Ok, in case you didn’t know, a 64 year old woman swam 110 from Cuba to Key West, Florida after 4 unsuccessful attempts. Here’s the video capturing Diana Nyad’s dramatic finish of her journey courtesy of USAToday.

And as she crossed the finish line, with her lips swollen from salt water after swimming for 53 hours, she had these 3 messages.

NeverGiveUP

If anyone has the right to tell some one to never, ever give up, it’s this woman right here. First off, she attempted this feat in 1978. That’s 35 years ago. Then she tried 3 more times before this last attempt. I’m sure with every effort, she learned what not to do.

Boss woman message right here. Yes indeed. You are never too old to chase your dream. If you have something that is gnawing at you, seek out what it is and write it down. Even if you don’t have the capacity to do it now, if the dream is meant for you to achieve, it will still be there. Ask Diana some 35 years later.

  Team

Her 35 member crew is simply amazing. I mean from all of the preparation to making sure that her attempt was successful. From the other attempts, they were prepared and watchful of pitfalls along the way. Just read this account of how they even made sure the jellyfish would not stop her  again.Team Spots and Collects Jellyfish to protect Diana  Who do you have on your crew who wants you to succeed and will “block the jellyfish” towards your endeavors? Success is truly not a solitary sport.

 

So Old School Kids, what can we learn from this? Are you sitting on a dream and think it’s too late? What setbacks can you learn from to get to your goal? Leave a comment.
