“WHEN IT’S TIME TO SHINE, BE THE BRIGHTEST” – LIFE WISDOM FROM CHINA’S 80 YR OLD CATWALK MODEL
We’re handing over Men’s Grooming Week to Deshun Wang, who wowed the crowd at Beijing Fashion Week at the age of – yes – 79, last year. But as he says in this must-see video, he’s been getting ready for this for a good 60 years.
At 24, he trained to be an actor.
At 44 he learned English.
At 49 he had his own pantomime troupe.
But along the way…he became what he called a “Beijing drifter” with nothing left to his name. (But he turned things around).
At 50, he hit the gym.
At 70 he really started working out big time.
At 79 he hit the catwalk.
This year, at 80, and as strong as ever on the runway, he has some great words of wisdom for the rest of us:
“When it’s time to shine, be the brightest”
And more wisdom..
“When you think it’s too late, be careful you don’t let that become your excuse for giving up”
As 97 yr old yoga teacher Tao Porchon-Lych always says, we love her too:
“There is nothing you cannot do“.
