“If God had meant man to fly, he would have given him wings.”
-Bishop Milton Wright
Just ask Bishop Milton Wright, the founder of Huntingdon College in Huntingdon, Indiana, who is reputed to have pointed out the self-evident truth in the quote above during a sermon he delivered in 1890.
Some people though, are not good at accepting self-limiting, and supposedly self-evident truths. Like two of Bishop Wright’s sons, who thirteen years later built and flew the first successful, man powered, heavier-than-air flying machine. Their names were Wilbur and Orville.
How many of us are refusing to listen to the often “logical” reasons and limitations that are put forth about whether we truly can fly to the heights of our greatest dreams? It is difficult to go against the current and say “NO, I won’t believe in limitations.” and “YES, I will believe in the dreams that fill my heart.” I am not saying that simply believing is enough, because believing without action doesn’t make things happen. But I do have a question?
“Is it truly possible to BELIEVE, truly BELIEVE in your dreams, without taking the necessary steps to make them come true?”
I don’t think so. Because if we truly believe that our dreams are possible, then there would be nothing that could stop us from claiming the JOY of living them!
Will you be the Bishop and think and speak logical limitations, or will you be the sons and defy all gravity that stands in your way to creating wings to lift you to your dreams?
