Sully's Recovery World Today

You can’t beat a good, old fashioned quote in recovery.

Sometimes we read them and we think they are cool, others have deeper meaning to us, and every so often, we read a quote and think, ‘that must have been written for me! Here are my current favourites, which I hope will be as much value to you, as they have been for me…

  1. Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. – Robert Collier
  2. Participate in the process, surrender the outcome – Unknown
  3. Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. – Confucius
  4. My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.” – Anthony Hopkins
  5. I personally believe this: We have only today; yesterday’s gone and tomorrow is uncertain. That’s why they call it the present. And sobriety really is a gift… for those who are willing to receive it.” – Ace Frehley
  6. There is no better high than discovery. – Edward O. Wilson
  7. Be grateful. These feelings, no matter how painful, are part of living. Today, we are alive—not anesthetized, not sedated, not passed out. Take control of your feelings and through action you can change. Today, as every day of sober living, we have a choice.” – Ann D. Clark
  8. When I focus on what’s good today, I have a good day. When I focus on what’s bad, I have a bad day. If I focus on the problem, the problem increases. If I focus on the answer, the answer increases. – Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous
  9. Change your behaviors and your feelings will follow. – Susan McMahon
  10. Obstacles are those frightening things that become visible when we take our eyes off our goals.”– Henry Ford
