“The more one does, the more one can do.” - Amelia Earheart

Listen Now:

Let’s learn from an incredibly inspiring historical figure, Amelia Earheart. To understand where this comes from let’s first be clear on how pioneering she was. Amelia Earheart is best known for being the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, but it’s important to understand the context of the time. 

She did this in the 1930s when women weren’t really allowed to be pilots, and only a decade after women earned the right to vote. This pioneering role is further cemented by her involvement as the first president of the Ninety-Nines, an organization dedicated to advancing female aviation. 

And this is what makes Earhart's words so powerful: “The more one does, the more one can do.”

She’s a classic example of “give me an inch and I’ll take a mile”. I’m sure that when she asked to learn how to be a pilot people laughed at her and told her she couldn’t. But she persevered and became a pilot. Then when she shared the idea to cross the Atlantic I’m sure people told her she was crazy. But she did it anyway. And of course when she became a vocal advocate for women’s opportunity in aviation she faced headwind (pun intended). But it didn’t stop her and she shifted an industry.

“The more one does, the more one can do.”

Our ultimate potential is undefined. It is impossible to ever reach our fullest potential. Self actualization is a process and not an endpoint. And the more that we breakthrough what we used to think was impossible, the more we find ourselves in new spaces to break through. 

So if I can encourage you - If you’re serious about living an extraordinary life and making an extraordinary impact, you’re not going to do it on the sidelines. And you’re certainly not going to arrive anywhere new if you keep doing the same things you’ve been doing.

Having the confidence to dream bigger and see more for yourself requires that you stand on a strong infrastructure. There are universal fundamentals that everyone needs to put themselves in a position to be at their very best.
