attitude




Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
- Lou Holtz
another trilogy of wisdom!
an important lesson for anyone in recovery.

attitude is crucial when dealing with life's
ups and downs.
how we react and respond to the daily
challenges faced, determines our outlook.

we live in somewhat of a "downer" society.
simple weather reports become major topics
of discussion.
most news viewed and read is focused on
the negative.

all the worry and despair over the U.S.
economy is out of my control, and occupies
no space in my head.

it took some time, but i am able to keep
a positive outlook and attitude.

anyone with a substance abuse history
knows the depths of despair; no need
to revisit that lonely place!

count your blessings, rather than your gripes.

let go of pain and loneliness; embrace hope and friendship.

Hi John, Just like to ask you what you think of the age old question, did your environment impact on your character or is your addiction a product of heredity?
