I think most successful people in business and life have some degree of determination.
True determination comes when someone tells you that you can’t do something and all
you want to do is prove them wrong.
It’s when something serious and or catastrophic happens. You’re lying in the hospital.
Things don’t look good. We hear stories all the time of someone who was told there
was nothing that could be done for them, they’d never walk or work again. Here a couple
A stroke patient had a very serious stroke. The doctor said there wasn’t much they could
do for him; the prognoses didn’t look good. After a lot of hard work, determination and
very supportive wife who advocated for him, especially when he couldn’t. He is now back,
not a 100%, but back doing his artwork.
Another is Robert Wickens Indy driver. Involved in a horrific crash causing a catastrophic
spinal injury, neck fracture, fractures in both arm, both legs, both hands and four
fractured ribs. Robert set goals for himself; to walk again, to dance at his upcoming
wedding and to get back to racing.
Last fall he stood, leaning on a walker, and said his wedding vows. Later he danced
with his bride. He has recently started walking with a cane slowly.
All good things in recovery start slow.
Both of these men came back from debilitating injuries. They were determined,
they worked very hard and had amazing their wives and family.
Remember never give up, recovery is not a sprint it’s a marathon.
Every year treatments and therapies get better improving outcomes.
