1. Cinderela:

When I was young, i was full of dreams, dreams to become a princess or a dream to have a lion as a pet or even live in the sea. These amazing disney movies have given us so much to dream about, so much to believe on that our childhood is filled with such colors of hope and believe. Cinderela was my very first favourite princess because it involved a local maid to marry a prince. It made us, little girls, think that if we keep on believing, one day we will meet our prince and that thought filled me up with joy everytime I watch that movie and sang the songs which includes my favourite,

Lyrics from "Cinderella"
Music and Lyrics by Al Hoffman, Mack David, and Jerry Livingston

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true

Lyrics compiled by Disneyclips.com

If we look at the movie at this age, we will see that this movie was filled with motivation, motivation to dream big, motivation to believe that whatever happens your place can never be taken and motivation for a happy ever after.

Want to have the best 4minutes of the day! watch this video and see how Walt disney is motivating us from the very beginning, I am self motivated because of these movies and the lessons they teach.

2. the Lion King

This movie, if we look through our eyes, defines each and everyone of us. Simba was tricked by his own uncle, to take over his place and how Musafa's own brother tricked him to death. Their whole life was changed, the life of the jungle was changed because of their leader. The movie teaches us the traits of a leader, the movie teaches us how to be strong when no one wants you and the movie teaches us to fight back and take what belongs to you. The best of all the teachings they give, most powerful of them are:

1. Its all in the past, but it still hurts.... its the past, you can either run from it or learn from it.

2. there's more to being a King than getting your way all the time.

3. Change is good.

4. Everything you see exists together as a delicate balance, you need to understand that balance as a king and respect all the creatures.

5. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the circle of life.

3. Winnie the pooh:

This movie gives great lessons when it comes to loving a person, value of friendship, work hard for the things you want, our inner self, practise patience, be aware, it teaches us to believe in ourselves that we can be stronger and smarter and we can do alot more good to this life if we just believe. Some of the powerful teachings from this movie includes:

1. “Love is taking a few steps backward maybe even more…to give way to the happiness of the person you love.”

2. “If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”

3. You can’t always sit in your corner of the forest and wait for people to come to you… you have to go to them sometimes.

4. “If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.

5. “Always watch where you are going. Otherwise, you may step on a piece of the forest that was left out by mistake.”

6. "Promise me you'll always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."

4. the Little Mermaid:

The little Mermaid is filled with powerful words about dreams, how to chase your dream and keep on believing. Ariel Wanted to become a human, she learned all about Humans, she worked hard to get to her dreams. It was her passion to learn new stuff, things which no one wants to believe. She even faught with her father, who was reluctant to believe her. Teenage is the best age to bring a change. Some of the most loved quotes from the movie includes:

1. We always want what we don’t have. Sigh.

2. Humans are complicated.

3. Teenages know everything.

4. Life is..... hard

5. You want something done, you got to do it yourself.

6. Real beauty is on the inside.

5. Tarzan:

Tarzan is much famous for its teachings on faith, dreams, hope and hard work. Tarzan is the story of all the boys and girls who are left behind in this world without their parents and their journey starts with hardships and how they can too find their way back to where they belong. They must trust their heart and let faith decide.The song says it all:

Put your faith in what you most believe in
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lies we see
A paradise untouched by man
Within this worlds blessed with love
A simple life, they live in peace
Softly tread the sand below your feed now
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see
Beneath the shelter of the trees
Only love can enter here
A simple life, they live in peace
Raise your head up
Lift high the load
Take strength from those that need you
Build high the walls
Build strong the beams
A new life is waiting
But danger's no stranger here
No words describe a mother's tears
No words can heal a broken heart
A dream is gone, but where there's hope
Somewhere something is calling for you
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see
Songwriters: Phil Collins
Two Worlds lyrics © Walt Disney Music Company

This movie is a perfect example to orphans that how they can live their lives too, this time when you watch tarzan, watch it from the percpective of an orphan.

6. Bug's life:

I should have put this movie on top, this is the bestest of all the movies i have ever seen but i had to mention the inner strength first, one should dream first, dream big then one should believe that he could achieve that dream and no matter what the circumstances are, you should always strive for the best even if you are an orphan. In this movie, the best lesson is to give yourself a little time, and work to the peak. how Flick wanted to get rid of the grasshoppers and far he had gone, he make plans first and then make his way to those plans, how inventions are important in ones life, Flick is always inventing new things to fulfil his plans and keep moving forward, he made his ways out whenever stuck in any situation. He had faith in his heart and the highest level of willpower and at the end he actually changed lives, lives of all the members of his community.

7. Marry Poppins:

Marry poppins is another great film when it comes to lessons, Ms. Marry teaches us to know what we want in life and we should know how to ask for it, it teaches us about life, how to live life to the fullest that every job can be done with an element of fun, joy and songs! How a little love and care can bring down the nastiest of people to goodness and kindness in the dialoque: 

A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down

It teaches us that laughter is good, we should laugh once a while in order to keep the tough times rolling. Be polite and keep yourself as cool and calm as possible, and its ok to make up words sometimes if it is to help someone and most of all, its all about perspective.
