As we begin to prep for a new class, here are some ideas to make your recovery more productive and fun for you.
Let me set the stage: its story about a young man named Monty, whose father was a horse trainer. He would go stables, race tracks, and farms to train horses. As a result, the boy’s high school career was continuously interrupted.
One day at school, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be when he grew up. That night the boy wrote a 7-page paper describing his goal of owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in detail and even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch and all of the things he was going to include in his ranch, such as buildings, a track, etc. He drew a detailed floor plan for everything he dreamed about owning one day.
The next day, he handed hi project to the teacher. After two days, he received his paper back with an ‘F’ on top of it. The teacher asked him to meet her after class.
The boy went to meet the teacher and asked, “Why did I get an F?” The teacher said, “This dream is too unrealistic, as you need lots of money to buy land, pay for horses, and other things. You have no money. There is no way you can ever do it. Write a more realistic goal and I will reconsider your grade.”
That day, the boy thought a lot about it and then went to his father about what to do. After listening to the boy’s problem, his father replied, “Dear son, it is your decision and you have to make up your mind about it, as it’s important to you.”
After a week when the boy submitted the paper again, he submitted the same paper as before without making any changes but one stating at end, “You can keep the ‘F’ and I will keep my dream.”
Years after, the same school teacher went on a field trip with 30 kids to camp on a ranch for a week. It was a big ranch, with buildings, track, and a big house. To the teacher’s surprise, it was the same boy’s ranch to whom she once gave the ‘F’ for that paper.
But, realizing what she did back then, before leaving the ranch she said, “Look Monty, I can tell you this now. When I was your teacher, I was a dream stealer and I did that to a lot of kids. Fortunately, you had enough gumption not to give up on yours.”
Moral: Follow your heart, no matter what. No dream is too big or too small when one works hard to live it.
Do you dream of really knowing how to influence people and get them to take action? To become CLEAN and Sober? When I think of this, I am reminded of how many times I am asked, “What are the true secrets of Getting Sober, the things no one teaches?” Well, the secrets are those truly elite things that most People do not teach because they do not know. In fact, only a select few on the planet know it and they do not share, as they do not want you to have this powerful information. You know this in your heart of hearts. You dream of knowing what few do and, HOW TO BE HAPPY JOYOUS and Free CLEAN and Sober!
You have just scratched the surface, you feel there is something that will radically change the way you communicate with yourself and increase your effectiveness beyond what few achieve.
You know, really know, that those who really know how to get sober are out there, and you have found them at LiveFree, do something much different from those who do not. Most people get hung up on the content of what they do and overlook the true magic that can happen when someone shows you how to change from the inside out, which is what we do, join us and put addiction in your rear-view mirror.
