Never Give Up!

We can all come up with excuses as to why we can't work out or eat right. But when it comes right down to it, not one of those excuses are valid. Quite frankly, we do ourselves and our bodies a disservice when we don't take care of them. The only thing standing in your way is YOU. NOTHING is impossible. Just ask Arthur Boorman.

Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.

He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try -- he couldn't do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.

Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey - he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.

Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP's specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility -- which gave him hope that maybe someday, he'd be able to walk again.

His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck - you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think. Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams - whatever they may be.
Anything is Possible!

When you find yourself feeling frustrated or saying, "I can't," stop and think about these two things that Arthur said:
Never underestimate what you can accomplish.
Just cuz I can't do it today doesn't mean I'm not gonna be able to do it someday.
When you believe in yourself and don't give up, anything is possible!!
