You must see it before you can see it and if you can’t see it, chances are you will never see it. In short, you have to be able to picture your victory before it comes to pass. At the beginning of the 1900s. people had dreamed of flying for a long time. the United States Army developed an airplane in 1903, but the plane would not fly.
The New York Times wrote that maybe in “one million to 10 million years man may be able to make an airplane that could fly.” Two brothers, Orville and Wilbur Wright also had a dream to fly: a calling on their lives to sail across the sky. From their humble beginnings as bicycle shop owners, they nurtured their dream with the study of birds and other flying things. They devoured books on aviation and talked to other individuals who had tried to develop flying machines.
Finally, they succeeded in keeping a propeller-driven aircraft in the air for 12 seconds. This event happened just eight days past the time when the attempt made by the Army had failed and that statement was made by the New York Times. At that point, they could have given up. Long before that now famous day at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the Wright brothers saw it. They saw it and supported their vision with the necessary tools of study, research, and preparation to bring it to pass. (excerpt from The Rabbit Story)
