I Started to Believe

Here is an inspiring story of a disabled veteran injured in the Gulf War that was told he would never walk unassisted again. They were wrong.

When exercise seemed impossible, Arthur found a way… but most _____ instructors turned him away.

All but one.

Then the ball was in Arthur’s court and he started to believe it could happen… and it did!

Click the play button and watch Arthur’s story. I would also encourage you to watch the extended version offered in the annotation at the top near the end of the video if you have a few more minutes. I think it will add to your feelings of inspiration.

Arthur’s incredible transformation reminded me of one of my favorite quotes by Calvin Coolidge:

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Did you even know that yoga could produce results like that? I didn’t. Perhaps I should look into it. 🙂

If you found Arthur’s story inspirational please help me spread this video to others that may need a bit of inspiration too!

Thank you!
