There are plenty of transformational stories you can read about online, but this one trumps them all.

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.

Spending every day on crutches and wheelchairs skyrocketed his weight to 300 pounds (136 kg) and physical trainers were actually turning him away because they didn’t know how to help him.

And then, something you’d never suspect changed his life forever.


If you’re not watching the video yet, click play now to watch his story because it proves two things:

1. We Put Severe Limits On What We Can Do

Arthur was told again and again that he was a lost cause.

Yet, it was enough for just one person to believe in him and open a door for him to completely turn his life around.

The power of belief to create change is extraordinary.

Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck — you can take control of your life and change it faster than you think.

2. Yoga Is Powerful

Most people have dismissed yoga as something for hippies, monks, or flexible Californians.

Yet people who feel stuck in life and just try yoga, end up discovering a side of themselves they never knew existed.

Just like Arthur couldn’t imagine himself walking again, it’s hard to see the benefits of yoga until you actually try it.

Arthur isn’t your typical Yoga practitioner. His story speaks to the fact that with the right guidance, expertise, and training, just about anyone can get into Yoga.
