Neil Armstrong, he was the first person to set his foot on the moon.
But, do you know who was supposed to be the first person? Many don’t know His name is Edwin C Aldarin….
He was the pilot for the Apollo mission.
He was working for American Airforce.
Moreover he had experience of space walking, hence selected as the pilot.
Neil Armstrong worked for the American Navy. He was selected for his courage as co-pilot. When the Apollo mission landed on moon, they received a command from NASA, “pilot first”, But Aldarin was hesitant, “what will happen”, “will I get sucked in or will I burn out”, etc.
The hesitation was not for hours, but few seconds. In the meantime, NASA sent the next command, “co-pilot next”.
Within, next second, Neil Armstrong put his foot on the moon and became part of world history. World history was changed in one second. Though Aldarin had the qualification and talent, because of hesitation, he is not recognized by many people. The world remembers only person who comes first. This is a good example of how people lose out because of hesitation and fear.
Whenever you see the moon , remember this a moment of hesitation can stop us from greatest victory.
We all have great potential in us, the only thing that stops us from achieving what we are supposed to achieve is our hesitation, fear and shyness.
