Expectations guide our progress in recovery, but having unrealistic expectations during the process sets us up for failure. When we set expectations so high, we add unneeded stress and decrease our chance of success.

One of the famous sayings used by Twelve Step groups is that you have to give it away in order to keep it. What this is referring to is that service work can help the giver as much as the receiver.

We live in a world riddled with envy. To a greater or less degree, everybody is infected with it. From this defect we must surely get a warped yet definite satisfaction. Else why would we consume such great amounts of time wishing for what we have not, rather than working for it, or angrily looking for attributes we shall never have, instead of adjusting to the fact, and accepting it? And how often we work hard with no better motive than to be secure and slothful later on--only we call that "retiring." Consider, too, our talents for procrastination, which is really sloth in five syllables. Nearly anyone could submit a good list of such defects as these, and few of us would seriously think of giving them up, at least until they cause us excessive misery.
