Emily Jackson’s TEDx Talk: Not Compromising What's Most Important to You is Possible

When world-champion kayaker Emily Jackson was eight years old, the Jacksons had decided to sell everything and hit the road with their two children Emily and Dane in their RV to support Eric “EJ” Jackson, the father of the two siblings on his competition circuit. Little they knew that this decision would completely change their lives. Emily Jackson has not only become a 2-time World Champion Freestyle Kayaker but mother, wife and team manager for Jackson Kayak who shares her secrets to becoming a champion and developing an uncompromising voice in the world.

Emily says every day we are faced with the challenge of comparing ourselves and self-worth to others. In this process we are losing our true identity and creativity. We live in a society that determines how we feel and think about things to be based on other people’s observations and perspectives. How are we supposed to be trail blazers and living the life that only we have dreamed if we spend our time comparing it to those around us constantly. By creating our priority list we can go confidently in the direction we choose, all comparisons aside, and no compromising. Quite simply, she is "Uncompromising."
