I love watching programmes about the earlier days of space exploration.
The ‘space race' was a mind-boggling attempt to achieve what seemed impossible. Watch programmes and films about that time, and it becomes clear - there was a vision, a huge, massive, incredible mission. Looking at the level of engineering and computing available in the late 1950s and early 60s, it’s nothing short of incredible that they put a man in space and got him back safely.
So what was the driving force behind this achievement? Well, there was an incredibly strong will to achieve it, driven hard by the cold war between Russia and the US.
At the beginning, the maths didn’t exist, the engineering failed all the time, the problems piled up and were seemingly insurmountable. Yet NASA persisted, the government demanded success and the people of America expected it.
So, despite these challenges, pure driven determination not only put a man in space, but on the moon. It built a space station, it created the Space Shuttle, and more recently, it’s taken private individuals to the edge of space. All within the span of 60 years.
And it all started out as impossible. No resources, little experience, and tools that didn’t exist. Just an idea and a massive desire to achieve.
Similarly, running a business can throw up challenges that make our goals, our best futures, seem - yes - impossible.
We know what we want to achieve, though the resources, experience, and tools may seem out of reach. They’re not part of our skillset yet, and it doesn’t feel as though they ever will be.
Well, if you want to launch a rocket, the first thing to develop is the desire. A vision that’s huge, massive, incredible. Then keep moving towards it.
The vision is what pulls you on, and makes the impossible… possible.
Can I offer you the chance to listen to some brilliant and inspirational speakers on the subject of your ‘Why’ - your vision and purpose. It’s one of the topics at the online Standing on the Shoulders of Giants Event. It’s all about Inspiration, Education and Motivation.
