MINDSET with Gambrah Sampeney Kwabena Adjei: Virgin Galactic flight


The amazing quality of the human has to do with advancement.

Nothing in this world has the ability to conquer us or make us go extinct.

No wonder it is said that an asteroid or a force beyond this world is what has the capacity to destroy the earth.

I am always fascinated about the advancement taking place with in the business world with regard to dealing with new territories like space.

I know that most of us have got a certain perception about advancement, but it is not necessarily something bad in itself.

Advancement is the process of promoting a cause or plan.

Most companies are now gradually developing into something they never thought they could be.

For example, Facebook and Tik Tok have monetised their platforms, Twitter is now X. Companies are pushing the limits of AI (artificial intelligence) in almost every facet of our lives.

The beauty of every challenge is that it creates an opportunity for each one of us to search deeper within us; and in most cases, we discover that there is more to us than what we previously thought of ourselves.

For instance, Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic failed at business ventures like Virgin Cars, Virgin Brides, Virgin Cola, and so on. He holds an optimistic view of failure.

He has said: “I suppose the secret to bouncing back is not only to be unafraid of failures, but to use them as motivational and learning tools.

There is nothing wrong with making mistakes as long as you don’t make the same ones over and over again.

The human being is very resilient.

Another fascinating quest currently happening within our world has to do with the space within our skies.

And it has surely happened.

Now the space market is a tourist destination.

For the first time, a mother and daughter, Anastatia Mayers and Keisha Schahaff, toured the space as tourist; and joining them was an 80-year-old Jon Goodwin.

The group experienced zero gravity on Virgin Galactic’s first tourism flight.

Virgin Galactic is a spaceflight company owned by Richard Branson.

Finally, as countries like Ghana buzz about tourism opportunities within their area, others too are pushing the frontier by advancing the tourism search beyond Earth into space.

The idiom the sky is not the limit is true.

In other words, there are no limits, and anything is possible.

The lives we now enjoy today were mostly achieved through the human advancement beyond what was seen as impossible within the years they were thought of and imagined, so don’t give up on that good cause for the future or next generation.
