Inspired by a simple, yet profound, quote by NASA astronaut Cady Coleman, we are talking about how showing up can be the tipping point for change.
In an interview with NPR, Cady, along with fellow NASA astronaut Serena Auñón, European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, and NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan, spoke about her experience at NASA as a woman. When sharing a story of how she would show up, uninvited, to spacesuit training, Cady said, “It used to surprise them that I had the spacesuit capability and I’m very proud to be qualified in a spacesuit. There’s ways to change things, just by showing up and doing your job.”
Sometimes, people get stuck in old ways of thinking that exclude you. But, if you just show up, you can begin to change people’s minds and get what you want out of life!
