What are the odds? …..as we ask ourselves consciously or have in the back of our mind, when considering something new.
Do we anticipate a wonderful success or achievement when we put ourselves into the game or consider improving a part of our life? I tend to lean toward optimism but understand that we have reasons for expecting a certain outcome. For instance, when I consider ice skating, I lean towards being concerned of falling or being unsteady, as I have had my fair share of being unsteady and wobbling, and even the humbling fall on ice. I do know that there are coaches and experts available to teach me, but I am content with serving as a spectator watching others with their skills in playing hockey and in figure skating.
After talking with many patients, that have a true and real hearing loss, I and our staff do our best to help serve as a coach. We encourage and support the successes that can be found in so many ways. There are normally valid reasons for the apprehension and concern when considering help with hearing loss or tinnitus. For as a coach does what they do, to help someone achieve better abilities to skate, jump, or use their edges while stick handling a puck, we encourage those with hearing loss to hear and understand ways in which they may have never felt possible. We remain connected and genuine in the course of being a part of others lives. The odds of falling is a true concern, but what about the odds of simply skating and having fun? What are the odds of taking the areas of hearing concerns, missing conversations or pulling away from social situations, and beginning to become involved and engaged with others and the world we live.
The possibilities are countless in pursuing a goal, with knowledge and encouragement. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear better or to reduce the affects of tinnitus and ringing in the ears?
The odds are overwhelming to achieve great things!
