We all have dreams. We all suffer heartache. We all need to somehow find the courage, the endurance, to FIND A WAY to our respective, individual Other Shores.

Never, Ever Give Up

Diana Nyad failed 4 times in her quest to be the first person to swim without a shark cage from Cuba to Florida. Here she shares the darkness, the boldness, and the triumph of approaching life with gusto and determination in her 2013 TED Women appearance. She shares one of the important gifts of this endeavor with this quote:

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Henry David Thoreau

It’s clear from this talk that Diana Nyad has been transformed by her struggle and it’s even more clear that who she has become is her true prize. If you’ve ever felt like you were facing impossible, or even just daunting, odds in your life, you will be able to draw inspiration and wisdom from this dauntless woman.

Find A Way

Do you ever wonder how to become your best self? Diana Nyad never gave up trying to find her way. It’s well worth watching her first talk on TED from October of 2011, in which she talks about her, then most recent, attempts to swim from Cuba to Florida which ended in failure. Don’t miss out on hearing this most powerful perspective from an amazing woman. It adds depth and dimension to the story of her ultimate success.
