Leadership Quote - Amelia Earhart

Les Brown would say in his speeches "The graveyard is the richest place on earth because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled..." Why were they unfulfilled? I think the answer is Amelia's quote:

The Most Difficult Thing Is The Decision To Act, The Rest Is Merely Tenacity. 
- Amelia Earhart

Lots of people, myself included, have great ideas that never see the light of day. Because people don't want to risk action. So long as it stays an idea and not a reality there is no risk. Unfortunately, there is also no reward.

Will you let time pass by and miss out on your opportunity? Or will you take action? To wrap this up with another common phrase, it is easiest to steer a moving vehicle. Once you start to act, all it takes is tenacity to keep it going!

Amelia Earhart is an American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set records, authored best-selling books and was instrumental in the formation of an organization for female pilots, the Ninety-Nines.  Earhart disappeared in 1937 trying to circumnavigate the globe. It is one of the great mysteries of aviation and the fascination with her life and disappearance continues even today.
