Self Examination

🔥 Self Examination

“For the wise have always known that no one can make much of his life until self-searching becomes a regular habit, until he is able to admit and accept what he finds, and until he patiently and persistently tries to correct what is wrong”. – Step 10 The 12 Steps and 12 Traditions.

Step 10 – Continued to take personally inventory and when wrong promptly admitted it.

When was the last time you admitted you were wrong about something?…

Not secretly admitted to yourself…

But admitted openly to the other person you had wronged?…

The selfish, self-centered nature of the alcoholic automatically self-searches the character defects in others…

The ego will always need something or someone else to blame for your problems.

Just as failure is a habit, self-searching of one’s own character defects can become a habit…

And needs to be a habit…

How do you change a habit?…

In this case a radical change of direction is needed.

When you are disturbed change the direction of your blame from out ward direction to inward direction…

Regardless of who is to blame…

You can spend the rest of your life pouting about how others have wronged you…

Or you can embrace the ultimate power in taking responsibility for your reaction to someone when they seemingly harm you.
