This quote by Walt Disney is one of my favorites, not to mention it was in the featured film Meet the Robinsons (which was such a great movie!). Nonetheless, this quote definitely inspires me because it reminds me to always move forward, stay curious and to not be afraid to take risks.
Speaking of taking risks, over the weekend I was able to attend Clever Talks, an amazing conference showcasing leading innovators and public figures to inspire and motivate the younger generation. We had Prince Ea, Justin and Can from Poreotics, Adam Riggs-Zeigen of Rock My World, and plenty of other great speakers. Each speaker had a different story, but their underlying message was to believe in yourself, your passion and take risks to make it happen. Whether these people were inventors, dancers, poets, or creatives – they all spoke with passion and shared their ups and downs throughout their journey. You all know I’m about positivity and inspiration and this conference was just that if not more to say the least. If any of you have a chance to attend Clever Talks, I definitely recommend it!
And this quote can’t be any more perfect after hearing so many inspiring stories. I found that it’s true – you can’t keep looking back at the past, you have to build that foundation to your future by moving forward: Test your curiosity. Start something new. Take those risks! And it’s all about those new paths that we take that mold who and what we are. Because you’ll never really know unless you try!
