“According to the laws of aerodynamics, the bumblebee can’t fly either, but the bumblebee doesn’t know anything about the laws of aerodynamics, so it goes ahead and flies anyway.”
I don’t know much about bumblebees. I do know that when I see more than two or more of them in a general area, one of us has to leave. I leave. And when it comes to aerodynamics, well, I know that it is how the Wright Brothers took on the law of gravity to get their plane into flight. They understood that when a liquid’s flow speed increases, pressure decreases. With that being known, an airplane can fly because the airspeed flowing over the top of the wings is lower than the airspeed beneath the wings allowing its weight to be supported in the air.
Let’s talk about the bumblebees again. Because no one has ever told the bumblebee he can’t fly, he goes on about his business and buzzes anywhere he wants. He flies without fear. He flies with confidence. Don’t you wish you were like the bumblebee? I do. I wish I didn’t know anything about obstacles or failures and other things I let steal away my dreams. Where would we be right now had we not allowed ourselves to be grounded by fear? What’s your gravity? I believe it’s time to learn from the bumblebee. Fly anyway. Won’t you take flight with me?
