Orville Wright Did Not Have a Pilot's License

Think about it. Orville had nothing tangilbe or framed on his wall to tell him that he could successfully do what he knew he had to try. And yet how often have you said to yourself, "I'm going to build a Web page after I've taken classes." Or, "I'd go for the sales manager job but without an MBA, what's the use?"

Some of the greatest advances in history were made by individuals who didn't know any better. They didn't know they "couldn't" do what they ended up doing.

Ask yourself:

  • "Is there something I'm putting off doing because I think I'm not quite ready?
  • Am I waiting for permission or validation from someone else?
  • Are the credentials I'm waiting for necessary?" 

What if you just stepped out and did it?

Would you fly?

Great point, Shirley. A common trait of great innovators is they never give up. There's another example of that at the link below.
