2012, this TED TALK of Diana Nyad was one of my first TED videos I watched. But I have to say I still love it ! It is a wonderful, honest, sincere and very powerful story about ACHIEVEMENT. Wow !
Diana Nyad: Extreme swimming with the world's most dangerous jellyfish.
In the 1970s, Diana Nyad set long-distance swim records that are still unbroken. Thirty years later, at 60, she attempted her longest swim yet, from Cuba to Florida. In this funny, powerful talk at TEDMED, she talks about how to prepare mentally to achieve an extreme dream, and asks: What will YOU do with your wild, precious life?
