After hearing about Neil Armstrong’s passing yesterday. it got me to think about how important it is to work hard at your dreams even if it means to reach for the moon and stars. Now, you see Neil Armstrong left a huge legacy and a good name for himself. In the history books, on the internet and in world history, he will always be the one who first walked on the moon being called, the man on the moon, and that sends out a message to everyone to never stop dreaming and go for what you want, because most of the time it doesn’t come to you, you have to go after it. Now, what this meant to me is that dreams can come true, but in order for it to come true is that you must work hard at it and it will. You just have to keep pursuing what you want out of your life. You can be what you want to be, but you have to really get going. You can’t say I will do it next year, or I will start doing something soon, no, things don’t work that way. If your going to do something, do it now, and don’t leave it for another day or next time because that next time sometimes doesn’t come back. What you have to do now, you do it. Everything comes into place after whatever you do and however you want it. Sometimes things take time to progress and takes time to be successful but think of it this way, the more your procrastinate and keep leaving things off, the more time it will take to where you want to be. Now is the time to get going with your plans and do something about it. You never start from the top. Work your way up to bigger and better things.
You can do anything you put your mind to. There is no time for excuses. I am not saying everyone has to reach the moon in order to be successful in life, each one of us has a gift and talent that we can utilize. One person can be good at something and one person can’t be good at that same thing, but each of us have something to offer to this world. If not now, in future. It all depends on how you overlook your life.
I respected Neil Armstrong and now that he has passed away, I’d like to offer my sincere condolences to his family, friends, colleagues, and all those who knew him. His legacy and his mission will always be remembered in our hearts and he will always be known as a go getter who was mainly the man on the moon, and now he is there with the stars in the sky and heaven gained an angel. God rest his soul and keep his soul bright in the white and lighted heavens in the sky.
VERY NICE BLOG INDEED 🙂
I shared this on Twitter where I also following you, Talin. Very good post indeed.
I’ll always feel a closeness to Neil Armstrong – my parents named me after him.
I think this is exactly how he’d want to be remembered. 🙂
For me, Neil Armstrong was one of the inspirational people also. I was saddened by his passing. I wish if he could share a little more of his private thought about his extraordinary experience as the first man on the moon…
I was serving in the army during Apollo 11. The significance of the event didn’t register then, but it really was quite an achievement.
He was, by all accounts, a very humble man. I heard an interview with him this morning where he talked about the thousands upon thousands of people who made it possible for him and Buzz Aldrin to reach the moon. He knew he didn’t get there himself. But here’s the thing: Someone will be the first person to step foot on Mars. Someone, someday, will be the first person to leave our solar system. But Neil Armstrong will always be the first person to leave home. No matter where they go, everyone else is just following him.
Very good post! Thanks for sharing.
