Handshake excerpt – Sally Kristen Ride
Here is an excerpt/preview of Chapter 3 of Handshake. Thanks for the comments. Please, keep them coming!
Sally Kristen Ride and the Choice of Personal Development:
In April of 1982, Sally’s years of personal development had a giant pay off when NASA announced that she was selected to be part of the crew for the STS-7, or seventh shuttle flight, on the Challenger space shuttle.
This announcement made history! Sally Kristen Ride would become the first woman to ever journey into space. Her years of hard work, late night studying, and pursuit of personal growth had paid off in a way that maybe she had never imagined. Dr. Ride’s choice to pursue personal development placed her in the history books and opened the door to a journey that most will never experience.
Her six day, two hour flight into space in June of 1983 was a giant success! All that NASA had hoped to accomplish was completed. Although the journey into space had ended in just six short days, the journey of personal growth and development for Sally had just begun…
… Personal development will open doors for you just as it did for Sally Kristen Ride. It will open the doors of opportunity and allow you to walk through them. When you realize that learning and growing is a life long journey you will see that along the way opportunity will knock and you will be prepared for it.
IN THIS CHAPTER YOU WILL LEARN THESE BENEFITS OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT:
1. Prepares you for future opportunities
2. Keeps you ahead of the game
3. Creates other avenues for success
Until next time,
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.
