At least as far back as the ancient myth of Icarus, humans longed to fly - but it wasn't until December 17, 1903, on the windy dunes of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, that the dream finally came true. And it was all thanks to Orville and Wilbur Wright, two former bicycle mechanics who built their first toy plane - a rubber-band powered rotary - when they were just children.
Find out how the two brothers, working quietly and persistently, ultimately solved the "flying problem" that had grounded so many others; what setbacks they experienced as they developed and improved their machine (including a tragic crash); and what additional "firsts" followed after they triumphantly took to the skies.

Because of these two men, over two million people have jobs today in the aviation industry. Because of these two men, America was able to land a man on the moon and bring him back safely. Because of these two men, people can see the world in days compared to months by boat.
This is a PERFECT example of having blind faith, persistence, determination, creating the situations that you want and focusing on your goals while making great scarifies.
Every future entrepreneur should read this book.
