Challenges test our courage and our ability to change.

In both our lives and our recovery, it is counterproductive look at something daunting and say, “No way, I’ll never pull that off.” Instead of saying “I can’t,” we need to acquire and master the tools we need, one tool at a time. And then we must give it a shot, whatever “it” happens to be. As we master each new tool, we learn what it feels like to succeed with it, and we’re ready and excited about learning and using and succeeding with the next tool. Success breeds success. That’s an incredible feeling. All because we tossed our preconceived notions about what we can’t do into the garbage.

Just for Today
Listen for the words “I can’t” and change them to “I can.”
