Jenny McGuire, the HR Director at 600 Global, is heading to Disney World with her family later this month. We have a funny feeling that it won’t just be her kids that will be having a blast! All of us here in Phoenix are big kids and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t still love Disney movies. So, with that in mind, we are going to share some of our favorite quotes from various Disney movies to help get you motivated today!
“The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” — The Emperor (Mulan)
This quote is all about overcoming obstacles. If you’ve ever worked really hard for something and seen your efforts pay off, you know how sweet the victory is. Alternatively, if you’ve ever been handed something, you know it’s not the same. We attend to appreciate the things that we’ve put the most into earning.
“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.” — Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean)
Jack Sparrow might as well be a manager at 600 Global with a quote like this one! We simply could not agree more with this mentality. In our experience, the most significant difference between successful and unsuccessful people is the way they think about obstacles. If you approach all of your problems with a solution-oriented mindset and a positive attitude, you’ll be amazed by how few real problems you’re left with at the end of the day.
“Venture outside your comfort zone. The rewards are worth it.” –Rapunzel (Tangled)
That Rapunzel, filled with wisdom. One of the surest ways to advance in your career is to push yourself outside of your comfort zone on an ongoing basis. It is human nature to want to stay within the realm that we know because it doesn’t threaten our confidence. It’s surprisingly easy to become complacent without even realizing it. Ask yourself this: when is the last time you took on a task that scared you? If you can’t remember, it’s time to start pushing yourself — because as Rapunzel says, the rewards are worth it!
