On this Mission
As Red Tails, the first, big budget, war movie about the adventures of the heroic, Tuskegee Airmen flies onto the big screen, it leaves more than a history lesson in it’s vapor trails——-it leaves hidden messages of how to achieve success. On the surface, Red Tails is just a big, loud, entertaining action movie about World War II fighter pilots, but by the time the movie ends and the credits roll, you become aware that it’s actually so much more.
Amidst the dizzying special effects lie strategies for keeping your self-respect while striving for success, in between the aerial dogfights there are directions on how you can use your determination to accomplish your goals, and underneath the rousing wartime speeches are hidden messages that outline the “exact” roadmap that should be followed to achieve great things!
What are these secret strategies, life lessons, and hidden messages? Here’s a brief description of each:
1) You always have greater potential inside of you than others can usually see. The Airmen never put limitations on what they could or couldn’t do. As a group, they recognized that accomplishing their goals in life depended more on how they saw themselves, as opposed to focusing only on how others saw them.
2) Time spent in preparation is never time wasted. The Airmen trained much longer than most other pilots in their era did. They used the time they spent waiting in the wings to hone skills that served them well when their moment of opportunity arose.
3) If you stay ready, you’ll never have to get ready. The Airmen held themselves to such a high standard of discipline and competence that they were confident and prepared when their time to shine finally arrived.
4) Courageous convictions can drive your dreams into existence. The Airmen had a strong belief in their abilities and a powerful passion for their cause. They had a boldness that would not be satisfied with anything short of accomplishing their mission.
5) There are no charges that can be successfully brought against excellence. The Airmen were so good at what they did that their quality of performance spoke louder in their defense than anything that their critics could ever speak against them.
