I'm glad to see that there are still many of you that are continuing to watch this inspirational video. Now, we all know that there is no reason on earth that can justify any of us quitting or giving up. Especially after having seen this video. If Arthur can do it, any one of us can and will do it.

Just an FYI, I have another challenge going this week where I have to do yoga. I'm not looking forward to it but I'll give it a try .... just like Arthur. There will be a lot of falling and stumbling but with every additional time I do it, I know I'll be getting stronger and stronger and will, one day, be able to be just like Arthur.

That's something I'm willing to work at to accomplish. :)

BIGHAIRTEXAN - well, at least I'll be in good company every time I fall. Saw another yoga video today that I think I could start out with so I'll work on getting started on it.

ABRANDNEWME2012: I'm glad you liked it enough to share it with a number of other people here. That's what it's all about.

I promise not to laugh (in front of you) if you fall during Yoga!
Probably because I'll be too busy falling myself to laugh at you! emoticon

Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing all the while expecting different results.

Timing has a lot to do with the success of a rain dance.

I have a hard time getting into yoga. The steps are difficult for me to get into. I guess I need to just let myself fall until I get good at it, just like our guy in the video. :)

TARA I have no idea how old you are but the older we get the worse our balance becomes if we don't work on it. Then older people start falling and broken wrists and hips become problems. Yoga is great for balance and fall prevention.

This man is a true example of the power of human nature. He has and will inspire millions with his story of courage, strength and pure determination. I know I will take on my new nightly yoga routine with a completely different attitude when I find my balance sucks and the poses twist me in ways by body currently does not want to twist.

BIGHAIRTEXAN, you are making me blush! That's quite an honor coming from you (smiling). I know it takes a lot to impress you. I'm glad you were moved by this. I agree, it is well worth seeing and viewing.

IAMAGEM, do keep trying. It's well worth the effort. And there are very few you tubes or motivational articles or videos that I'd say that about.
SUPERACHIEVER came up w/ a real winner.

IAMAGEMLOVER: Sometimes the browsers can act up. Things will work in one and not in the other. I've had this happen numerous times with my work stuff. Very frustration. Here's what I suggest since you're having problems with Firefox and IE (Yuk, I hate that!).

Go to a blank browser window and access "http://www.google.com". Then when that window comes up, put in the link,

www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player

mbedded&v=qX9FSZJu448


I just tried that and it worked for me.

You might have to clean your cache or your temporary files. Something could be gunking up your browser enough to cause problems.

Let me know if this helps. :)

OMG, thanks for my Sunday morning cry session! That was unbelievably incredible! And I was sitting here feeling sorry for myself. I have no reason to feel so negatively when this man would constantly fall but consistently pick himself back up again. When I saw him RUN....I have no words but thanks for sharing this. So motivational!

We all have the same 24 HOURS. Make yours count!

Wow! I even got to BigHairTexan. Well, I'm glad you were honest about it and I'm really glad that it had a positive effect on you.

Glad the rest of you also enjoyed it. I hope it will remain a motivator and encouragement for all of you. ;)

OK just to be "nice" I started watching this. For the first half of it I was rolling my eyes and sighing (I'm very hard hearted). By the end I had tears down my face. It's WONDERFUL! Thanks so much for sharing!

I am so glad you both agree with me (GarellK and IrishAngie). I couldn't pass up sharing it with you as it really affected me and thought it could only do the same to those that take the time to watch it.

Hi everybody! I just saw this extraordinary story about this guy that someone from one of my other teams gladly shared with us. Waited to get her permission to share it and now am getting it out to you as quickly as I can.

YOU HAVE GOT TO TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THIS .... you will NOT regret it. It is an absolutely phenomenal success story about a man that was destined to die, or so everyone was telling him, but he defied all of them and proved to them that anything is possible if you do what is needed.

AWESOME motivation for all of us. Please, if for no other reason than to satisfy my plea to you, please find the time, take the time to see this video from start to finish. There is a longer version of the story that directly follows the one you'll view. I strongly suggest you take the time to sit through them both. YOU WILL BE CHANGED by viewing it. If you're not, you can't possibly be alive (kidding)! :)
