This picture of me with Usher in 2002 is one of the most embarrassing images I have ever taken. Despite that, I’m sharing it with you for the first time. Why? Because I believe it will make a difference for you, for anyone, who is ready to change their life.
I met Usher at Chateau Elan, a spa in North Georgia. There was a buzz in the hotel that a big-time celebrity was coming to stay there, and the staff was extremely excited. My wife, Lisa, and I were having lunch when he arrived, and we were disappointed that our server would not tell us who it was.
A few hours later I went downstairs for a massage and was waiting peacefully in the holding area when Usher came in and sat down next to me. He was very approachable and struck up a conversation. When he found out I was a chiropractor he became very excited. To this day it is the only consultation I have ever given while wearing just a bathrobe.
A few days later he came into my office as a patient for his first chiropractic experience. At the time I had no idea who Usher was, but my kids sure did! Usher’s career was booming, and our children got really excited that their dad was Usher’s chiropractor.
Over the next four years, I took care of Usher adjusting him in my office, in his home, and in his studio. Our family was invited to his concerts and we even attended the opening of his wine restaurant in downtown Atlanta where I got to meet his mother and some of his closest friends and business relationships.
Usher was an international superstar who appreciated the care I was providing for him so much so that he endorsed The 100 Year Lifestyle when it came out stating:
“For the past 5 years, Dr. Plasker has been a key member of my health care team. Now, with The 100 Year Lifestyle, he can become a key member of yours…make these Life-Changing Principles a part of your life.”
And while I could have and probably should have used this photo to help promote the book, our practice, and our 100 Year Lifestyle Network of chiropractors, I didn’t. Why? Because I was embarrassed by the way I looked! I was 50 pounds heavier than I am today.
When I looked at this image and a few others like it and decided to change my life! I did not want to lose weight. It wasn’t my desire to go on the same roller coaster that tens of millions of people do, losing and gaining weight.
I decided to start living the principles of The 100 Year Lifestyle that I knew deep down in my soul would change my life, and they will change yours too! So, I did not lose weight. I eliminated it! That was 14 years ago!
I have been speaking about and teaching these principles all over the world since 2007 and they have changed countless lives! These principles will change your life as well.
