I came across this amazingly powerful and inspirational video that I feel compelled to share with my fellow ATS members. I’m a great believer in that anything is possible when you put your mind to it and accept and seek out help and advice from your fellow brothers and sisters.

There’s not a lot more I can add other than what’s been said in the text below. I hope it brings smiles and inspires.

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!

That was awesome!!!

I shed a few inspirational tears aswell.

Really goes to show you that all it takes is one person to show you that you REALLY do have the power to change your life. Thats why when I'm out and about I talk to anyone that looks like they could use a friend. I've spent entire nights on the streets of New Orleans talking to homeless men and women, because you never know whos life can be turned around with just alittle belief in them!

Great vid OP
