Thomas is here now what's the matter with her I don't know she got sick at the office and had to come home in a taxi well can't I do something mom can I I don't know I just don't know it seems like there's always something well there you are doctor how is she what's the matter with her well we'll have to find out a badly upset stomach no fever keep her quiet and make a rest then bring it to the office in a week for a full checkup oh she won't want to do that doctor she's not doing well in her work lost a chance at a promotion last week oh he wouldn't want to stay home to rest she lost a promotion yes it went to another girl Oh how did she take it now what was her attitude well she was disappointed of course she hadn't been feeling very well and couldn't do her best work shiver attitude was a dejected attitude does an attitude have anything to do with Alice being sick well it could have everything to do with it a great many orbits have attitudes it's often result in illness you mean a healthy guy like me could get sick from an attitude like say like a fellas not making the team yes that's what I mean mom there are attitudes about many things that could cause illnesses why if you could see some of the patients have come into my office a couple of weeks ago I remember well let's call him John John has headaches very bad headaches and there's no primary physical cause for them that I can find he just worries a lot and has headaches or there's well call her Mary although Mary is seldom very ill she has indigestion no food allergies no fevers but Mary is afraid I'm not sure yet of what all let's take the case of call him Joe he has what we call a a tick Joe's case is complicated one for a specialist but like probably half of my patients he suffers from worry or attitude problems well well how can an attitude make you sick how does it fella I mean how did Alice get sick mmm well let's think mom I can see Alice working in her office thinking about that promotion she knows is do one of the girls but who will get the promotion well Alice will of course she is counted on it she's determined to get it but what if she fails how can she explain her failure but when people think Alice was worried about failing and being worried she was tense and made mistakes but each mistake made her still more tense until she made herself sick you see now how it works mark Wow you mean worrying about failing can actually make you fail and make you sick that's right Marvin that Alice isn't really sick oh yes she is don't you forget that alice is going to need care and time and lots of help to get well but she'd have got the promotion if she hadn't not necessarily but she could do a best toward getting it you see if Alice realized earlier what was happening she could take a much healthier attitude she could see this particular opening as well as Marv says as one chance to play on the team for a while then she could find out just what her chances were and for that matter whether this was a promotion she really wanted whether she wanted to make this team she could start by getting the facts with the facts of her situation she could make her plans in relation to those facts she knew that she was doing her particular job well she could plan for a chance to do even better things then she could carry out her plan with a broader perspective perspective sure you know see the problem in relation to your life after all that promotion wasn't the only thing she wanted in this world and very likely not the most important thing for so why worry about it in advance or feel a complete failure afterward if people would just remember the three steps to a healthy attitude one get the facts about what's worrying you to make your plan in relation to those facts and three carry out your plan that way you gain a perspective that will make your attitude better make you feel better well I've lectured long enough I must get along I'll see it to the door dr. Thomas all right so long Marvin goodbye doctor I wouldn't worry too much about Alice if I were you just make sure he's not at the office your father will be here any minute now could you set the table for dinner what's your mom I'll go see if Alice needs anything I'm gonna think about what dr. Thomas said so do I get the facts make your plan and carry out the plan what are the fact maybe I've been worried and trying too hard what I'll have to do is go talk with the coach it won't be easy find out just what I can do to make the first team and go on those trips with the facts I can make my plans figure out what practice I need most work on improving what's wrong instead of worrying about it then carry out my plan practice ball handling and shooting keep on trying you know there's a sense of achievement that comes from making one making it right that's probably just as important as making the first team and I'll have more fun too that's probably what Doc Thomas meant about perspective I think dr. Thomas is right about Alice I mean yeah about me too about you son yes I didn't have a chance to tell you coach didn't put me on the first team I'm not going to Middleton a game next week oh I'm sorry I know you wanted to very much oh that's all right mom maybe with a little more practice I'll make the team but I can see now what's more important in the game I have a better a better perspective you
