Dream Big -Success comes through persistence. September 1962, John F Kennedy said: “We will send a man to the moon and returning him safely before the end of the decade. Not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard. Because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best our energies and skills”. In other words, success comes through persistence.

Powerful vision and powerful phrasing of president Kennedy. “Great success doesn’t come by doing easy things, but hard things.” Over the weekend, we celebrated the 50 anniversary. Viewing this documentary – 3 amazing stories:

– In 1962, Saturn V (base rocket) had to lift 130 tons and required a new engine. It had to be 10 more powerful than any existing engine.

– Apollo 8 was instrumental for Apollo 11. December 1967 it was the first crewed spacecraft to leave low earth orbit, reach the moon, orbit it and return. A small computer had to maneuver 16 different thrusters plus the main engine.

– Buzz Aldrin broke the moon take-off switch and after 15 minutes found a solution.

As a conclusion, man can do amazing things if they put their mind to it. Is it for personal reasons or as a society, for example, to combat climate change. Success comes through persistence and growth mindset.
