You have to admire the amazing satire in the text from Disney’s Zootopia.  The lesson is simple, don’t dream, don’t try – then you can never fail and get hurt.  Therefore if you want to shoot for the moon, you have to be prepared to fail and get hurt.  But then as the saying goes, the secret to success is how well you get back up every time you get knocked down.

Stu Hopps: Judy, you ever wonder how your mom and me got to be so darn happy?

Young Judy Hopps: Nope!

Stu Hopps: Well, we gave up on our dreams and we settled, right Bon?

Bonnie Hopps: Oh, yes, that’s right Stu. We settled hard.

Stu Hopps: See? That’s the beauty of complacency, Jude. If you don’t try anything new, you’ll never fail!

Young Judy Hopps: I like trying, actually.

Bonnie Hopps: What your father means, hun, is that it’s gonna be difficult, impossible even, for you to become a police officer.
