In 2014, Amelia Rose Earhart took the trip of a lifetime when she circumnavigated the globe in a modern day aircraft. She completed the trip that her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart, was not able to accomplish in 1937.
The 28,000-mile journey was one that many believed was impossible. It took an abundance of planning, organization and perseverance on Earhart’s part.
“My 28,000 mile, 18 day global trek took two years to plan, almost fell apart more times than I can count and plenty of people told me I couldn’t make it happen,” Earhart writes on her website.
Although you might not be planning something as monumental as a flight around the world, you may be in the process of planning the next steps toward achieving your personal and professional goals. Like Earhart, you will be faced with some turbulence. Here are some tips to help you overcome obstacles and become one step closer to achieving your goals:
1. Create a plan.
A pilot never flies without a log, so why would you move forward without a game plan? Give yourself some direction and begin by setting realistic goals for yourself. Think about where you want to see yourself in five years and simply take it from there, brainstorming different ways to reach your destination.
The first step toward achieving your goals is to place yourself front and center. Create goals for yourself and ways that you plan on achieving those goals. This will help you stay on track, despite any unexpected turbulence.
3. Learn to love the turbulence.
Turbulence can appear out of thin air, changing the entire dynamic of your plans when you least expect it. Rather than shying away from turbulence, it is important to tackle it head-on and do all that you can to avoid a crash landing. Learn to love the turbulence by following through on your plan rather than letting it ruin all of your hard work.
