Around 2010, my father started recording his life story on cassettes.
It took him five years.
But he did it.
Earlier this year he sent me a box of ninety-minute cassettes, a cassette player, and an envelope with photos in it.
I then had the tapes transcribed, edited, and formatted into a book.
On June 4th, my father’s 90th birthday, I presented his published autobiography to him.
He was speechless.
He held it like a newborn baby.
He was flushed, teary eyed, and truly moved.
And so was I.
My father found time to record his life story because it was important to him.
And he did it while being the primary caretaker of my bedridden mother, now 84.
And he did it while maintaining his own exercise routine of working out two hours a day.
And he did it while cooking, cleaning, running errands, dealing with harsh winters and hot summers, and his own medical challenges.
But he did it.
If a ninety year old man can complete one of his dreams, then you can, too.
You simply begin and then stick with it.
Before too long, your dream comes true.
Just like my Dad’s.

PS – My father’s book, The Most Contented Man, will be available on Amazon soon. And he’s planning to record a second book: What I Would Do If I Was President of the United States. 🙂
I’m a friend and a fan of Body-for-Life Hall of Fame fitness legend Bill Phillips, author of Transformation and other bestselling books, but I’m not an affiliate for anything he offers or sells. I’m writing this to share my personal experience with his new supplement, GHX10, which is supposed to help increase your Human Growth Hormone.
Like you, I see ads for supplements daily.
I used to take a bucket of them (supplements, not ads) every morning.
For years, I spent thousands of dollars on a prescription to help increase Human Growth Hormone.
I was over 50 and approaching 60 (and am now over 60) and was seeking the Fountain of Youth.
Feeling frustrated by the lack of results, and disappointed by the misleading claims, and tired of paying all that money every month, I threw it all away.
Stopped the supplements.
Stopped the drug.
I decided I would simply eat clean, workout, pray, and hope for the best.
Of course, I rediscovered Bill Phillips two years ago, attended four of his fitness camps in Denver, and have been working his program daily.
I’ve released weight, added muscle, and feel great. (I’ve written about my experiences on previous posts. See PS below.)
Recently Bill announced a new supplement.
It’s called GH10X.
It was created to help you increase Human Growth Hormone, a major key to rebuilding your body, releasing excess weight, and feeling youthful.
Bill says it can help increase Growth Hormone up to ten times.
That’s a pretty noteworthy claim.
He adds, “GH10x is an all-new, scientifically designed, nutraceutical – a natural supplement with medicinal like effects.”
Because I trust Bill, I ordered enough GH10X to try for a month.
Since it’s simply a powder you add to a drink, it was easy to try.
The first night, I slept better than I had in years.
And my dreams became more vivid, colorful, and memorable.
The next morning my workout was stronger and more intense, with more endurance and less exhaustion.
I was impressed.
But I thought it might be a fluke, so I kept the experience to myself.
Three weeks later, I noticed that my muscles seemed bigger.
A month or so later, my wife said, “Look at your arms!”
And then when a service person came to the house to do a repair, and I saw him glance at my biceps (I had been in my gym and was wearing a sleeveless shirt), I knew something was working.
I went in the bathroom and took a selfie.
My muscles are bigger.
Better sleep, more energy, increased strength, and bulging biceps.
And yes, I ordered a lot more GH10X.
Bill is quick to point out that his supplements won’t work for you if you don’t exercise.
I already workout, using Bill’s methods.
Adding the new supplement seemed to turn on the after burners, push some sort of kick start nuclear blast button in my body, and engage my body-mind-spirit to fire up the back engines and sprint ahead.
I like GH10X.
Again, I’m not an affiliate for it and I don’t make a cent if you buy it or not.
I’m just sharing my personal experience of using it.

For the record, the only other supplement I take these days is Strongevity, also from Bill Phillips. It’s described at http://eatingright.com/collections/strongevity-rx ( I’m not an affiliate for it, either.)
To your health!
