Yes you read that right. I have learned some great life lessons all from a PIXAR movie.
Sounds funny huh? But it’s true. So a while back, I took my nephews to go see Monsters University when it came out in theaters and although I am normally entertained and enjoy Disney movies it’s not much more than that – entertainment, especially for the kids. But I was pleasantly surprised with the messages this movie portrayed. Not only for the kids but myself as well.
So here we go – 5 life lessons I learned from Monsters University Never give up – work hard for your dreams!
It’s Okay to Fail
While I had my own dreams to open an online clothing boutique, I was scared. I was scared of failing, of putting the money into it, the work it would take, of criticism. So I continually made excuses and “reasons” to not open up the store. But all that was doing was hurting ME and my goals and dreams for my future! As funny as it sounds if Mike and Sully can work hard to achieve their dream of being “scarers” at Monsters, inc. I SURELY could achieve my dreams and work hard to make them happen. right?
No matter what you’ve planned, life can always take you in unexpected directions. But even if you have to take the path less traveled, that doesn’t mean your goals are out of reach. It takes perseverance and never giving up. Just believe in yourself! This took time for me to achieve but the more confidence I had and the more I thought “if not now, when?” the more I pushed myself to make my dreams a reality. And I am proud to say my dream will be launching by the 15th of October! Ya! And I hope that by pursing my dreams that my nephews will see that they can do ANYTHING as long as they work hard and dream big – they can achieve any goal or dream they want. It’s so important nowadays for kids to have positive influences to know that they can do anything if they work hard and I was so happy it came in the form of a Pixar Movie ;)
