Carey Lohrenz grew up in a high-performing military family. Her dad was a former United States Marine Corps aviator, and she grew up hoping to be an “awesome warrior aviator just like him.”
When Carey grew up, she achieved her dream – she became the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy.
Today, Carey is a speaker and author who inspires others to do more by sharing the fundamentals that helped her achieve success in the cockpit at Mach 2.
Carey never accepted the notion that she wasn’t capable of anything, although people didn’t expect much from her. Her family was told, repeatedly, that she would live a very limited life because she was born without fully-formed hips.
Carey spent the first two years of her life in a plaster cast, but her family persisted until, against the odds, she was able to walk.
“When you’re growing up and you see pictures of yourself and hear stories of how many people said you weren’t ever going to be capable of anything, it’s going to do one of two things: it’ll either break you or light a fire under your tail.” –Carey Lohrenz
In Carey’s book, Fearless Leadership: High Performance Lessons From the Flight Deck, she she walks readers through the three fundamentals a leader must possess to exhibit real fearlessness: courage, tenacity, and integrity.
Developing those fundamentals requires action. High achievers aren’t just lucky – they try and try again, even when they’re stuck. Simply stated, “The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.”
