I see them. People who have climbed mountains, completed marathons, have lived healthy with MS for 20+ years. There are people who are who are instructing yoga who were once wheelchair bound, go out and look for the stories, look for something that you want to aim for, it's just like and anything you do right, if you start a business, you don't go to your partners, and say let's look for all the failed businesses, and follow them, right?

That doesn't make any sense, so why would you do that with your health? Say let me look for all the worst case scenario, and present them, to my family member. Look for the inspiration. Inspiration goes a long way in life. We use it to for almost everything else, we use it regularly for running a businesses.
Why not run your health, the way you would run a business? Say alright, let's get our team together, let's get a plan of action, and if something goes wrong, we deal with it, but we always keep our goal, we always keep our vision on what we want not on what we don't want.
