Breaking Barriers


Back on October 14th, 1947, U.S. Air Force Captain Chuck Yeager becomes the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound.

For years, many aviators believed that man was not meant to fly faster than the speed of sound. Yeager flew the X-1 nicknamed the Glamorous Glennis So Cal flying faster than the speed of sound.

Today, let's break some of your own barriers today.

Reach past what you think you can do and go beyond, physically, emotionally, maybe it's something small, maybe something much greater but go. Go for it.
