Drug and Alchol Rehab, Clear Concise Mental Picture…

by Daniel · 0 comments

A clear concise mental picture of what you want to attain is exactly what is necessary to win.

In Beijing the summer Olympics are in full swing. This morning Michael Phelps won his 3rd Gold medal in as many days. As reported on MSN.FoxSports.com; In winning the 200-meter freestyle Tuesday, Phelps ran his career Olympic total to nine golds and avenged his only individual loss in Athens four years ago, when a 19-year-old Phelps took on the 200 free just so he could compete with Ian Thorpe and Pieter van den Hoogenband.

He finished third that night in what was called the “Race of the Century.” This time, it was hardly a race at all. … “I hate to lose,” he said. “When you lose a race like that, it motivates me even more to try to swim faster.”

Yes but Dan Michael Phelps is an Olympic Athlete, I am a factory worker! And your point is? You are correct winning in life is not about winning gold medals, money, or status. Yesterday I received a personal comment on one of my Blogs. She said that it seemed that I was implying that winning in life had everything to do with status and money. She said she believes that money should mean little when it comes to success.

As you may notice I enjoy answering these types of emails openly (I always protect the identity of the author). I do this because most folks do not like to ask questions. I believe that if one person is interpreting my message this way there is probably more as well.

Briefly on the issue of money, money is earned by people in direct proportion to the quality and quantity of service they perform. Money is necessary. It is the love of money that is detrimental to successful living.

Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal. Therefore, I believe that you are the one that determines success in your life. We are born with a desire to succeed. In my years in the recovery community I have noticed guys and gals attain marvelous feats. They seem to have everything you would ever want in life. They have arrived! Then one day you hear that they have passed away, or they are actively using again.

What happened? They stopped living, they stopped dreaming, they settled for their level of success! It is so important to have meaning in your life. That may or may not have anything to do with earning money. Add recovery to my definition of success. Successful recovery is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.
