Move on

Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, didn’t grow up dreaming about becoming an astronaut.

She wanted to be a professional tennis player, reports Lynn Sherr in the June 17, 2014, issue of The Dallas Morning News. Sherr is the author of a new book Sally Ride: America’s First Woman in Space.

“When she realized her forehand wasn’t good enough, she dove back into physics, which led to making space history. It’s the idea that you don’t dwell on the past; when something doesn’t work out, you move on. What a great lesson that is.”
