Thought for the day July 14, 2017

Last Update: July 14, 2017

People, Places and things are all things that have to be changed In recovery, it’s important that we change everything. We must be stronger than our strongest excuse, and be stubborn about our goals. Remember life does NOT get better by chance, it gets better by change.

This surely sets the line between the consumer and the entrepreneur. Without going into details, it's quite easy to see the concept.

For sure - if we want to change we have to change everything. Depends on our goal i suppose

Sir, you are correct. Can I tell you what I have recently discovered about myself? The first thing I had to change was my mind (also known as the heart). When my mind was made new, then people, places, habits & hobbies began to change. I am now on a mission called: "I refuse to quit."
I am anticipating great things for you. Have a beautiful weekend.

Exactly right - we have to get out of head and into our heart - its about an 18" journey but so difficult for many

That's something we should all keep in the back of our minds. If we don't change, we leave everything to chance. And, as I get older, that is a scary proposition!

Sometimes, life can also get better if we are at the right place at the right time. But like you said, most of our success rely on how we accept changes in our life. Thanks for sharing.

You are right we can be in the right place at the right time for sure. Most of us in recovery have been in the wrong places and with the wrong people and if we want to change - we have to change everything, otherwise the negative vortex will keep sucking us back. Always appreciate everyone's thoughts and perspective on these thoughts.
