Millionaut Olsen: Never Give Up On Your Dream

South Africa’s The Herald newspaper has an interview with Greg Olsen, the third tourist to visit the International Space Station, that reveals some interesting facts about his trip:

Olsen admitted that travelling to space did not come cheaply, either financially or physically. His application for space travel had been turned down numerous times.

“I was medically disqualified for nine months due to the problem in my lungs Every time I had to reapply until I was finally accepted.

“If you want to do something in life, don‘t give up. This is the lesson I learnt in space.”

Olsen said he had had to sell his fibre optics company for $20- million (R210-million).

Some excellent advice from a very successful and determined person.
