Roger Bannister was the first person on record to break the 4-minute mile. It became a psychological breakthrough, demonstrating to all that the feat was possible. The very next year three runners broke the 4-minute mile in a single race. Knowing that it was humanly possible to run a mile in under 4 minutes, people began to train more intelligently to join the club. Now it’s common.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is today’s political Bannister. Under 30 years old, and she’s breaking barriers. AOC shows that maturity matters in politics…not age. The amount of information and social activity we’re engaged in is exponentially greater than previous generations. AOC has 2.5 million followers on Instagram. She’s entered her political career with far greater influence than any freshman politician prior. We’re training differently.
Amazing. Ain’t about her politics. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shows focus.
Bill Gates. Warren Buffett. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Role models can have different views…but they all have the same disposition.
