I came across this video on YouTube. The hero in this story was told for years that he would never walk unassisted again. Over 15 years he gained more and more weight, and become increasingly disabled and unhappy.
Then one day, everything changed. He decided to begin a journey of healing. Over ten months he lost 140 pounds and was not only able to the walk but run! His transformation is remarkable.
Beating the “odds” isn’t that uncommon in health care. A person given six months to live with cancer, is still alive six years later. Someone told by doctors that he has no hope of surviving an operation, walks out of the hospital and back to a normal life. A lung transplant patient completes an Ironman triathlon.
The truth is, no one knows anything. Not for sure. The human body is capable of unbelievable healing and the human mind is capable of believing and striving for untold victories.
Don’t like the prognosis you’ve been given? Ask someone else. Don’t like that answer? Keep talking to people till you get the answer you want. The only one who can really find out what you’re capable of is you.
