Amelia Earhart: The Courage to Try

Amelia Earhart: The Courage to Try

“Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn’t be done.”

Amelia Earhart is one of the most iconic women of all time. She set over 16 records in aviation and continuously pushed herself to reach the next goal. She’s perfect for #wowwomanwednesday.

In today’s world, we are often crippled by fear. We worry about what could go wrong. We worry about the details and if we’re capable. We worry about what others will think about us. And the ultimate worry: “What if I fail?” 

Amelia believed that women should try to do what men have tried. She was passionate about trying. She also believed that failure is an invitation for others to try. What an incredible mindset: failure is an invitation, not an end. 

So what doors will you open today? What will you try to do? Maybe something that you’ve been afraid to try, but secretly longing to do? 

When will you stop floating, and start s o a r i n g like Amelia?
