Doing the Impossible: Swimming to Antarctica

Doing the impossible begins with a vision and a belief—a vision that something that is thought to be impossible is possible and a strong belief in yourself—that you can achieve an impossible task. Lynne describes how many of her achievements were thought to be impossible. “There is no way a 15-year-old girl can swim across the English Channel and break the world record; There’s no way someone can swim in the icy waters of the Bering Strait from the U.S. to the Soviet Union and open the border; there’s no way a person can swim in 32-degree water off Antarctica.” Lynne discusses how to find ways to do the impossible and thereby change how people think and change the world.
