These 34 Disney Quotes Will Inspire You To Follow Your Dreams

As one of the greatest, most creative men to walk our planet once said, “Too many people grow up. That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don’t remember what it’s like to be 12 years old.” Walt Disney provided countless children with life lessons that they carry with them throughout their lives. Rewatching Disney movies as an adult can bring back precious childhood memories. The directors and writers crafted the lines and scenes with great care and attention, pulling at our heartstrings every time no matter how old or mature we have become.  

When was the last time you watched a Disney movie? They can provide great wisdom and insight on how easy it can be to live a better, more successful life. Below, find quotes from various Disney movies that can inspire you to build your dreams, launch your new product line, or take the leap of faith on working toward your lifelong goals. 

Build Your Dreams

Many lose touch with their dreams and aspirations as they fall into the 9 to 5 cycle upon entering the workforce. Even if those who enter jobs that do not have traditional clock in and clock out times still suffer the same fate – they live to work instead of working to live. Take time to think about these nine quotes and see if they can revive that fire you once head to pursue your dreams: 

    1. “You must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul.” — Ratatouille

Now, you might not feel like you can do much now, but that’s just because, well, you’re not a tree yet. You just have to give yourself some time. You’re still a seed.”  — Flik, A Bug’s Life

Hard Work Is Required

Anything worth doing requires hard work. You must have past along with drive to continue taking concrete steps each and every day to reach the goals that will allow you to achieve your dream. For some, it may take two months. For others, it may take a lifetime. Regardless of the amount of time it may take, as long as you are doing your best, you will get there. Consider the following eight quotes about hard work:

    1. “The only way to get what you want in this world is through hard work.” — Tiana, The Princess and The Frog

    2. “The very things that hold you down are going to lift you up.” — Timothy Mouse, Dumbo

    8. “Don’t think and don’t worry. When the time comes, you’ll know what to do.”  – Helen Parr, The Incredibles

No One Does it Alone

While dreams may begin with one person, there is no success story that is possible without a strong team. Even if you complete all of the work on your own, you will have had at least one person encouraging you along the way. Without help, dreams will become seemingly impossible and fall to the wayside. Find your team and you will watch your success grow exponentially. These Disney quotes may help paint a better picture:

  1. “You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.” — Walt Disney

  2. “You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.” — Pocahontas, Pocahontas 

  3. “For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.” — Mowgli, The Jungle Book 

  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.” — Walt Disney

You Are Your Biggest Supporter

While a team is necessary, if you do not believe in yourself and encourage yourself daily, you will not achieve the greatest level of success possible. If you do not believe in what you are doing, it will show. Allow yourself to celebrate your achievements and review the mistakes you have made. You must remember to push yourself to be the greatest you can be. From Ratatouille to Cinderella, we have seen this time and time again in Disney movies:

    1. “Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere.” — Anton Ego, Ratatouille
    2. “You don’t have time to be timid. You must be bold and daring.” — Lumière, Beauty and the Beast
    3. “Put your faith in what you most believe in.” – Tarzan, Tarzan
    4. “Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I cannot believe it!” – Jack Skellington, The Nightmare Before Christmas
    5. “You just need to believe in yourself.” – Rex, Toy Story 2
    6. “There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.” — Merida, Brave
    7. “Perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take is to be seen as we really are.” — Cinderella, Cinderella 

The Past Is In The Past

Sitting in despair and focusing on the problems is normal, but you cannot stay stuck in these feelings. The best thing you can do is learn from your mistakes and apply the lessons you learned. If you can’t move on from your mistakes, you will never see how far you can go! As the old adage goes, “Everything happens for a reason.” See what these Disney characters have to say:

    1. “I never look back, darling! It distracts me from the now.” — Edna Mode, The Incredibles

    6. “It’s no use going back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” Alice, Alice in Wonderland
