Other people wanting you to live and improve is very motivational

March 3, 2015, My Positive Perspective host was joined by Nick Collins for the 200th episode. The episode was a unique one, not just because it was the first episode in the fourth season, but because it featured two men who were both faced with monumental obstacles after being involved in a car accident. At the beginning of the episode, Deierlein said to Collins, “I had the opportunity to interview you several times on my radio show, but I’m very excited that you could join me on the set here.” Collins said, “Yeah, I’ve been trying and working towards the goal of getting here and now that I’m here, it’s very satisfying.”

Deierlein says to Collins, “One of the things that will forever bond us is that we both had to recover from car accidents and being comatose. One of the hardest things is getting started towards recovery when you know there is so much ground to make up. How did you get started with your recovery?” Collins answers, “It’s hard, a lot of people didn’t think I would be this far along at this point. People getting excited for you and others who want to see you recover is very motivational.” Collins continues, “It is hard and you do have to take a huge step back to when you first learned how to walk because that’s how walking happens and you appreciate it so much.”

Deierlein then says, “One of the hardest things is being patient. You didn’t do anything wrong to get yourself in the situation, but you have to let your body change and that takes time.” Collins says, “They say slow and steady wins the race and it’s hard to remember that because when you start feeling better you want to be active but an injury takes longer to recover from. Those changes are hard to remember.” Deierlein then says, “Any little bit of progress is still progress, and it is important to always remember that.”

My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.
