A couple of weeks ago, Bob Wilson at WorkersCompensation.com wrote a piece called "Breaking the Cylce of Entitlement." Apparently, Bob caught a lot of flack from injured workers. Bob claims they missed his point (and I agree). He wrote a second piece in an attempt to clarify.
Last week, I highlighted a study from German researchers suggesting that exercise could be a key to managing chronic pain without the need for prescription opioids. I got feedback on that post similar to what Bob received on his original article. Apparently, the phrase "Grab Your Running Shoes" offended people who don't feel they have the ability to do so.
Two days ago, Bob posted this video. After watching it, I realized we could have skipped all of the articles, the back and forth, the arguing, etc. and just asked people to watch this.
Attitude matters. Don't ever let anyone tell you how the rest of your life is going to play out. Even if you've been injured. Even if you're in pain. Even if your own doctors are telling you it's not going to get better.
