There are two epiphanies one can have, that can change the course of your life…
The first, is the realization that thinking and dreaming big, is just as easy, and costs nothing more than thinking small, so always think big.
The second is that time is limited. We all work roughly 12 hours per day, so if you’re going to put in the same amount of time and effort no matter what, why not work on something big, and something bold that has the potential to change the world.
A gentleman I’ve come to know as a friend over the past year has dedicated his life to living this mindset, and he is truly changing the world as a result.
In 1994, Dr. Peter Diamandis founded the XPrize Foundation. The X PRIZE was created to offer a $10 million competition intended to inspire a new generation of private passenger-carrying spaceships. The prize was announced on May 18, 1996 in St. Louis, MO without any purse money or any teams.
26 Team competed in the contest which took place on September 29th, 2004 and the prize was ultimately one by SpaceShipOne when it became the first vehicle in history to successfully complete a manned flight to space on a privately built ship. It is safe to say that Peter was directly responsible for bringing humanity’s dreams of private spaceflight, to reality.
This is an extremely important interview with someone I find incredibly inspiring, and it certainly has the potential to change the course of your life, so please help me welcome, Dr. Peter Diamandis…
