The Wright brothers didn’t fly on their first attempt. They failed countless times before successfully gliding above the earth. In fact, many of their attempts could be viewed as downright embarrassing.
In their day, even the concept of human flight was blasphemy. It was enough to put their psychological condition on trial.
But thank God they ignored the pessimists, tried, failed, and tried again, and again, and again. They were willing to be wrong – no matter what the consequences. When this is the case, it’s nearly impossible to stand in a Maverick’s way.
In the end, what’s most important is taking initiative to move ideas out of one’s head and into the world. As Jonathan Fields once wrote, “Whether you’re right or wrong matters less than whether you’re moving and acting. Once you’re in motion, if you’re paying attention, it’s fairly easy to correct course. But, it all starts when you stop thinking about doing and start doing.”
Be a Maverick,
