Okay, so not all profound quotes have a distinguished author, but they can still be profound. I saw this one on a T shirt on an attractive woman on the beach at the Dominican Republic and was glad I took the time to read it. For several reasons. Watching my wife’s efforts of working on her instrument pilot rating has been a prime example. This has been a year-long project that has been as hard as getting a PhD degree. Not only does one have to learn all matter of physics, meteorology, navigation, rules, regulations, the language of talking to controllers, higher mathematics, and interpreting charts, one also has to have the physical and mental skill to be able to put an airplane through its paces for a successful and safe flight. I saw her frustration when she began this project. She was totally overwhelmed by her abject ignorance of all of those elements, with self-doubt that she would ever be able to have the faintest understanding of any of it.
But with an enormous conviction to study, understanding, and practice, her mastery of the project slowly began to develop. At times it has been very frustrating, but she has doggedly pursued her studies and flying, and her mastery of this project has been absolutely astounding. She is proof that nothing gets easier, but if we’re smart and resourceful, persistent and apply ourselves fully, we do get stronger – incredibly stronger – allowing us to prevail in our goals, whatever they be.
