Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
I happily stumbled upon this page and mighty glad I did. I am an 86 year old from India, struggling with Arthtirtis in both my knees as well as acute RA in my right shoulder. I just can't raise my right had too high so need help in even changing my clothes or combing my hair.
My knees have been giving me problems and drastically reduced my mobility.
Finally an attack of Dengue fever a fortnight ago had left me bed ridden, but now I am wheelchair bound. My GP tells me it will take me anywhere between 4 to 6 months to be able to walk the little that I used to. I had managed to lose almost 2 kilos before I fell ill and am scared that I might gain weight if i remain so inactive.... need your advise.
Also where can I order these DVDs in India?
God Bless you for the good work you are doing

It’s time to face our “present” and truly live it to the best of my abilities! We need to stop letting past experiences and future fears stop us from living the life we want and dream about. That’s my plan - starting now! Join me!

Yes, the circumstances of my life have been difficult. Yes, I have had to deal with some unpleasant situations. Yes, I have had to face some difficult challenges. YES, I do want to blame others for where I’m at today BUT I’m finally realizing that the only person I can blame for my mistakes this past year is myself. Now, I need to move forward toward success. Thank you for being my friend during this journey.
This quote says it all and is now my “words to live by.”

I always tend to make excuses instead of taking action. It often seems like the time is not right to make positive changes in my current life. I came across this quote today and it really made me stop and think about my life and what I need to be doing.
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
