Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!...

“Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.” Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit. The exact wording of step 8 is: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. “The readiness to take the full consequences...

Step Seven of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step recovery program is about getting rid of character defects and replacing them by practicing humility and spiritual principles. Working on the seventh step requires frequent thoughtfulness and commitment to being honest, courageous, and humble. We discovered our assets and shortcomings when working on steps four and five. With Step 7 we became prepared to deal with these qualities so that in Step 7 we could be ready to act. The exact wording of step 7 is: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Tonight, we talk about Step 7 3:25 To...

If there’s one thing that I know for certain, it is that when I finally became willing to turn myself over to the program, my entire life changed. When the people in the rooms say that all we need is honesty, open mindedness, and willingness, they aren’t kidding. I personally felt that I actually just needed willingness because that willingness is what lead to open-mindedness, and eventually lead to honesty.

Willingness can be defined as being eagerly compliant. For me, Willingness means embracing change rather than fighting it.

It is not possible for people to find success in recovery unless they are willing to put in the necessary effort. In order for recovery to take hold, there needs to be a powerful driving force supporting it. This power is provided by the willingness to change.

First to mind?

Willingness seems to be the beginning to recovery
