Find any sequence that meets these criteria.

I'm struggling with this problem and don't know where to start looking: Is there any sequence $a_n$ such that $\lim\limits_{n \to \infty}a_n \neq 0$ and $\lim\limits_{n \to \infty}(n \sqrt[n]{|a_n|}) ...

speed of convergence to infinity

Lets take for example $\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty} \log(x)$, from a mathematical point of view this is $+\infty$, but from a logical point of view it's clear that $x$ converges to $+\infty$ much more ...
