“… we were prodded by unreasonable fears or anxieties into making a life business of winning fame (approval), money, and what we thought was leadership.” – 12&12
I added (approval) to the quote, as to me it feels much the same as fame. The money, the house, the car, the perceived success by others is great, but you know what’s even better? Recognizing how great I am myself, and celebrating it! Taking direction from my sponsor and really working my program consistently has transformed me into a useful, helpful, kind and wonderful person – someone I can love and be proud of. I’m going to stick with the winners in the rooms, work my program, and help others, because I love the new, improved me and, ILML!
