How many times have you heard this? You can do whatever you set your mind to do! Well, I believe we all have at some point during our growing years heard this from those who are the closest to us.


I can hear parents encouraging their kids to press and believe in whatever you set out to do.

If it is a doctor then be it, if you choose to be an astronaut then do it if that is what you choose to do.

These words can easily be replaced with the emphatic word Launch“!

Do whatever you set your mind to do. There will be obstacles and times that make you think twice about going after your dream but if you set your mind to do it over time it will come to fruition.


I can hear a parent giving the analogy of what it takes for the successful Launch” of a spaceship into outer space.

Well, son/daughter, there is much preparation that goes into the successful Launch of a spaceship.

  1. The astronauts have to go through training for the difference in atmospheric pressure which will affect their body weight.
  2. The astronauts have to train eating a different food for sustenance while in outer space.
  3. The astronauts have to train to handle the workload because of the difference in atmospheric pressure.

These points and others would be referenced to the child in order to give a picture of what would be needed and expected.

The parent would explain that just as the astronaut needs to train in preparation for the difference in atmospheric pressure, he likewise should train expecting that there will be obstacles to overcome while on the pursuit of his/her goal.

The parent will also note that your trials will be unique for you! Just as the astronauts’ food is uniquely made for consumption and sustenance the trials and test you endure will better prepare you for success.

Lastly, the parent would note that while on your pursuit expect the workload to be challenging! Because of the responsibility and weight of the job you must train to handle it.

Remember a lot goes into a successful Launch!

You have what it takes, just set your mind to it.
