Possibilities and You (and a man on the moon)

man on the moonPOSSIBILITIES
July 20, 1969, with rudimentary computers and machinery, a team who had worked and put together their mind landed the first man on the moon. So how did a team of engineers put sent 3 men to the moon, and 2 of them walk on its surface?
This is the result of determination, inspired work, and vision, but also belief. They believed they could do it, President JFKennedy believed in them. trusted them. gave them “carte blanche” that they could and would do this. There is also the element of “we can do it” at play. This was a huge task and they pulled it. it is said that there was a huge photo of the moon on the walls of the room where the team was working on the project.
==> So to recap: determination, inspired work, vision, and belief will guide you to success. Now let me ask you a question: what if they said, “we can’t do that! we don’t have the technology yet, it is too soon! we’re too young, too old , not experienced, too risky, too … not enough….” do you recognize these words?
Now , to put things in perspective: Think of it for a minute: Most televisions had no remote control but turning knobs, the computer technology was still in its baby steps stage, a telephone by then weighed 2 lbs 13 oz! there was not SUV but only station-wagon cars, most cutomers were paying with checks, the price of a house was $27,900, the price of a stamp was 6 cts, the median household income was $8,300, the gallon of reg gas was 35cts, a dozen of eggs was 62 cts, a movie ticket was $1.42, and a cup of coffee or a coke was 10 cts! the internet was born august 1991 (12 years later), a payphone call cost 10 cts!
