Steve Jobs unveils the iPhone
In watching the first iPhone announcement, was struck by Steve’s water bottle and his constant talking with his hands.


Will this ever become The Disney Way speaking website?

Yes, no, and maybe.

It will always be the HQ for Life’s Five Big Choices.

i will always be a Disney Way keynote speaker.

Maybe there is room for both.

The funny thing about being brave is that there is no template. Read into that any way you want. Big picture, you can do anything and you can do it anyway you want.

The downside is you might, um, will probably, um, might fail. (i did, repeatedly)

The upside is you might succeed – but only if you want to succeed as much as you want your next breath. (i am, finally)

When Your Life Changes

Practice what you preach or be quiet

Disney Executive Speaker jeff noel
On the way to a meeting.


Thirty years at Disney makes it easy to share this with you, with conviction…

Today is not a good day to put your dreams on hold.

Practice what you preach or be quiet.

We are tired of hearing what you’re going to do.

Go do it, and share it after you’ve done it.

That will inspire us.

Soar or sink?

His 9,000 pound Humvee was blown up by a roadside bomb. He lost an arm and a leg.

He was in deep, dark despair.

Saw him last night for the first time on Dancing with the Stars.

Courage amplified.

Today’s lunch meeting at Magic Kingdom with the CEO was already primed to be courage amplified, well before seeing the soldier above.

This means nothing to literally all but a dozen people in the world

Disney Way Keynote Speaker
Someday the one on the right will read Mid Life Celebration. He’ll decide when.


This means nothing to literally all but a dozen people in the world:

The Internet’s Only Five-A-Day Blogger.

It started simply as a desperate attempt to develop a writing habit strong enough to start, finish, and publish a book he’d promised to write 30 years prior.

It began without an ounce of fanfare April 1, 2009. Write five daily, differently-themed blogs – one blog for each of life’s five big choices.

Do this for 100 consecutive days. That ought to be catalytic enough to get a book on Amazon and Kindle.

What do we have if we don’t have courage?

You can not be a prophet in your own town. Prevailing wisdom illuminates this fact.

Takes courage to follow our beliefs. Without courage, our beliefs die.

Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four Cs. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably. -Walt Disney

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.
