I was reading a story this morning about Joe Girard. Joe is listed in the Guiness Book of World records as “The Worlds Greatest Salesman”. Joe credits his success to a visit to a friends funeral. At the funeral he asked the Funeral Director how he decides how many Mass cards to print. The response was simple and changed Joe’s perspective. On average 250 people attend a funeral.
You may be thinking what does this have to do with recovery and me? I once heard someone say “If Bill did not go to see Dr. Bob in the hospital there would be no 12 step programs”! There are people right now that need help. They think they are alone. Family and friends may have given up on them, or are on the verge of throwing in the towel. On average we all know 250 people that would come to our funeral. If you are married double that number! How many of those folks have a potential issue with alcohol or drug use? Maybe someone you know needs drug and alcohol rehab!
We all get the emails pass it on or else…. You know exactly what I am talking about. Heck, I have passed them on at times for the value of the message. I checked my personal email contact list and I have over 1,100 people in my address book. I have several email accounts I suspect that my contacts are well into the thousands… You may be reading this because you are active in your own recovery or maybe you are a professional in the field. Either way passing on the message is simple go to your email contact list and pass it on…
