354 - Mike Massimino: You Can’t Control the Outcome, So Keep Doing What You Love

It took Mike Massimino 11 years to achieve his childhood dream of becoming an astronaut. He was rejected 3 times. But he never stopped his pursuit to achieve his dream. He writes about it in his New York Times bestselling book “Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe”. This is Mike’s 2nd time on the podcast and I wanted to ask him all the questions that have stuck with me ever since that first interview. Like how he kept trying even after that 1st rejection.   Links and Resources
