Legendary entertainer Ben Vereen inspires at Vital Aging Conference


You know, the goodness that you’re seeking, the good life that you’re seeking is seeking you. ‘Be still and know,’ that’s what I tell my young people. ‘Be still and know.’ And know that that what you’re seeking is seeking you even more so. But we’ve got to give that seeker the tools which is needs
in order for it to fill our lives and it’s all it’s all a mental play; it’s all how you
think about your life; how you think about things. You know, you can ask is the glass half full or half empty. It’s how you approach your life, because there are
days where I’m down like everybody else but I the down don’t stay down always
and I find tools that I found for myself that works for me. I had diabetes but
because it was caught in early age I had a choice. Like I didn’t just say ‘oh my God
I got diabetes.’ I’d say yeah man, it’s a wake up sign. Great now what could I do to
live with diabetes. I have it – it doesn’t have me, so that way my life is even
keeled. I’m doing the right thing, I’m working good, in contact with my doctor and I’m
doing the right things for my body. I’m gonna have a very healthy wonderful life.
Enjoy your life. Go for that walk go take their cruise, do something that is exciting for yourself. I have a teacher, his name is Luigi.
I think he died when he was like 84 or 85. And Luigi’s model was never stand still,
always keep moving. Never stop moving. Never stop moving.
My mother would say ‘if you stop moving I’ll throw a little dirt on you.’ We’ve given so much, and our giving is not over. We have so much to show and to guide. Listen, the
world, the youngsters are looking to us and how do we do it because they’re going to
be there at that gate soon. We got to show them the goodness of how this life
is now. It’s even “gooder-er.” It’s not only just better, but
it’s “gooder-er.” But it’s up to you to make that choice. It’s up to you.
