We Are Amazing

“Some people are old at 18 and some people are young at 90. Time is a concept that humans created” Yoko Ono

Human beings are incredible, there are no two ways about it; we have mental, emotional and physical capabilities that have the power to astound. Some people show such dogged determination to succeed that we are often overawed by what they achieve. You might think that you have passed the stage in your life when you can realistically hope to achieve something wonderful but you’d be wrong and here’s why:

mohr-keet

This is Mohr-Keet and he was 96 years old when this photo of him bungee jumping from South Africa’s Western Cape when it was taken. The jump which was from 708ft secured him a place in the Guinness Book of Records. Apparently this World War II veteran said that he did the jump for the thrill and to get rid of fear; he believes that you have to do things, to live life

Tao Porchon-lynch will be 99 years old this year and she is still teaching yoga. She says that feeling young and being healthy is everything. In her own words “I never thought anything about age. I believed sincerely and still do, that there’s nothing I cannot do. I believe that all the power in the universe is right inside me”

Tao-Porchon-Lynch

These people demonstrate that age really is just a number; it doesn’t matter if you are 50, 60, 70, 80 or older, if you keep your mind and body healthy with the right diet and exercise, you can achieve anything that you want to achieve – it’s just a case of wanting it badly enough.
