Another amazing woman. Amelia Earhart was a pioneer in avionics being the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean alone on an airplane. She was also a woman’s rights activist and the first woman to receive “The Distinguished Flying Cross” for her achievement.
She established other records and wrote books about her experience has a pilot.
I would say that she is 100% correct in her statement:
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.
How many of us think and over think our goals and what do we want in life but never actually do it? I think this is because we never really decide to act, and when we decide to we don’t really mean it or want to work for it.
Choose one goal to work on and decide to act on it. Write it on a piece of paper, build a vision board, put it all over the place:
- Your bathroom mirror
- The refrigerator door
- Your phone, put a reminder 3 times a day
Surround yourself with visual and sound reminders of your goal and your mind will figure out a way to do it.
For example, maybe you wish to exercise more often. How many times do you want to do it each week? When will you do it? in the morning? At lunch time? In the evening? Think about it. Prepare your clothes in advance (the night before) so they are in front of you first thing in the morning and as soon as you need them.
Just do it and in time it becomes a habit and you don’t have to think about it anymore. You will do it because it becomes part of yourself.
However, to reach this point you have to act on your decision.
Have you have experienced this? That when you decide to act, the rest is easier?
