Gus Grissom: the name itself represents different things to different people. What went wrong with Gus Grissom’s life and career? Was he a national hero, worthy of the respect and admiration of his colleagues and the public, or was he purposely maligned by the media, shamelessly pursued in all aspects of his private and public life? According to Eric Burgaust, author of Murder on Pad 34: “t took a moment for the full implication to sink in – that Grissom’s own carelessness caused his and his colleagues’ deaths. The suggestion immediately recalled another incident during Grissom’s first space flight in July, 1961, when the hatch of his Liberty Bell 7 Mercury spacecraft blew off in the water after landing. As 2009 reaches it’s climatic finale, people are making big changes and doing exciting things. It starts and ends with hard work.
Determination, motivation, perseverance, commitment, and passion. Where do you stand, right now, today? Are you happy with where you are? What’s holding you back from being you on your best day? It’s easy to settle in and let things come and go. This time last year I was content, or at least thought I was, with living a routine life. Content with not rocking the boat or swimming against the current and going with the flow. That voice telling me to appreciate what I had started telling me that there was so much more to life. I can’t begin to tell you how inspired I am every day by so many of you. Life’s too short for shoulda’, coulda’, wouldas’.
And what does it all come down to? Ignore the naysayers, surround yourself with supportive people, maintain a positive attitude, ask questions, stay hungry for constant growth and learning, always remain humble while exuding confidence, work hard, and at the end of the day, enjoy the hell out of life. It’s a gift we should be thankful for every single day. How has hard work paid off for you this year? Go ahead and subscribe, won’t you?
