UPLIFTED
UP is a film in the theaters now. http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/up/

It is a must see.  While most of the reviews focus on the humor and box office sales figures, we focus on the message of this film.  This is a story of substance that brilliantly displays the spirit of adventure, collaboration between generations and the value of leadership, team work and commitment.

THE FRONTIER
The story is driven by the spirit of quest, discovery and exploration.  All key elements which drive the innovator, builder of social ventures and individuals that seek to pursue a fresh professional path.

QUEST
US President Woodrow Wilson said, “We grow by dreams.  All big individuals are dreamers.  They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a long winter´s evening.  Some of us let those great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nourish them through bad days until they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”

The quest is the adventure that calls us.

DISCOVERY
Discovery is the fuel that drives the quest and moves us to explore.  The film´s setting is rooted in a powerful tradition started by Arthur Conan Doyle´s Lost Land.  The backdrops to these stories take place in a real remote part of the planet situated in the depths of Venzuela and Brazil.

It is easy to see why this land sparked a burning curiosity:

EXPLORATION
Most people appreciate the AH-HA feeling of discovery and most get excited about the quest.  Yet, the vast majority of individuals stop short of exploring.
And it is in the commitment to action and exploration that a true quest is commenced with the potential for discovery. It is in this union of questing, discovery and exploration that one begins to exercise the muscles which advance the Pioneer Mindset.
