circo Price in Madrid i was the third speaker and the first speaker after the morning break.

Advantageous position (won’t belabor why, just trust me).

Speaking with simultaneous translation is like (car metaphor) having your mind on the gas peddle and your vocals on the brake peddle.

Son, challenging myself to do the same thing i always do in a way i rarely do, excites me.

Imagined limitations

Near our home at Walt Disney World.

Imagined limitations are our worst enemy and biggest fear.

If we didn’t know our limitations, and never felt the fear of failing, what would we accomplish?

Can you imagine?

We are pleasure ​seeking machines

wellness cover article on Time Magazine
Yesterday checking out at Publix, the magazine rack sent a timely message. But we’re more interested in getting our stuff home before the ice cream melts. No?

We are pleasure seeking machines.

Food, TV, Internet, gambling, drugs and alcohol, sex, work.

Knowing this and embracing it is a huge advantage.

But awareness is only the beginning.

Nothing happens until we create a new reality from our knowledge.

i frequently wonder where i might be today if an elder would have coached me about the choices i will face and the common (pervasive) temptations i’ll need to slay.

Do you let truth scare or inspire?

Disney Institute speakers
Madison Square Garden Theater, Disney Institute team that delivered Customer Service training for all the game day staff for Super Bowl 48.

Do you let truth scare or inspire?

For example…

To learn from experience you must have different experiences.

But doing things we’ve never done before can be scary.

And…

Doing things we’ve never done before can be exciting.

Moving forward and growing often come with detours and growing pains.

These are gifts to diversify your experiences, which in turn grow your confidence.
