When I was in high school, my English teacher told me about this story of the Wright Brothers. And I read about them in a local magazine. In truth, when I first story from Adavenge Onise website I was enchanted. It REALLY caught my attention! Hence I decided to share it with you! Another thing that really, really, fascinated and also re-inspired me is that Adavenge Onise is a Nigerian and am a Nigerian too!! I have been inspired and rekindled by this story of the Wright Brothers.
On my own personal experience, I have also had some challenges which I was able to overcome. Before you start reading the story of the Wright Brothers; I deem it fit to also share my story and journey of how I became a published author with you. My story was published in a South African platform and you can watch the video on YouTube. I have also grown to learn and understand impossibility only exist in the mind. Nothing is impossible…
Without further ado, there you have the story of the Wright Brothers below:
Once upon a time in the year 1903, on the 17th of December.
Two brothers and an eager crowd had gathered at the open plains of Kitty Hawk to make history.
The Wright brothers(who were bicycle makers) were attempting to make the first powered flight of an airplane.
Orville Wright climbed onboard their crude airplane.
At the back of his mind, he could clearly remember that men(who were more educated with more resources) had died in horrible crashes trying to fly their airplane designs.
His brother, Wilbur looked at him to confirm he was ready and then started the engines of the plane . . .
Orville took a deep breath and released the latch holding the plane in place…There was no turning back now.
20 seconds later,
The Wright brothers had successfully completed the first powered flight in Human history.
Before this historic flight,
Many had tried and failed(Some even died in the process)
People claimed it was impossible for an airplane to fly.
They said it was a pipe dream that would keep costing money and lives.
But here we are today. . .
Seeing a plane fly over your location is something you are used to.
Listen . . .
Everything seems impossible until someone actually does it.
It all comes down to Mindset.
How you approach a problem determines the result you get.
If you see a challenge as do-able,
You would carry this confidence into ensuring you accomplish it and surprisingly, you would always achieve it(irrespective of the challenges you face along the way).
But if you see a challenge as insurmountable,
You would quickly give up at the first sign of trouble . . .
You are reading this write up because . . . Destiny wants you to come in contact with all the tools and information you need to build an excellent and amazing life, to fulfil destiny and create income streams which would pump money into your account and solve your money issues and give you the freedom you deserve.
You might feel at this point it is impossible.
But look at the results of people around you who have fulfilled destiny, made an impact, and are earning money while they sleep.
Do you know the difference between you and them?
If you want to live an excellent life and fulfill your God-given purpose on earth.
You must learn to transform your mindset.
Having finished reading this story; I want you to read carefully the lyrics of this song by the enigmatic and beautiful Irish singer: Enya. The title is Only If.
To your inspiration and motivation!!
Here are the lyrics:
When there’s a shadow,
you reach for the sun.
When there is love,
then you look for the one.
And for the promises, there is this land.
And for the heavens are
those who can fly.
If you really want to,
you can hear me say
Only if you want to
will you find a way.
If you really want to
You can seize the day.
Only if you want to will you fly away.
When there’s a journey,
you follow a star.
When there’s an ocean,
you sail from afar.
And for the broken heart,
there is the sky.
And for tomorrow are those
who can fly.
Ooh go doe bay mwa.
Ooh go doe bay mwa.
