~ Liz Primeau, MT: “We all know someone who says, ‘I can’t do it… The thought of getting hurt is horrible.’ But you know what? If you’re willing to put up with an OT, you have a great opportunity to teach others to not be afraid of heights. Here are some of my top quotes from a conference I recently attended.”

~ Marilyn Spaeth, PT: “My OT gifts me with the courage to take risks that others fear. They help me find the strength to walk the journey through the discomfort.” ~ Lisa Olson, MT: “They motivate me by helping me listen to the fears and failures of others, then rebuking them with humor and encouraging me to find my unique way.”

These occupational therapy quotes are powerful tools for motivational speakers, but they’re even more inspirational when coming from the OT himself. What makes OT so compelling? Well…it’s all about giving the people he cares about the gift of hope. The best occupational therapy quotes are loaded with hope, especially when you consider that OT is the one on the receiving end of the equation…so he understands exactly what it means to ‘give the gift of hope.
When a doctor says ‘I don’t know why I’m the doctor,’ or when a carpenter says, ‘Why am I the center?’ – they allow you to pause and ask yourself some hard questions. Our culture and our society are built around the idea of the self-employed doing whatever they want in pursuit of their dreams. The OT breaks that mold – he doesn’t know why he’s the therapist, he just is. He’s there to guide, support, and encourage us in the things we need to do to move forward in our lives, but most of all, he’s there to be there for us when we need him.

In my OT training classes, I learned over two dozen valuable lessons about hope, motivation, and the power of asking questions. The one that resonated the most with me as an OT was the quote from Benjamin Franklin (who was an example of someone who didn’t think much of the self-employed): “If you want to make money without working, get another job.” This stuck with me because I immediately recognized the power of that statement – if you want to make money without working, get another job. However, it’s not always possible to simply get another job; sometimes patients need to be assisted for them to achieve some measure of wellness and/or recovery.
