OUR THREE PILLARS

OUR THREE PILLARS

The Earhart Club has three overarching pillars that emphasize humility, compassion and empathy – the foundation of human connection. Our values are in contrast to the immediate gratification, power and control pathway that isolates and diminishes connectivity and fulfillment.We have two distinct needs as human beings – humility and belonging. Every civilization has independently established a “higher power” reflective of our intrinsic humility and need to be in service of something greater than ourselves. We also need to matter, to be relevant, to belong, to be accepted, to be enough – just the way we are. This cannot be manufactured. Curiosity and understanding nurtures this sense of self and takes time, patience and a decision to see the best in each other and ourselves.

Curiosity

Understanding

Values

Our kids are born endlessly curious and endlessly self assured. Being curious allows us to understand the world around us and where we fit in it. Curiosity is at the root of lifelong learning, keeps us young and humble. Curiosity allows us to grow and evolve as our understanding expands.

“Curiosity is the cure for boredom – there is no cure for curiosity” – The Earhart Club

Understanding ourselves and the world around us and feeling understood are among our most basic needs. We are born curious and will naturally explore and ask endless questions until we learn to hide our vulnerability by “knowing”. Too often “knowledge” gets in the way of understanding. Healthy human connections are built on mutual understanding.

“Knowledge” suggests an end point. Once you “know” someone or something you have nothing more to learn. You have no need to ask questions or to be curious. You fall into the trap of judging and putting people with endless possibilities in a finite box. Girls who are curious to understand are more confident in who they are and make stronger connections with their peers.

“People and ideas are to be understood, not known” – The Earhart Club

Our values develop from our understanding of the world around us and become the foundation of our character and the bedrock of our decision making.

Humility, compassion and empathy sound “weak” but are the foundation of human connection and our inherent need to be a part of something greater than ourselves and in service of the common good. Immediate gratification, power and control sound “strong” but always lead to isolation, disconnect and deep dissatisfaction.

“It is our values that hold us steady and true” – The Earhart Club
