“The most effective way to do it, is to do it.” –Amelia Earhart
I found this quote the other day and really liked it. A lot of times I’ll think of something I really want to do and tell myself that I’ll get around to it…but I never do. Sometimes, you just have to have confidence in yourself and do something, no matter how scary or hard it seems.
Just like Amelia Earhart did, who said the quote. She was the first woman to fly an airplane solo across the Atlantic Ocean, and set lots of other records in aviation, the art and science of flying. I was always sort of fascinated by Amelia Earhart because she not only accomplished so many things as a pilot, but she also wrote best-selling books about her experiences and formed an organization for other female pilots called The Ninety-Nines. She was incredibly courageous and took a lot of risks in order to make her dreams a reality. Unfortunately, she went missing during her attempt to fly all the way around the world in 1937. It’s sad, but also rather mysterious, since nobody knows what happened to her. But I think it’s awesome that she was last seen by the world trying to break another record and gain another achievement. Who knows, maybe she achieved it after all but nobody ever found out about it!
