About the Ilchi Lee Book:
I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years
New York Times bestselling author Ilchi Lee challenges you to radically rethink your ideas on aging, health, personal fulfillment, and what’s possible in your lifetime.
For most of our lives, we work hard, reaching for success, until we’re faced with retirement. If you retire at age 65, you may think you have about 20 more years to relax and enjoy your life. But what if you had more time? What if you had another 40 or 50 years to live? Would it make a difference in how you lived?
Ilchi Lee stresses that you can extend your life way beyond what most of us have accepted as our biological age limit, even up to 120 years. But the real question is, can we have not only a long life, but also a fulfilling one? Lee’s answer is a resounding yes, and it starts with the power of choice, a practice of self-reliance, and most importantly, a greater sense of purpose.
A visionary and master teacher who globalized ancient Korea’s mind-body tradition, Ilchi Lee lays out a clear path to a new paradigm of longevity and mastery of life. Through personal experience, compelling stories, the wisdom of an ancient Korean holistic practice, and current research on longevity and fulfillment, Lee shows readers how to live fully at any age without regrets.
The inspiration and practical advice you find in this book propels you to make the necessary changes in your life that would make a 120-year life full of vitality, passion, and purpose possible.

Q&A with Ilchi Lee
- Why did you decide to live 120 years?
I’ve been helping people live healthy, meaningful lives for most of my adult life, and as I get older, my desire to continue this becomes stronger rather than diminished. I thought perhaps that I may only have 80 or so years to accomplish my hopes and dreams, but meeting active, productive people over 90 years old gave me a new perspective. I thought, why not me? So I set a goal of living the number of years currently thought biologically possible.
- What element do you think is most important for life longevity and vitality?
I think it’s important to keep moving. Keep your body moving and keep your life moving toward a goal that makes your heart happy and your soul free.
- Is changing your lifestyle enough? When should you start?
Lifestyle is what we have the most control over, since we cannot change our genetics and it’s more difficult to change our environment. But lifestyle starts with our mindset. We should change our attitude and goal for our life first and let our lifestyle stem from those. The earlier you start, the better, but it’s never too late to make a change. People at any age have changed their longevity and quality of life.
- What makes you think you can live 120?
Nature will be the ultimate decision-maker for how long I live. But I know from experience that what you truly choose, if you take action, will happen with enough time and effort. Living 120 years is within the realm of human potential, and by aiming for that, I’m changing all of my thoughts, words, and actions to make that potential a reality.
- Who would benefit the most from reading this book?
While anyone could get something out of reading it, I think it will most touch people who are looking at life after 60 and aren’t inspired and thrilled to reach that time in their lives. I think it will also help people who have reached retirement, but feel their life is boring and changeless. There are also those who are excited about their later years, but need help with their physical, mental, or emotional health. Or there are people who live passionately with purpose, but feel they are alone and are looking to join with like-minded people. Most of all, I think it will help people who want to make sure they end their life without regrets.
This timely book will help you:
✔ Make the second half of your life a golden age—amazingly fulfilling and hopeful.
✔ Design and complete a life without regrets.
✔ Live the rest of your life full of abundant health and vitality.
✔ Uncover and understand your true and essential inner self.
✔ Contribute to a global culture of compassion.
