A birthday is a great day to be inspired to “start over”. His first two film shorts never made the big screen, but today in 1928, the Mickey Mouse “Talkie” cartoon “Steamboat Willie”, was a BIG hit and the rest is history. Today is Mickey’s official birthday and a wonderful way to showcase “starting over”. The inspiration for Walt Disney? He spotted a mouse on his desk in Kansas City… and Walt needed it. Earlier that year, his hugely successful “Oswald the Rabbit” with other characters and artists were taken away in a studio rights contract deal. Walt re-started basically with a blank piece of paper. (This image was one of the first drawn of this famous mouse) That Mickey re-start is now an over $3-billion a year business just with merchandising. Every day can be your “rebirth” day. What are you “starting over” today?
