Doctors, professional books, and even those close to us will sometimes unintentionally place a limit on our potential. They may be well intended. Sometimes they are correct. There are things that we may need to accept.
But … That is not for others to determine on their own! Consider Jason’s story. The VA was willing to sustain him in an institution. When he decided to go home with his parents their books determined that he was as recovered as he could be and cut off the rehab resources.
Jason, however, was still progressing. So his family continues to pay for rehab services out of pocket. The VA was willing to spend huge amounts on institutionalizing him but not to pay a much less amount for continued rehab services.
We understand that some people stop progressing in their rehabilitation and there needs to be checks and balances. But a formula should not be the determining factor. We are all unique and have unique situations.
Are you facing a physical injury, Post-Traumatic Stress, relationship issues, work problems or you are being told that it cannot be done? Don’t accept that on face value. Don’t blindly rely on the formula.
Be wise and listen to the counsel of others. There are some limits we may have to accept; but not without a fight. Not without first thinking outside the box!
