Commitment and Achievement

This quote illustrates commitment and achievement . It comes from a classic movie, Spirit of St Louis.  When Charles Lindbergh comes to meet the bankers  in St Louis to get funds for his project, here is one thing that happened.

At the end of the meeting, one of the members comes to him and asks, “–Mr Lindbergh, what makes you so sure you can make it across the Atlantic Ocean?
–Well, Mr Bigsby, when I was a kid and the smallest in my class I made up my mind that one day I was going to be 6 feet 3 inches tall. And I made it, Sir, with half an inch to spare.”

Later in the movie…

“– Maybe it’s too soon, Slim (Charles Lindbergh nickname). Maybe in 10 years or so, we will be ready.Right now the planes are not up to it…

–But it’s got to be tried Now! Over , and over again, until it’s done! Can’t you see that?”

This illustrates commitment and achievement!
