We Must All Become Neil Armstrong in Our Own Lives

Pushing the envelope of physical limitations, NASA and the space program have proven anything is possible if we “reach for the stars”.  So, why should our personal lives be any different?  The world is filled with obstacles, stumbling blocks and perceived limitations that may force us into an unfulfilled life… but only if we allow it to occur.

As much as Neil Armstrong became an American Hero by speaking that profound statement, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, each of us must follow Armstrong’s lead by living our lives in the same manner, with the same fervor, sharing the same goals, achieving the same personal growth and results.  Indeed, leaving our “mark” for the rest of the world to see.

And as much power, support and capability as NASA provided to the Apollo Space Program and Neil Armstrong, each of us has an even greater force within us to help us reach our personal potential as a human being, sacred spirit and eternal energy force.

Once unleashed, empowered and nurtured, the human spirit is an unstoppable force in the universe.  Our imagination, enthusiasm and self-imposed limits are the only boundaries confining and denying us from reaching our potential.

I have four words to share with you now: “Reach for the stars!”

Re-live that incredible feat by Neil Armstrong on the 20th of July, 1969, when the world held its collective breath and witnessed something never before achieved in the history of mankind:

Live long and prosper Neil Armstrong.  May you rest in peace as you made that final “giant leap” into eternity.

(1930 – 2012)
