Just Do it Like Diana

What have you accomplished? I mean really accomplished? During these immediate gratification instant narcissistic times, setting and reaching goals is a novelty. We barely have the endurance to avoid our iPhones for more than five minutes, let alone swim over 100 miles in shark and jellyfish-infested waters for 54 hours, at 64, no less, after four previous failed attempts. Diana Nyad has been such an inspiration in her conviction, humility and grace throughout the entire journey and to see her step onto the beach that she’d only dreamed of reaching, was an accomplishment that few of us will ever experience.

In one of her interviews today, she talked about the strength of a human mind and the endurance of human will; that we can all achieve amazing things. And she’s right. We’ve all got the gifts. How to flex that accomplishment muscle slowly…. what are those far-off hard-to-imagtine accomplishments just waiting to spiritually, physically and mentally materialize? Thanks Diana for prompting me to wonder….
