I don’t know why, but I have seen most of the parents insisting their children to watch Disney movies. Simply because they are entertaining? Or maybe, because of the life lessons taught by Disney movies? As a child, we may not really go into thinking that deep but when we grow up and watch or think of these movies again, we get to understand them well. In this article, we will be discussing 11 life lessons taught by Disney movies:

11 Important Life Lessons in Disney Movies
Beauty and the Beast
Beauty is not what you see on the outside but what is really within and we have been listening to this for ages. But nothing can illustrate this better than the movie ‘Beauty and the Beast’. All Belle sees is the beast when she first met him but she got to discover the real person when she got to know him.

Do not ever be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. I know we may get caught in our day-to-day routine but we need to push past that because it is only then when we get to grow as an individual. Marlin had to take the risk of leaving his comfort zone (his safe home) to find Nemo because otherwise, he would have never found him.
“if you can dream it, you can achieve it.” – this idea was shared by Walt himself and the same can be seen in all his films. You must always follow your dreams no matter how old you are. There will be people holding you back but you must keep moving forward to achieve your goal.
We all have our problems and day-to-day worries but sometimes, we just need to calm down and relax and let go of all the worries. Do something fun, have a happy little thought and just give in to your inner child. it’s okay to do that no matter how old we grow.
Loyalty, trust and willingness to help knowing it’s not safe or convenient at times is what defines a true friend. We have again and again taught by Disney that a true friend is the one who stays by your side no matter what. There will be hard times in your life and many people may end up giving up on you and leaving you alone but that one true friend would be standing beside you.
The Lion King
We all have self-doubts about things we can or cannot do. But the reality is that we are capable of more than we know. In the movie, Simba is full of guilt and self-doubt when Mufasa dies but he begins to believe in himself and it’s only then he leads the way he was meant to. look within yourself and there is nothing you cannot achieve.
You may feel down at times and be faced with situations you think you can’t overcome but that’s what life’s all about, right? You just have to push through and come out as a stronger person.
The Princess and the Frog
You have to really work hard for what you want in life. You will never get anything with doing nothing. Remember, hard work always pays off. Though Mulan struggles, but she ends up succeeding at the end. In Zootopia, Judy Hopps gave her all to become the cop she wanted to be.
Winnie the Pooh
You must always stay true to who you are. Do not ever try to pretend to be someone you are not because then, things will only go wrong. Actually, this message is not just conveyed by this movie but by most of the Disney movies. For instance, when Aladdin pretended to be what he’s not, things went wrong.
It’s good to have faith in life. You are likely to meet all kinds of people in your life, rude, sweet, arrogant and what not but you must always see the best in people. People are likely to imitate your behavior if you are kind to them.
The Little Mermaid
There will be so many people in your life asking you to do what they want you to, whether it’s your career path or where to shop. But do you really have to listen to them when you have decided on your own path? Live your own dream!
Disney movies will forever remain the new of all. There is a list of other movies as well and the list is actually never-ending because every movie has taught us one thing or the other.
