Feeling lazy and unmotivated?
After watching this video of Arthur Boorman, a disabled veteran of the Gulf War, I can guarantee you’ll be inspired to do whatever it is that you’re putting off doing.
Arthur was a paratrooper in the Gulf War and sustained his injuries from too many jumps, told byhis doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own again.
At 47 years old, he started to give up, and because he couldn’t run or exercise, he gained a lot of weight.
When he reached 297 pounds, he knew he needed to make a change.
He couldn’t do anything high-impact and decided he wanted to do yoga, contacting a bunch of instructors that all turned him away except for one.
Arthur stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page. Dallas is a yoga instructor (and former professional wrestler) who helps athletes like himself who have suffered years of injuries due to high-impact sports.
Dallas was so moved by his story that he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey, encouraging Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible.
While he had many, many falls, he pulled himself back up and pretty soon even his weight started going down more than 100 pounds, and counting.
“Just because I can’t do it today, doesn’t mean I won’t be able to do it some day,” Arthur says in the video below.
But most importantly, they were wrong, and the end of his video journey will give you goose bumps.
