Neil Armstrong, was the 1st person to set his foot on the moon.
But, do you know who was supposed to be the 1st person?
His name was Edwin C Aldarin.
He was the pilot for the Apollo mission. He was working for the American Air force. Moreover he had experience of space walking, hence he was selected as the pilot.
Neil Armstrong worked for the American Navy. He was selected for his courage as the co-pilot.
When the Apollo mission landed on moon, they received a command from NASA, “pilot first”.
But Aldarin was hesitant , “what will happen”,
“will I get sucked in or will I burn out”, etc.,etc.
The hesitation was not for hours, but only for a few seconds.
In the meantime, NASA sent the next command, “co-pilot next”.
Within the next second, Neil Armstrong put his foot on the moon & became part of the world history.
World history was changed in 1 second. Though Aldarin had the qualification, the opportunity and the talent, because of hesitation of a few seconds, he missed out.
The world remembers only the person who comes first.
This is a good example of how people lose out because of hesitation & fear.
Whenever you see the moon, remember this, a moments hesitation can stop us from our greatest victory.
We all have great potential in us, the only thing that stops us from achieving what we are supposed
to achieve is our hesitation, fear and lack of confidence and conviction.
Many people are afraid to ask, afraid to appreciate others, & afraid to attempt what destiny beholds for them.
If we fail to do the right things, we will most likely do the wrong things.
Avoid hesitation, go ahead, attempt & achieve & Stay Blessed forever.
