Think big thoughts: two images from the 1909 Paris Air Show held at the Grand Palais

Maybe your life’s vision is set too low.

Take the Paris Air Show of 1909 for inspiration, and think of how far people with vision, intelligence, ambition, and imagination managed to reach in just the past one hundred years. Can you imagine where we’ll be a hundred years from now? Don’t you wish you could see it? What big thing are you doing with your life?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              .

And here’s a second image from the same exhibition year. Can you believe that just 60 years after these photos were taken, humans walked on the moon? Are you sure you can’t make more of your life than you are?
