In reading “Money: Master the game“, Tony Robbins asked a couple of thought-provoking questions…
“What’s in your life today that was once a dream?”
“What was a desire you had in the past that at the time seemed difficult or impossible to achieve, but now it’s in your life today?”
An immediate thought came to mind. After suffering a couple of years with back and hip injuries, I started to lose hope that I would ever be able to walk normally or stand for more than 5 minutes.
Would I ever be able to walk my Dogs again? Would I ever be able to go out with my friends again without having to sit down every 5 minutes? Will I be able to exercise normally again?
What kept me going? Hope!
I hoped that if I visited enough health care providers, someone would have an answer and be able to fix me! Someone finally did lead me to a path of full healing, my physical therapist!
After a ton of hard physical therapy at the PT office and at home, I’m now able to walk, stand and exercise like I used to! I even wrote a book about my experience “What Now: My Journey of Trial and Error while Healing Back Pain Naturally“.
My lesson from that experience is that back health is so important and back strengthening and core exercises should be included in your health & fitness routine! Check out “How To Use Your Core For Daily Activities“.
I firmly believe, more times than not, that good things happen to people who are persistent, have a goal, and are willing to put in the hard work!
