For years we have worked with people from all over the country to meet their physical therapy and sports performance training needs. We know that for a person to experience great success in anything they do, they need to have heart, mental toughness, and are COMPETITIVE. Some people have that unstoppable spirit and because of that they experience greater success than others. We love to have these people in our clinic because they raise the bar for everyone, including us! Over the next couple of weeks we are going to display some of these people. We hope they motivate you, as they continue to motivate us. This is why we look forward to showing up to work everyday!
This Week’s “Tough Guy”: Eddie King
We recently brought you Eddie’s story and wanted to give you an update on his progress. He began his road back at a rehab facility in California, and came to work with us starting the summer of this year. Eddie has made great progress thus far, and is committed to walking AND competing again. Make no mistake, Eddie COMPETES every time he is rehabbing at our clinic and it is the competitive spirit that drives Eddie, and everyone for that matter, that is committed to achieving a goal. The video above is an amazing example of the hard work and effort he has put in to get to this point, considering where he was a little less than a year ago. Like us on Facebook and follow Eddie’s story! September is Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month. Here are some links for you to see how you can help:
We got some other tough people we are going to recognize in the next couple weeks, people that are working with us at Rehab Plus, people that have overcome great adversity to move forward in their lives. We’ve put together some PEARLS OF WISDOM regarding toughness we hope you enjoy:
Pearls of Wisdom: TOUGHNESS
