When Walt Disney was six years old, he drew some flowers with faces in art class.
His art teacher looked at his drawing and said, “The flowers are nice Walt, but flowers don’t have faces.”
Walt looked his teacher in the eye and said, “Mine do.”
When we’re young we’re forced to hand over the reins to adults. They’re well intentioned, but they give us rules and make judgements on our abilities which makes our soul shrivel, makes us normal, and forget who we are.
According to the latest research by NASA scientists, we’re born creative geniuses but then become adulterated by the education system and society.
As Steven Spielberg said, “Being normal isn’t natural. Being normal narrows the imagination and hinders creativity.”
No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.
Be you. The world will adjust.
As for Walt Disney, his animated version of Alice in Wonderland had flowers with faces. Only this time they also had voices, different characters, and loved singing.
