DAILY PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGES ARE EASY - Drink 3 cups of water, stretch as soon as you wake up, say hi to someone you don’t know, take a short walk at lunch, call your mom and more like that. Habit research shows that in order to build a healthy habit you also have to break down unhealthy ones. Part of that means building a habit of doing healthy things. So even if your goal isn’t to drink 3 cups of water per day, doing activities like that, every day, will dramatically shift your mindset and you’ll naturally begin doing bad habits less and good habits more.
DAILY INSPIRATION QUOTES ARE EMPOWERING - Whether you think they are silly or not, the fact is that they work. Here is an example: “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” When you read this, you’re brain chemistry actually alters and you become more open to experiencing magic that day.
DAILY AA PERSONAL STORIES & EXPERIENCES HELP - When you listen to a personal story from someone that has actually experienced a challenge and overcome that challenge, or worked a problem and solved that problem, or achieved a goal and helped another alcoholic, you will be able to create the same results for yourself.
These short and powerful 5 minute AA speaker bursts of recovery cover just about every topic in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Our stories of recovery and how we learned to live sober and let go of our harmful behaviors and character defects are amazing. Like Bill W. and Dr. Bob practiced in the early days of AA -- one alcoholic to another -- sharing our experiences -- we can grow into happy, joyous and free members of society. Give it a try.
