Specific lifestyle changes can also reverse aspects of aging—even on a cellular level.I’ve just recently released the first book of my Youthful Aging Secrets series.There is a new paradigm of aging that sees the later part of life as a chapter of vitality, creativity, happiness, and fulfillment. I call this new paradigm youthful aging.This novel blueprint for aging youthfully is based on our positive plasticity, the innate capacity of human beings to adapt, change, and grow at any age.Here's what happened…The idea to write this book came to me on my birthday. I was training in a karate class for Black Belts. At the end of the class, I turned to my neighbor.“Al,” I said, “the next Black Belt class is going to be challenging.”“Why?” he said.“It’s my birthday next week and, as you know, the tradition is thatyou have to do your age in pushups.”“How old are you going to be?” Al said.“70.”Al’s jaw dropped. “What? You must be joking; you can’t be 70 years old!”“I am. My birthday’s next week and I’ll have to do 70 pushups,” I said.He thought for a moment. Then he said, “Well, I suppose you could do them on your knees.”“On my knees?” I shot back. “Certainly not! I wouldn’t be seen dead doing pushups on my knees!”Over the following days, I practiced pushups every morning. I was determined to do perfect, military-style pushups all the way through.And then the moment came...After the grueling two-hour Black Belt class, my teacher, Hanshi Andy Barber, called me to the front of the class. He pointed to the floor and said, “Let’s see your birthday pushups!”Everyone in the class started counting out loud. As I passed 50, and then 60, the count got louder and louder. Finally, I ground out the last few pushups and completed my 70th one. The whole dojo erupted with cheers and clapping.Later, fellow students came to congratulate me. Some of the super-fit guys in their 20s said, “I couldn’t complete 70 pushups. And I definitely can’t imagine doing pushups like that when I’m your age.”“Why not?” I said. “All you have to do is keep going—and then rev up!”The Problem With Negative ExpectationsIt was a shock to find that these young men had already narrowed their expectations of the later stages of life. After all, studies have shown that our body fulfills our negative—as well as our positive—expectations.If someone expects to be weak and decrepit at 70, this is what is going to happen. But equally, if someone expects to be doing karate—and 70 pushups—at 70, this is most likely where they’re heading!Youthful Aging SecretsNow, my book, Youthful Aging Secrets, is finally published!This book will change the trajectory of your life.
