Apollo 13's Captain Jim Lovell on Staying Mentally Strong (ep. 366)

Live Inspired Podcast with John O'Leary

Captain Jim Lovell has travelled further into space than any other person and is one of only three to travel to the moon twice. Possibly even more profound, he has witnessed more than 260 sunrises from space.  Infamously the mission meant to be his third trip to the moon, Apollo 13, was cut short when a tank exploded. When I first spoke to Jim in July of 2018, I was in awe – he has been a hero of mine since I was a boy. Today, I revisit parts of that historic conversation because it has never been more relevant. As we're each faced with our own unique challenges today, let Jim’s guidance on staying mentally strong in the face of unforeseen adversity inspire you. SHOW NOTES: When the odds are that long, how do you respond? “We thought about what we had to overcome, specifically: We had to figure out how to get back on course to get home. We had to decide what we had to turn off to save critical energy. We had to realize that each time we, we were slowly poisoning ourselves with carbon dioxide. We had to learn how to connect our current system to the old one because they weren’t built to connect. Did you enjoy Jim Lovell's adventurous spirit? Listen to our entire conversation including what inspired his dream of going to space, meeting his wife and so much more on Live Inspired Podcast ep. 90.

Now I've Heard Everything

Jim Lovell was the commander of the three-man crew, whose mission was to land on the Moon. But just two days into the mission, something went terribly wrong. Tom Hanks, who played Jim Lovell in the movie Apollo 13, uttered the words that have become a catchphrase.  But in the moment when level actually said those words, he and his crew mates were dangerously close to death. In 1994, Jim Lovell co-authored a book about the Apollo 13 mission, and that's when I met him.
