Take Control of Your Dream - It Is In Your No BS Manifesting Course Hands As a kid at 15 he loved aviation , and knew it would be difficult for his parents to pay for the flying lessons. He took up odd jobs to save money for the flying lessons. He dreamed big and worked hard to make his dream come true. Neil Armstrong by the age of 17 had flown two long-distance solo flights and had done his paperwork to start classes at Purdue to pursue a program in aeronautical engineering.
"I think we're going to the moon because it's in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It's by the nature of his deep inner soul... we're required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream" - Neil Armstrong. Things Will Go Wrong; Don't Panic - Do Your Best Neil was known for not panicking when things go wrong. He took two trips into space; his first journey was in 1966 as the commander of Gemini 8 mission, which was about to end in a disaster. Neil Armstrong kept his cool and brought the spacecraft home safe after a thruster rocket malfunctioned and caused it to spin out of control.
During the last stages of Apollo 11 the team realized that the Eagle lunar module's auto-pilot was preparing to land the crew on the slope of a huge moon crater. Neil Armstrong said "The computer showed us where it intended to land, and it was a very bad location, on the side of a large crater about 100-150m in diameter with very steep slopes covered with very large boulders -- not a good place to land at all." He took charge and overrode the automatic pilot to avoid landing in the big rocky crater. The landing was full of danger; the lander had only about 30 seconds of fuel left when Armstrong put it down on Moon. After landing he calmly radioed back to Mission Control on Earth, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."
Throw Fear Out of Window As a U.S. Navy pilot, Armstrong flew 78 combat missions during the Korean War. In his stint at NASA he tested many high-speed aircraft, including the X-15, which could reach a top speed of 4,000 miles per hour. He won three medals in Korean War. Armstrong had several Ariel accidents and some were a close shave. The accidents did not make him fearful of flying; it just emboldened him. He kept on dreaming bigger and bigger. "There can be no great accomplishment without risk "- Neil Armstrong
