Female Visionary Spotlight – Eleanor Roosevelt

It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.
– Eleanor Roosevelt


This is a wonderful quote by the great Eleanor Roosevelt. In order to change the landscape in your life, you cannot simply spend your time wishing or hoping for change to come about, but it must come from a source within. It has to do with having the fortitude to act, which includes a course of action. So make that plan and more importantly … follow through.

Bio: Anna Eleanor Roosevelt; October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962 was an American political figure, diplomat and activist. She served as the First Lady of the United States from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office, making her the longest serving First Lady.

From 1935 until a month before her death, Eleanor wrote a syndicated column called “My Day.” She discussed topics of the moment, including prohibition and Pearl Harbor. She only missed her column once because of her husband’s death.

Eleanor wrote 27 books and more than 8,000 columns. She gave lectures, hosted a radio program and a television news show. She said, “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

She served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952. President Harry S. Truman later called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements.
