Life is as much about patterns as it is variety. It is as much about stability as it is adaptability. It is as much about gunning it through the straightaways as it is taking it slow through the twists and turns.

At the very least, this is an interesting story that piques curiosity, and also feeds into the belief that positive thinking does yield results. That simple change of mentality of losing/gaining back his pride had a real effect on my friend. To me, that seems a very real demonstration of the true power of the human mind.

It's easy to get caught up in the flow of day-to-day life. Easy to get swept away in the constant, pulsating motion of it all. Sometimes it's important to take a step back, reset, regroup, and re-engage. Whatever that means to you.
