Can we take a break from the hoopla for a bit, and focus on some real life heroes. I believe that when I see something that is important, something that can truly help someone else I am obligated to share it as I would the next story of what Kim K did or who Ariana Grande is dating.
With that said, I follow a ton of blogs and people on social media, most of them are in my line of work, others of them are in other areas that interest me.
The point is, I try to keep my social media endeavors well rounded just in case someone shared a gem, and this my friends, is a gem. This Inspirational video is about Arthur Boorman, a disabled veteran of the Gulf war who was told by his doctors he would never walk again but defied the odds and achieved something everyone said he couldn’t.
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. Neither 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!
