Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation!

If this story can inspire someone you know, please share it with them!

Arthur's story is highlighted from the beginning, in the upcoming documentary, INSPIRED: The Movie. (Thanks to filmmaker Steve Yu for putting this inspirational video together!) 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.

I didn't think I'd ever like DDP

He was a mean SOB wrestler that naturally played a heal.

When creating his yoga brand, he was quite demeaning to women.

But, dammit, helping this guy makes up for a helluva lot.

It's amazing how many things

It's amazing how many things are impossible until you do them.

That's awesome. Really

That's awesome. Really awesome.

Love seeing stuff like this.

Love seeing stuff like this. Thanks for sharing and congrats to the young man in the video! It's not hard to do anything with a little willpower and determination.

Keeps flashing the Masonic triangle

but masonism is about salvation through works so that makes enough sense.

Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

I do not think he is aware of

I do not think he is aware of the Masonic symbolism of it... he's doing it in reference to Diamond Dallas Page. Although Diamond Dallas Page could be a Mason; I have no idea.

End The Fed!

...If you had The faith the size of a mustard seed...

This man was sick and tired of being sick and tired...and he acted on the belief that he could change his situation for the better and he did.

Thanks so much for sharing MMJ Ministry..


I did not cry. Because it was

I did not cry.

Because it was a good ending/story.

I should lose weight like him and chronicle my success.

Having to do video's would put pressure on me to lose the weight.

Nah. Off to hostess.

Daily Paul!!

I didn't expect you to make me cry today! Thank you! :)

We're in!

We'll definitely look into this DDP Yoga method. . . after the holiday whirlwind crazy schedule :-)
Many thanks for posting, MMJ! (You just might have changed the "shape" of our liberty movement ;-)

Oh wow...

Last thing I expected to see posted on the Daily Paul is a DDP Yoga story. I've been a subscriber to DDP's Youtube channel and was just looking at his recent posts. When I came here I found myself confused for a moment, as I thought I somehow counter-navigated back to my Youtube account. Ah, that Daily Paul always finding new ways to trip my mind.

And as soon as I can afford it I am going to get the first pack of his Yoga. As a wrestling fan I have followed DDP and for an almost 56 year old, beat up wrestler he's been able to get/keep himself in great shape. DDP is taking in Jake the Snake Roberts (for those of you familiar with the legend and his personal demons) trying to get him clean and in shape, for one last shot at having another run in pro-wrestling. I'm hoping for the best.

Anyway it was really trippy coming here and seeing this story (again). Quite inspirational and it does prove that although the human animal can be fragile, resiliency is one of it's greater asset.

Made me tear up.

I love stories like this. Unleashing the human potential.

And yes, I will agree 1000% with this site's founder, that change starts with the INDIVIDUAL.

Bravo. Thanks for sharing!

For liberty.

Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

i like

feel good videos like this, and DDP was a bonus


Only doctors could of down voted that video lol



Careful with the stereotypes! Most Docs I know are very well-intentioned folks and very liberty minded.


OK, crooked Doctors would of voted that down :)

If anything is ever going to change, it will start with

the Individual.

Thank you MMJ, for being an inspiration.

He's the man.


Thanks for posting. :)
