Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.

If you were a bumblebee and knew that scientifically it was impossible to fly... Do you think you would be able to?

We are all taught that the entire universe can be explained by mathematics, but what about the story of the bumblebee? According to the greatest minds of science it cannot fly. Aerodynamics says it is impossible. They are too fat, their wings are too small, and they can't flap their little wings fast enough to be able to fly. But what does the bumble bee do? It ignores all the great minds, the skeptics and the science... and it just goes ahead and flies.

Now imagine if they knew they couldn't fly.  How many bumblebees would overcome the knowledge and prove that it's possible? You see the bumblebee has a purpose on this earth just like each and every one of us.  Their job is to pollinate the planet and create honey and against all odds they overcome what is seemingly impossible and do what they were put on this planet to do.

So, if a little bumblebee can defy the laws of mathematics and achieve flight then what can we achieve as humans? There is a little saying out there "If you think you can or you think you can't, you are right." Many times in our lives we are all told that there are things you can and cannot do.  Well, I'm here to tell you that "where there is a will, there is a way" and if there is something in life you want ot a goal you have to achieve you can do it.  If anyone tells you that it is impossible just remember the little bumblebee and don't let their limiting beliefs become your own.

What goals have you set for yourself? Are you actively striving to achieve them? Are you putting in the maximum effort? Or are you buying into a belief that the bumblebee can't fly? Because for every person that says it can't be done I can show you someone who can do it.

We all have the ability to reach our goals, become who and what we wish to be.  It's all up to you to believe in yourself and follow your dreams.

So the next time anyone doubts you and your goals ask yourself: if you were a bumblebee would you be able to fly?

Reach for your dreams! -Piper O'Neill Mrs Australia International
