It will happen…

“Great changes may not happen right away, but with effort even the difficult may become easy.”

The Ninth Step Promises:

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through.

We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.

We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.

We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.

No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.

That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear.

We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.

Self-seeking will slip away.

Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.

Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.

We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.

We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.

Life is sooooo goooood!  I could tell you stories about people I have helped throughout the years.  Usually a couple of weeks into their 90 and 90 they will call and say “hey Dan I am not coming to the meeting tonight I am not feeling well”, I respond what about your 90 and 90?  100% of the time they say, “man that is not working anyway”!  My response is simple I ask, “how would you know that, this is only day 13 you have not completed it”!  It is the same thing with the promises, we must “do” the work before they materialize.  The work is the steps!  Know this, it gets better and better and better!!!

Hey have a great holiday and please know I love you!!!

Go, Go, Go…
