There are many inspirational stories that motivate people on a daily basis. Some encourage people to focus in early ages so they can win later, some warn people to live their wildest best life when they're young so they can focus when they're older. People encourage others to always have a plan and chase after your dreams, others promote going with the flow and people will eventually find their calling in life.
The common goal within most motivational stories is to get to a place where one is successful, however they deem success to be. One of the most used motivational quotes is "do not to let anyone dictate what you can and can't do", and this 72 year-old man is doing just that.
