1. Remain humble.
Even though Neil Armstrong was the 1st person to walk on the moon, he remained humble and thankful for the accomplishments made by him and his team. He knew that this achievement was not just about him, but a celebration for mankind!

2.Keep going through either mundane or hard work.
Neil Armstrong knew early on that he had a desire to fly. He worked and researched in his love of aviation for years before he went in space. He teaches me that dedication and hard work does pay off. So keep moving forward!

3. Master Your Craft.
When Neil Armstrong was just a young boy at 15 years old he realized his passion for aviation. He would work several jobs just to afford flying lessons before he was actually able to drive. Even after he retired he still worked in his field, teaching, and being a chair on several boards. He spent years perfecting his mastery even after Apollo 11.

4.Success is never ending
After great successes we should remember, like Neil Armstrong to keep going. Just because you reach one goal doesn’t mean your story ends there. After Apollo 11 he went on continuing more work, using his knowledge to benefit others, and even becoming a professor.

5.Team work makes the dream work.
While they were in space, Michael Collins drove the main spacecraft while Neil and Aldrin descended to the moon on a separate carrier. He utilized his team because he realized that there is strength in numbers.

6. Be prepared for opportunity.
While doing his research, serving in the military, and joining NASA was all a part of the journey towards his successful completion of Apollo 11. Remember preparation is progress! Keep preparing in your dreams.

7. Grow from your mistakes.
One of his 1st flights in space a mistake was made and the spacecraft went flying out of control. What if he had quit? What if he would of given up? But he kept going. It wasn’t until his 3rd flight that he stepped on the moon. He didn’t let his mistake prevent him from moving forward. His mistake did not paralysis him.
