Walt Disney Valued His Janitor’s Ideas

Walt Disney was holding a meeting with his artists and Imagineers, planning new attractions for Disneyland. The door to the room was open, and he pointed down the hall and said, “See that janitor? He has as many ideas as any of us!” Walt valued feedback from anyone, even the studio janitor.

The moral to the story is that ‘normal’ people can have as much imagination and as many dreams as the ‘creative’, ‘successful’ and ‘visionary’ people. The trick is to (1) Realize the value of your imagination, and (2) Somehow figure out how to make your ideas into reality. Not always easy, but possible. Actually, probably most of the time not easy, but still possible.
