Veteran shows why you should Never Give Up

Veteran, Arthur Boorman, shows why you should Never Give Up. Never Give Up!

A friend of mine posted this video on her Facebook page the other day. It has stayed with me ever since.

Today, I started searching for the source of the video and found it on the Prevention Magazine's web page with a story about this disabled veteran. This amazing man spent 15 years looking for relief from his chronic knee and back pain. Arthur Boorman Never Give Up

He was searching on line for pain management when he came across Yoga as a way to help with his pain. He went to yoga studios for help and they turned him away.

It wasn't until Diamond Dallas Page saw his picture and heard his story that Arthur's life changed.

Without a trainer he changed his life through yoga. He literally watched videos by Dallas Page and did it himself!

 Watch his incredible transformation.

Perseverence does pay. Never giving up is one way to avoid failure.

Randy - Please do!

Andrew - I just saw a post with the address to Walter Reed asking people to send the wounded Vets Christmas Cards. I wanted to check it out before I posted it.

Connie...I saw the post too about sending cards to Walter Reed.  What an inspiration this man's story is. 

(Looks like you're finishing up the 30 day blogging challenge strong!  I fell off the wagon early on...life just got in the way!)

Connie- I watched every second of this and I had a huge smile on my face at then end.  If this doesn't inspire anyone then I don't know what will.

Kathy - I totally agree. That's why I had to go find it and write a post about it! Thanks for the feature!

Hi Connie, what an inspiration and great example of how sheer determination and persistence will lead to your goals eventually. No one said it would be easy but if he can do it then we should be as well!

That's amazing!  It also goes to remind everyone that they should be more active in finding solutions to their problems than just relying on what a doctor says.

Silvia - I couldn't agree more! A remarkable story to say the least.

Chris Ann - Really! How easy would it have been for him to continue veging on the sofa!
