* Pretend It's A Seed *

The Pixar Story
A documentary definitely worth watching. Especially if you love inspiring true success stories full of unexpected twists and turns of people who dared to risk it all to pursue their dreams and beliefs. And eventually, changed the world in ways they never believed possible.

Think of how many lives have been touched and changed by the stories of Pixar; from fans, moviegoers, Pixar employees (past, present and future) to children who form their dreams and creativity by watching these films over and over again. If John Lasseter never had the courage to pick himself up after being fired from Disney and then continuing on this crazy journey, then something as wonderful as Toy Story or Monsters' Inc would never have existed. It's truly amazing to see from one man with one story.. one dream just how many opportunities can grow and prosper.

Makes you wonder if all people actively sought out their purpose in life, how different this world would be. For one, I'm sure a lot more people would be living a much happier and fulfilling life.

(Now I understand where the inspiration for Lasseter's "Meet the Robinsons" came from which is personally one of my favorite Pixar movies).
