Healthways seeks stories of masters overcoming own hurdles

Our Seattle friend Jessica Seyfert has put out a call for stories of people “who have achieved greatness and overcome challenging hurdles, sometimes literally!” She writes: “Consider your peers who may need a little extra dose of inspiration to get off the couch and start moving, one step at a time. Consider the person who’s been a habitual exerciser, who needs some renewed motivation. That’s what makes stories so great. We learn from each other’s experiences. We’re impacted by the thriving human spirit to the point of even taking action ourselves. You can share your own story to inspire someone else.” The survey notes: “I understand and give permission to Healthways LLC to incorporate my responses provided in this survey appropriately, in whole or in part, in any media and/or products produced by Healthways LLC. I understand that Healthways LLC respects my privacy and will not share my contact information.”

Jessica also writes:

Think about particular places, people, moments, a time you felt proud, a time you felt challenged or a physical or emotional situation that you overcame since becoming more fit. Did you have an ‘a-ha’ moment? What was your original motivation and how are you sustaining it?

BTW, I’m not getting paid for this commercial endorsement. I just like Jessica and think her company’s heart is in the right place.

    Don’t know if I have achieved greatness, but my story is on under contact us. I love to share my story with everyone I can get to read it. She’s welcome to use any of it.
