Things We Learned From the Brave Little Tailor

Mickey Mouse is a veritable wealth of lessons. We were recently re-watching the Brave Little Tailor short and thinking to ourselves… everything we need to know in life can actually be traced back to a lesson learned while watching Mickey defeat a giant. (Oops, spoiler alert.) Allow us to elaborate. We left the viewing of said short having gleaned a lot of wisdom, which we shall now pass on to you:

1. Life-changing days rarely start out that way.

Usually you’re just going along, minding your p’s and q’s, sewing a jacket or a shirt or a piece of fabric and whistling yourself a little tune.

2. It’s good to celebrate accomplishments, no matter how big or small they seem.

Even something as small as successfully wielding two fly swatters at once is cause for a pat on the back and a beaming smile of pride.

3. Boastfulness can sometimes lead to trouble.

Play it cool, guys. Things turned out okay for Mickey, but this “I killed seven!” business could really have gone another way.

4. Life can be shocking.

But that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Just hang on!

5. Expect the unexpected.

A left turn here, a right turn there, a bump every which way. Life’s road is filled with these things, but sometimes they work in your favor. (Like when a pretty girl, err Mouse, suddenly enters the picture.)

6. A little support goes a long way.

Be grateful for the cheerleaders in your life; they help more than you think.

7. Everyone has doubts.

But have faith in yourself. Remember, you’re capable of more than you know.

8. You already have the tools you need to succeed.
Brave Little Tailor 8
It’s just a matter of applying them.

9. Stand your ground.
Brave Little Tailor 9
Even if sometimes you’d rather retreat.

10. Get crafty.

There’s more than one way to deal with a (proverbial) giant.
