It Has Nothing To Do With Age provides self-help principles. The inspirational stories give concrete illustrations of overcoming many of life's challenges. Difficulties pertaining to depression, grief, divorce, and death are presented and worked through by the participants. Physical impairments, injuries, overcoming issues with weight, alcohol, and nicotine are also dealt with and resolved by the athletes.

This book provides a model on how to overcome some of the difficulties that confront all of us . Further, this read sheds a beacon of light on preventive measures for good physical and mental health. Research demonstrates that exercise is an important component in treating such ailments and debilitating illness such as depression, stroke, heart disease, brain or cognitive malfunction,and Alzheimer's disease.

I suggest that proper exercise can be used as a preventive measure for psychological, cognitive, and physical health as well. Follow my prescription and lead a better, more fulfilling, and healthier life.

Frank Lieberman - Part 6

Check out this link On the 15Th of this month,   I have been invited by Dr. Don Freeman to talk about my book and trail running experience on his Podcast show. I am looking forward in meeting him. I intend to write about my experience after the show.
Part 6 from chapter 1 in “It Has Nothing To Do With Age.”
This story is about many incredible people.  Each one of them has their demons but learned how to deal with them, resolve them, grow from them, evolve, and develop meaning in their lives.  The characters who participate in these sports are in many ways the “Lance Armstrong’s” of amateur sports.
In writing this book, I addressed the question “why?  Why do older men and women continue to compete at extraordinary physical levels? Why do they put up with self-inflicted pain, discomfort, and even injury? Why do these people push themselves to points of exhaustion?  Why do they choose these extreme physical sports? Why do they consider themselves youthful?  Why is being future-oriented necessary?  Why is goal setting important?  Why do these individuals find it difficult to quit these activities?  Motivational factors such as competitiveness, achievement, affiliation, the fear of failure, and aggression are considered.  How much success is related to one’s DNA? How much of a factor is one’s local environment to success?  What is the correlation between family, parents, friends and achievement?  Is it simply ego?  Do you have to be retired in order to find success?
To Be Continued.
