In my many years of talking with people about their various health challenges, I’ve discovered that some people want to take charge of their health and well-being, and some people don’t.
I thought you’d enjoy this article by Jesse Cannone, CFT, CPRS MFT, The Healthy Back Institute, 328 Main Street Suite 300, Gaithersburg, MD 20878.
There are two types of people: Wanna-be’s and Achievers
And in working with thousands of back pain sufferers I’ve found that what type of person you are plays a BIG role in how long it takes for you to get relief.
Here are a bunch of differences:
- Wanna-be’s obsess about their condition – Achievers obsess about trying anything and everything until they are pain free!
- Wanna-be’s expect someone else to solve their problem – Achievers take full responsibility.
- Wanna-be’s do what they are told – Achievers think for themselves.
- Wanna-be’s tell everyone about what is wrong – Achievers talk about what they are doing to improve.
- Wanna-be’s wait for their pain to go away – Achievers do the work necessary to get rid of the pain.
- Wanna-be’s always have a reason why it can’t be done – Achiever’s know there is always a way and they find it.
- Wanna-be’s “can’t afford” to try different treatments (yet they can buy cigarettes, coffee, fast food, cable TV, etc.) – Achievers do what it takes to make it happen.
- Wanna-be’s believe their case is different – Achievers know others have done and that they can to.
- Wanna-be’s think in terms of COULD and SHOULD – Achievers think in terms of IS and CAN BE!
So which type are you? Tell us your your type in the comment box below.
