Who inspires you? 

Well, a lot of different people may inspire you, but let me be your inspiration. 

I don't say that with a ton of ego. 

I say that with a lot of humility and deep, deep gratitude.

Because back in early two thousands, I was physically broken. I was financially broken... and it just didn't seem life was worth living.

Now I've never been suicidal, and I don't think I ever will be, but things were pretty tough. Things were pretty tough. 

I didn't know what to do. 

Well... Peggy and I got on a little mission and we decided we were going to take care of my physical. 

If you've heard my story, you know, I went to San Diego sports medicine and they wanted to do seven different surgeries for various ailments I had and physical incapacities I had, and you know I was starting to just really, really, really not feel well at all. 

We found some people, some mentors, some people who had discovered different ways of doing things. 

We started embracing those.

We started doing resistance stretching. 

We started moving daily. 

We started hydrating. 

We've added so many things to our life... all the things that we talk about, we added to our lives and it totally turned my health around.

I didn't have to get any of those surgeries. 

Now I am 68. 

I am fit, vibrant, healthy... better than I was in my forties. 

I'm just so amazed. 

I find inspiration in my story every single day. 

When I sit down at 8:00 AM to teach my morning classes, I'm overwhelmed sometimes at where I'm at, compared to where I was.

Why don't you get on the same path? 

Why don't you convince yourself that you are so important, you're going to do what it takes to move and feel great for the rest of your life. 

Then you'll become my inspiration... as many of you already are. 

Then you'll become your inspiration. 

And that's when it all turns amazing.

May you move well, may you stay healthy, may you be happy.
