Get Into the Habit of Conquering Pain

By Dr. Peter Abaci

Read any article or book about success and names like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, and Tom Brady are likely to show up. A lot of time and research gets spent studying what makes high achievers special and different from others. One topic that garners a lot of attention when it comes to success has to do with building the right habits. In fact, Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s well-known book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a popular best-seller in the business community for many years. We all want to know the secrets for accomplishing great things so we can try to incorporate them into our own lives.

I think when it comes to our health and how we handle our pain problems, putting a high value on adopting the right habits is equally important. If things like living better, feeling better, and functioning better matter to you, then why not take a hard look at what it takes to get there? For most of us, a great life doesn’t just fall out of the sky; we have to make it happen, even in the face of real diversity.

A good first step is to visualize what you would like your health and your life to look like. If you are nowhere near where you want to be, then things need to change and work needs to get done to reach your goals. Next, draw a picture of how you see yourself on the left side of a piece of paper as well as a picture of what you would like your life to look like on the right hand side. In between the two images, draw a bridge and start to come up with a plan on how you can and will cross that bridge.
