In 1961,  President J. F Kennedy had a decision to make. Whether or not call a news conference and tell the world the United State was going to go to the moon. It was a risky decision. It wasn’t realistic at the time.

People would be worried, the technology didn’t exist, there were lots of questions unanswered as to how this could be done.

President Kennedy looked at Werner von Braun, “a German, later an American, aerospace engineer and space architect credited with inventing the V-2 rocket for Nazi Germany and the Saturn V for the United States.

He worked to develop the rockets that launched the United States’ first space satellite Explorer 1, and the Apollo program manned lunar landings” and asked, Werner, “what will it take for us to go to the moon”?

He answered; “the will to do it”

As I went through the day, I had to pull out my journal to write it down. What will it take for me to get what I seek? What will take for me to help my community, nation and continent? What will it take for me to build a lasting legacy to make the world a better place?

I want us all to borrow these five words; THE WILL TO DO IT!

That’s all it is, where there is a will, there is a way. The moment you decide to do something, you set your mind so actively on it, the universe will work in your favour, you will meet the right people who will inspire you the more, share your dreams and give you a reason not to give up.

What do you want in your life? help others? You seek success?
Remember, the answer is; THE WILL TO DO IT.
