To identify at least five people who have served as expanders in people's minds for their Reticular Activating System that have shown that once something can be done, others immediately begin doing the same thing for purposes of writing a book.
Preliminary research shows that there is available data on people who have served as expanders by showing people what is possible and breaking barriers. In our early searches, we identified two such people, who are detailed as follows.
Charles Lindbergh became the first pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean without making a stop, which was once thought to be impossible.
Lindbergh's transatlantic flight "made him an international sensation, popularized the concept of air travel and showed the world the potential of aviation."
Prior to his flight, he was told that a "solo trip across the Atlantic on a single-engine plane would be hazardous, if not suicidal."
In addition, major airline companies dismissed Lindbergh's flight because there was no possibility of an "unknown airmail pilot from St. Louis achieving what no one had before."
