When the odds are stacked against us, it rarely feels like an opportunity. And yet, it’s in the face of life’s biggest challenges when we have the opportunity to develop adaptability and resilience. That’s exactly what Kimberley Chambers discovered after she suffered an injury that would forever change the course of her life. Despite the setback of her injury, she became the first woman to ever successfully swim the 32 mile distance from the Farallon Islands to San Francisco. Kimberley swam through shark-infested waters and was stung by jellyfish 200 times, and still refused to give up. We hope you’ll join us for this week’s episode to hear how Kimberly’s inspiring story teaches us that:
- With determined resilience and a strong support system, the human spirit is stronger than we realize.
- When we are willing to face our fear, we have the opportunity to discover just how capable we really are.
- Building a reservoir of strength in the seemingly small moments can prepare us for accomplishing more than we ever believed was possible.
- There’s no price you can put on the internal satisfaction that comes from knowing that you are doing what you were made to be doing.
