“Time is limited, so I better wake up every morning fresh and know that I have just one chance to live this particular day right, and to string my days together into a life of action, and purpose.” Lance Armstrong
Action and purpose are the key ingredients to a happy, joyous and free life. Of course for the addict abstinence is essential and the main thing! Recently I was reading a research study on the key aspects of people with long term sobriety in mutual support groups. The study indicated two pertinent features or variables that people with long term sobriety had or followed.
1) Sponsor, people that have attained prolonged recovery had and used a sponsor. This makes quite a bit of sense to me, even pro athletes have coaches.
2) Service, people that get an stay sober perform service within their mutual support groups. What is service? In terms of life it is the fulfillment of our purpose, it is living a life of purpose!
It is a given that people that have a sponsor and perform service attend meetings. What are meetings? ACTION! What is service ACTION and PURPOSE! Live passionately and live life well! You deserve it!
Go, Go, Go…
