The Sky Is The Limit
Posted On: 2021-02-12


Cub Scouts, it wasn't long ago that we heard some people say: "The sky is the limit." That meant that a man could make anything of himself that he wanted... at least on earth. Well, that limit is now off. There is almost no limit to what you can aspire to do, either on earth or in space. Our astronauts have shown us that.

Colonel 'Buzz' Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, was a member of Troop 12 in Montclair, New Jersey. He said to a group of Scouts: "Set your goals high and settle for nothing less than accomplishment. Don't settle for mediocrity."

How well you perform as a man will depend on how you accept the new challenge which says, "The sky is not the limit." A Cub Scout who does his best in everything he undertakes now is preparing himself for that new challenge. If you want to aim for the stars, you must remember that you are building your launching pad right now by your willingness and initiative in every task you tackle at home, in church, in school, and in Scouting.
