The Two Types of People that Hold the Key to Your Acceptance as a Pre-PT

Have you ever been in a situation where things aren't going as planned but you found somebody that helped you change your mindset for the better? Maybe they were able to redirect your focus and give you perspective. You might have found someone that probably had a much harder situation than yours and was able to explain how what they did or went through was far harder than what you're going through right now and it was helpful. That person was one of two people that hold the key to your acceptance.

In our lives, there are two types of people, the enabler and the motivator. You must choose very carefully who you share your frustrations with and who you're going to with your problems. Enabler means “a person or thing that makes something possible.” The very thing you are trying to make possible, the enabler is going to light that fire and make that “something” possible. For example, if you're going to them with the mindset of “I'm never going to get accepted” then they're just lighting whatever you're giving them. When you are going to someone who’s an enabler with your struggles or your crappy situation, whether it's grades, whether it's fears, whether it's your anxieties they will allow you to justify the feelings that you're going through at that time.

An enabler will not understand that pushing through is part of your experience, it’s defining you and can inspire all the people that come after you. They enable you to do the very thing that you should not be doing. If you're not careful, enough of those enabler seeds planted inside of your frustrations, anxieties, and negative thoughts will grow a tree of doubt. It will grow a tree of anxiety or a tree of frustration and ultimately will lead you to pull the plug on this very profession that you have chosen. The very profession that you have fallen in love with.

However, a motivator is the person that you go to when you're feeling down. That’s who you need around you, motivators, aka the right people, to help you change your perspectives and figure out what the missing pieces were and how to put them together. Sometimes you have to be your own motivator. Every situation of a Pre-PT that I have seen give up on their dreams is because they did not have a motivator close by. If you will ever give up on your dream to become a physical therapist, it will be because you don't have someone that can push you right back on the horse that you just fell off. Someone that can push you right back on the path that you were on before. Those motivators may be people around you who are either on the same path you are on right now. They could be people who have been on it in the past, or people who understand it. Maybe they can just keep you focused because they have your best interests in mind. They have your goal and dream in mind to become a physical therapist. 

You are PT school qualified and you deserve that acceptance letter. It’s going to be difficult and will require you to be very careful about the people that you're sharing your experience with. You have to believe in yourself but you're also going to need people around you that still believe in you even more than you do. Your motivators. Avoid the enablers. Embrace your motivators!
