6 Incredible Features of the Wright Brothers That Enabled them to Successfully Fly a Plane

Published

on

The Wright Brothers, Orville (1871-1948) and Wilbur (1867 -1912), are famous for flying the first plane. Before studying them, I believed they were extraordinary folks. However, after conducting an extensive study on the two brothers, I realized they were ordinary people who appeared extraordinary because they possessed the following features.

The Wright Brothers: –

  1. Were Voracious Readers

The Wright brothers loved reading books. They read all sorts of books, including engineering books, ancient books, and autobiographies of great inventors.

Reading seemed to have contributed to the invention of the plane because reading boosts imagination and creativity. It also enabled the Wright brothers to know where other people who tried to invent the airplane failed.

  1. Were Passionate About the Concept of Flying

The Wright brothers were obsessed with flight. They read every book about flight, and most of their conversations were about flight.

  1. Never Gave Up

The Wright brothers never gave up even though most of their attempts to fly failed. People don’t know that most of their planes crashed before they created the plane that flew successfully in 1903.

  1. Were Risk-Takers

The Wright brothers risked death because they sometimes crash-landed while flying.

Besides, they attempted to fly despite knowing that many people had died while trying to fly a plane. The Wright Brothers didn’t care: they were bold enough to risk their lives.

  1. Believed in the Impossible

Flying appeared to be delusional during the 19th century because many people had died while trying to fly. People had already given up on the idea that human beings could fly. However, the Wright brothers believed in the impossible: they believed flight was possible, and they eventually flew.

  1. Ignored the Naysayers

Many people told the Wright Brothers that they would never fly a plane because it was unrealistic for a heavy metal with a person in it to fly. Even physicians argued that metal was heavier than air, and therefore, it was impossible to fly a plane. However, the Wright Brothers ignored all the naysayers and focused on their goal.

Concluding Remarks

I wrote this piece because I wanted you to know that successful people are not extraordinary people as we always believe. They just did what many people don’t do: they were persistent, they never gave up, they always read books, they believed in the impossible, they were massive risk-takers, and they didn’t care about other people’s opinions.

Don’t Let the Society’s Idea of Success Drive You Crazy

Don’t Let the Society’s Idea of Success Drive You Crazy

 ‘I desire a good life for my family, but that does not have to include a range of cars, a yacht in every port or another million.’ – Philip Gardiner

According to modern society, a successful individual is a person with lots of money, mansions, flashy cars, yachts, and other expensive trendy products. Most of us strive to live by this idea, and for this reason, we are stressed because this type of success always seems far away.

Furthermore, we buy trendy things we don’t need, and we take loans to buy these things so that we live by this idea of success. We then notice that these things are useless to our well-being and succumb to depression after realizing that we’ve gotten in debt as a result of trying to live by the society’s idea of success.

The sad thing is most of us start thinking we are unworthy because we haven’t met this type of success, and we constantly think about the future and worry whether we’ll achieve success.

We should discard this idea of success and prevent it from governing our lives and driving us crazy by realizing that it’s not a universal truth since it’s just an idea constructed after the industrial revolution.

A long time ago, people were not obsessed with attaining material success because they focused on spiritual development, accessing higher dimensions, understanding the universe, and becoming moral. And although these individuals valued material success and had ways of measuring it, they seldom obsessed over it.

Therefore, the idea that a person’s worth is determined by material success is a modern idea, and it should not drive you crazy. We were not created in a magical world – spinning on nothingness – to obsess over material success. Instead, we were created in this magical world, with millions of possibilities, to live whatever life we want.

For this reason, we should stop trying to align with an idea of material success that was created by capitalists so that we work in their companies 24/7, participate in expanding their companies by buying several products, and waste our money on expensive but useless things.

We should let our hearts guide us in creating our goals, and we should go after them even when we’ll not attain the society’s idea of success by attaining them. As well, we should also stop worrying and avoid thinking we are crazy when our goals don’t align with the society’s idea of success.

Lastly, we should strive to do whatever leads to fulfillment, and discard society’s idea of success because it makes us focus too much on the future, and it might eventually drive us crazy.

The 5 Major Stages You Must Go Through When Chasing Your Dreams

Published

Shows the difficulty involved in dream chasing

After studying the biographies of many successful folks, I realized that all of them went through the same stages of dream chasing. I summarized these stages into five stages, which I believe you’ll also go through if you are chasing your dreams.

Here are they:

Stage 1 – Idea

Here, you’ll give birth to a great idea that you’ll want to turn into reality. For instance, if you are an aspiring writer, you’ll want to turn your thoughts into a best-selling book, and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll discover a wonderful business idea that you’ll want to turn into a successful company.

Stage 2 – Enthusiasm

After discovering the idea, you’ll visualize the life you’ll live when you’ll achieve your dreams, and you’ll tell your friends and family about this life. You’ll then research on how you’ll turn your idea into reality, and you’ll start working enthusiastically because you’ll want to live your dream as soon as possible.

Stage 3 – Disappointment

After working for a period of 6 – 18 months, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll make little progress despite working hard. For instance, if you are an aspiring vlogger, you’ll realize that getting 10,000 subscribers is not easy, or if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll be disappointed because your business might fail to make profits.

Besides this, you’ll realize that dream chasing demands funding, but few people are willing to support you. Primarily, you’ll realize that it might take longer to achieve your dreams. These challenges will make you want to give up.

Most people stop chasing their dreams at this stage.

Stage 4 – Perseverance

If you really want to achieve your dreams, you’ll decide to persevere. You’ll face obstacles fearlessly, and you’ll commit yourself to overcoming them. Besides, you’ll avoid everything and everyone that might prevent you from achieving your dreams. Also, rejection, failure, and naysayers won’t stop you from working hard.

You’ll also realize that only those who persevere achieve their dreams, and you’ll work like hell. Moreover, you’ll strive to make the journey enjoyable so that you don’t give up.

Most folks make their journey enjoyable by making friends with like-minded people.

Stage 5 – Success

After working for a long period without quitting, you’ll become highly skilled, and many people will love your services/products. If you are a writer, many people will be willing to buy your books, and if you are a businessman, people will be interested in your products. You’ll then use the money you’ll earn to buy whatever you want and travel wherever you want. You’ll be so fulfilled.

Conclusion

It’s easy to dream, but difficult to achieve dreams. Most people quit when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period before they achieve their dreams. Only those who persevere succeed because they never give up.

SEE YOU AT THE TOP

THE END.
