Costs of Continuing

A student of mine recently asked me if he should get the new iPhone 6:  

Does your current phone work?
“Yeah.”
Then why do you want a new one?
“Because it’s better.”
I see.  How much does it cost?
“$400.”
OK.  If I were to give you $400 to keep your current 
phone, would you take it?
“Well,  yeah…
…Oh.”

When it comes to the aging, chronically hurt athlete, the same thinking should take place.

If you could get a healthy, functioning body back, that moves as it should, keeps you fit, AND is free from pain, and all you had to do was stop playing your sport, would you take it?

I hope so.
But it’s your choice.
