I came across this comic yesterday depicting the recent advice astronaut Chris Hadfield of Canada gave to a young fan during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session where participants were literally able to ask any questions they had to Astronaut Hadfield who is currently aboard the ISS. The fan asked for any advice he may have to young kids who were aspiring to be an astronaut. The quote shown in this cartoon was Astronaut Hadfield’s response.
Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you’d be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become.
What I found especially interesting about this quote is that I have had the chance to meet and talk to many astronauts and the advice I have received has been similar to Astronaut Hadfield’s advice. This comic by Zen Pencils is so powerful I just had to share it here. Every kid should see this comic and hopefully will find motivation to shape their careers whether they want to be astronauts, doctors, scientists or whatever their dream may be.
One side note: Astronaut Hadfield is currently flying around the earth’s orbit on the International Space Station and was in orbit during this Reddit session. He has become very popular using social media as a way to share his experience and inspire others. He is known for tweeting amazing photos and videos from space. He also participated in NASA’s first Google+ Hangout from space on February 22, 2013. He will take over as commander when Expedition 35 starts in March 2013. He will be the first Canadian commander of the ISS.national counties building society community benefit society yorkshire building society app the british psychological society nationwide building society customer service skipton building society savings accounts children's society royal society of art society cafe oxford derbyshire ornithological society blind society skipton building society savings hedgehog preservation society royal society of public health newcastle building society isa nationwide building society reference number monmouth building society what is a building society reference number lunar society co founder coventry building society set up i blame society society cafe bristol piers gaveston society yorkshire building society savings rates yorkshire building society bradford what teachers prefer aware of their place in society guernsey literary and potato peel society bath building society for intermediaries alzheimer's society shop british society of gastroenterology national secular society royal society of biology british pharmacological society beltex sheep society thule society british goat society tipton building society the law society of scotland member of a religious society linnean society highland cattle society national autistic society jobs santander building society building society roll number barclays nutrition society society of wanderers society of will writers nationwide building society phone number what does society mean newcastle building society login personal finance society the abbeyfield society private society xxx alzheimer society newcastle building society savings building society account number society for acute medicine the bible society neil perry dead poets society essex birdwatching society newcastle building society log in perfume society nottingham building society interest rates royal television society cat protection society national eczema society menopause society british interplanetary society budgerigar society sickle cell society skipton building society mortgage abbey national building society national osteoporosis society the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society cast building society roll number lloyds hanley economic building society society 1989 psychedelic society barnsley building society british pain society yorkshire building society huddersfield royal horticultural society shop cheshire building society coventry building society regular saver the lounge society study of rights and duties of members of society crossword britain's most famous amateur dramatic society crossword european society of medicine national dahlia society poundland appreciation society autism society uk royal economic society building society near me chiltern society kent building society lunar society co founder crossword clue capitalist society the society netflix british driving society the stitcher society european society of cardiology incorporated society of musicians cast of high society "intitle:""index of"" justice society world war ii 2022" richard iii society benedict society skipton building society mortgages best friends animal society derbyshire building society building society vs bank nationwide building society redemption statement the guernsey literary and potato peel society dutch society procuring english beer law society find a lawyer mythical society south hampshire historical aviation society nationwide building society roll number carp society building society savings accounts 20th century society royal society for the prevention of cruelty to animals find a lawyer law society potato peel pie society ayrshire cattle society veterinary defence society family building society intermediaries society of friends the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society book the alzheimers society cumberland building society internet banking m s society scotland george formby society the society netflix review lunar society the plumbob tea society newcastle building society lisa society meme tolkien society norwich and peterborough building society family building society login british thoracic society guidelines the melton building society leeds building society savings accounts law society gazette jobs justice society dystopian society high society (2022 tv series) menace to society cast society house
