Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

  • Published on Dec 23, 2016
  • We asked three centenarians what their most valuable life lessons were, and also their regrets.
    The conversations that followed were remarkable. They talked about the importance of family, people, relationships and love. Their view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience is truly an inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the video!

    "I don't have many failures. If I'm baking a cake and it fails, it becomes pudding..."
    ~Cliff Crozier

    A simple advice on how to take life, if this doesn't 'go well' per say it just means it was meant to go another way. It's all a matter of perspective.

    It seems as if when your old the most important thing you have left is all your memories after every one you know has passed away or you’re not able to do what you used to while you’re young memories are taken for granted some even say don’t look back but there always comes that day when you just have to take a look it’s all you have left... memories

    It’s sad that things has changed so much.
    Like microwaves were made and fast food restaurants,so now ppl eat a lot of unhealthy food.
    Electronics were made and social media.
    Ppl in this generation are selfish and don’t treat ppl with respect.
    The president and the government are messing up a lot of things and already have.
    When things are broken it’s thrown away instead of fixed,like relationships.
    No one wants long term.
    School has changed a lot too and not in a good way.
    Money seems like the most important thing in the world to almost everyone.
    +many more things
    I doubt many ppl will get to be 100 bc the world has changed so much . These days most ppl live until 80+ .

    never thought about this, but at 100 if you had children while or before you were 30 and you live to 100, theres a very well chance they will die before you naturally. Seems awful.

    I'm 18, and I feel I have wasted so much teen years inside, playing video games 24/7.
    I am starting to turn my life around nowadays though, I go to college, and I go to the gym. Now, I only play videogames if I'm bored.
    I just hope when I'm old, I'll be satisfied with life.

    It is now time to respond to the fast “unhealthy” food industry and it's franchises. This can be led by the MDs and other professions who so eloquently explain the reason it is needed.

    I envision such a response would use the McDonald's playbook starting with its golden arches. Instead of arches a giant silver V would be underlined with the franchise name: Whofoplaba (short for Whole Food Plant Based). It would serve both take-out and dine-in.

    A super salad bar offering no less than 25 vegies would be the centerpiece (local and organic where possible). Of course it would include a range of nuts and seeds. In addition, a fruit salad bar would be a feature. Again, at least 25 choices could be made available. The menu would range from raw broccoli and cauliflower with a wide choice of hummus dip to cooked rice and beans, steamed vegetables, varieties of starches including baked potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes. To round out the menu selections choices can be made from the many vegan recipes created and already published. Finally customers could request customized personal plates based on their personal preference.

    A highlight of a WHOFOPLABA franchise would include a library where customers would have the opportunity to purchase many of the Whofoplaba books available.

    McDonalds is successful because it bought the land upon which it built the structure. Thus it had absolute control of what was offered and how it was managed, else the franchisee would have to go. I am addressing this suggestion to the many Whofoplaba doctors and other professionals, some of whom are listed below. T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, John A. McDougall, MD, Joel Fuhrman MD, Neal Barnard, MD, Brooke Goldner, MD, Michael Greger, MD, Michael Klaper, MD, Joel Kahn, M, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, Garth Davis, MD, Alan Goldhamer, DC,Doug D, Lisle, PhD, Robert Ostfeld, MD, MS, Ellsworth Wareham, MD, Matthew Lederman, MD, Alona Pulde, MD, Dean Ornish MD, Ron Weiss MD, Robert Lustig MD, Kim Williams MD, Joanne Kjong MD, Anthony Lim MD, Brenda Dsavuas RS, Micelle McMacken MD, Tati Kvis MD, Benjamin Benulis MD, and so many more.

    I am also asking the vegan community to offer your support as future customers. On March 1, 2019 I started my third year as a vegan. Two years ago I was obese, had diabetes and high blood pressure and consuming lots of drugs. After watching youtube videos of most of those listed above, I am no longer obese and do not have high blood pressure or diabetes. And I take no drugs. I am 78 years of age and now b elieve I will make it to 100.
