Perseverance has many stories, but one that stands out is Walt Disney's story. Walt Disney was fired from a Kansas City star Newspaper because his boss thought he lacked creatively. Walt Disney then created an animation company named Laugh-O-gram in 1920. He had made a deal with a New York distributor, but when the distributor went out of business, he was forced to give up Laugh-O-Gram. Disney also struggled to release his his now-classic movies. He was told that Mickey Mouse wouldn’t work since it would scare women. The three little pigs didn't have enough characters and Pinocchio was shut down during production, resulting Disney to rewrite the entire storyline. Movies like Bambi, Fantasia, and Pollyanna were misunderstood by audiences, but later became favorites. Disney’s greatest examples of Perseverance is when he was making Mary Poppins into a film. In 1944, at the suggestion of his daughter, Disney decided to adapt the Pamela Travers novel to the big screens. Although, Travers had no interest into selling her novel to Hollywood. Disney decided to win her over by visiting to her home for 16 years. After those 16 years had gone by, Travers was overcome by Disney’s charm and vision for the film and finally giving him permission to bring Mary Poppins to the big screens.
