What Is Disney Doing To Children?

A few years ago I went to Disneyland Paris with my girlfriend at the time.

It was an incredible few days even as a 25 year old without kids! But I couldn’t help but think there was a underlying influence that Walt Disney was trying to have on children that is far greater than making them happy by playing with a soft toy mouse, watching a film or being at the Disney land resort itself.

Many people in life often think “I don’t have any luck”, “I will never get to be what I really want to be”, “I hate….”

But how many people ever ask themselves why?

Not many.

A small handful of people understand the philosophy of the law of attraction and when you do understand it you can really change your life for the better.

If you have read The Secret by Rhonda Bryne you will know what I am talking about right now, if you haven’t then don’t worry I will just give you an idea of what it is based on what I gained from visiting Disney.

Disney, It is one of the largest brands in the world, why, because it provides an insight to a magical world that in the end everyone lives happily ever after, something that can takes the mind away from the distractions and disappointments of everyday life.

Disney is something that every person, male or female, old or young, tall or short has enjoyed a bit of at some point in their life.

But what was it Walt Disney was trying to create? A form of entertainment? The first animation or something deeper than that?

Was he trying to install the core understanding of the law of attraction from as young an age as possible to try to change the beliefs of possibility so that young children can follow their dreams to become what ever they want to be?

Think about any Disney movie the Lion King, Aladdin, Pinocchio, Snow White, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, Bambi, Cinderella, Peter Pan.

What do they all have in common?

The main characters all have an ultimate goal or as most of the films call it ‘a wish’.

Most of the characters come from tough beginnings, they often don’t have family or lose close family at the beginning of the film but with their ‘wish’ being their goal they will defy all odds by defeating the baddies and break through (make the impossible, possible) and live happily ever after.

It was at this point I related Disney’s films to real life.

What if there is an underlying message that Walt Disney was trying to get across… No matter how hard life might seems with a strong enough belief or ‘wish’ life’s hurdles (the baddies) can be overcome to achieve your ultimate goal.

As the famous song goes ‘When you wish upon a star, Makes no difference who you are, Anything your heart desires, Will come to you.’

Have a think about your greatest achievements in life so far, I bet you really really wanted it, worked at it and below and behold eventually it came to you.

So before you think about telling everyone how unhappy, bored, sad you are, ask yourself the question:

What is it you really, really wish for and what are you doing towards achieving your wish today?

Until next time… make it happen.
