“Planning for a fulfilling old age should be as normal as planning a career path or contributing to a retirement fund. Old age is the future that awaits everyone, and how you live now will have a tremendous effect on your final decades of life,” writes Ilchi Lee, a world renowned philosopher and educator, in this book, I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years: the Ancient Secret to Longevity, Vitality, and Life Transformation.
As the title suggests, Lee believes that anyone can live a long, productive, and healthy life, but they must consciously choose to do so. In this book, Ilchi Lee combines his years of experience modernizing and teaching ancient mind-body practices from his native Korea with new findings in longevity research. Through them, he provides inspiration and practical advice that help you make the changes necessary to live a long life full of vitality, passion, and purpose.

I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years by Master Ilchi Lee is a vital text for all of us who choose to go the whole way in this lifetime. Lee is a master teacher, who has developed the actual practical processes and methodologies to live an optimum life. Now he takes us to the next step, revealing “The Ancient Secret to Longevity, Vitality, and Life Transformation.” The foundation of this book is found in Sundo, a Korean system of mind-body training with a tradition stretching back thousands of years. It offers us the best road for the second half of our life, from 60 to 120. I am personally choosing to study with Master Lee to “Live 120 Years” to fulfill my own life purpose. At 88, I feel as though I am “getting newer every day!” For all of us who are experiencing the deep inner call to participate fully in the next years of the most radical transformation humanity has ever known, this book is an essential guide.

“I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years is a magnificent book that ignites the true spirit of what it means to live fully—regardless of your chronological age. But more than that, this book provides the precise formula you need to follow if do indeed want to live as fully as possible, as healthfully as possible, for as long as possible.”

There is an endless stream of books, magazine articles and internet—propagated news disseminating new information about how to optimize your health, longevity, and happiness, often combined with simple instructions how to reach these goals. Unfortunately, the great majority of this information is more aimed to benefit the people who are behind these recommendations (and their products), than the confused reader.
Bestselling author Ilchi Lee’s new book I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years stands out amongst all these. It is a beautifully-written blend of personal experiences, ancient Eastern wisdom, science, and concrete practical advice that will make you radically rethink your concepts about aging, health, and personal fulfillment.
Ilchi lays out how the development of self-reliance, meaning, compassion, connectedness to nature, physical fitness, and healthy diet are all essential ingredients to a healthy fulfilling life way beyond the 80 or so years that most people have accepted as their biological age limit.
Ilchi has been practicing what he teaches for decades, and I have been fortunate to experience firsthand how his visionary view of the human potential actually translates into reality. I have physically climbed the 120 steps to a meaningful and fulfilled life that he describes in his book, and have incorporated his advice into my own life. If there is one book you don’t want to miss, it is I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years.
