In elementary school every kid is asked…’what do you want to be when you grow up?’ I remember thinking astronaut would be cool!
“There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again. But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?
We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”-JFK
You may not have a goal to personally go to the moon but YOUR goals are your goals–believe and make them happen!! One of my little mantras is ‘shoot for the moon…if you miss you’ll land amongst the stars’…be your own astronaut!
