“I find that people who experience a great deal of injury and illness in their lives appear to enjoy continuously telling everyone about their maladies. When these people begin to tell me how proud they are of their maladies, I respond with indifference to the sickness itself. “You don’t have to live with this pain,” I suggest. “You are stronger than any disease.” I do not give the injury any credibility.
I treat my family and myself in this way as well. I have long noticed that in our family we rarely talk about being tired, not feeling well, or feeling something “coming on.” My wife and I have just naturally sent our children messages that they are more powerful than any disease process. In other words we want out love to be more associated with health, strength, and spiritual consciousness, than with being sick, tired, or injured.”
Wayne W. Dyer, in “There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem”
