Ben Saunders skies to the North Pole

This Ted Talk is about one man tries to ski to the North Pole and succeeds.

He talks about failing the first time because of the food and weather. He is then in debt and has no money. He tries again but this time, alone. He has many obstacles like the weather pushing him back and the ice drifting him away from his destination but his worst obstacle is he reaches a spot where it lacks of ice but he is able to ski past that. It takes him 72 days to reach the north pole.

At the end of the video, it shows a note from a teacher saying "Ben lacks any potential" He proves that everyone has potential and if you set your mind on it, you can accomplish anything.
