Fear can be a powerful motivator and I embrace such challenges by inspiring others to discover their true potential.  This photo was taken of my daughter, Ocean aged 12 in the Indian Ocean swimming with the worlds largest fish, the Whale Shark.  I took my 2 girls on a 30,000 mile adventure over 30 days to the other side of the world to locate and swim with these magnificent Ocean Giants in open water.  The principle was to not only to fulfil a lifetime ambition but to educate my children to harness the power of fear and failure.  Having arrived on location these giants had moved north so I had to re-evaluate our mission, giving up was never an option.  After another day of travelling, a spotter plane and a vessel equipped to make chase, we found them in 400m of water with a lone tiger shark in close proximity.  I am fearless when it comes to embarking on such adventures and embrace every such opportunity with every ounce of enthusiasm and energy!
