-Wolfgang von Goethe
The way to achieve long term goals is to start by identifying short term goals along the way that keep me on track for the things I truly want. It is the determination I show towards short term goals that allow me to keep my eye and aim on my hopes and dreams for the future. When I am determined, there is nothing that can sidetrack me. There will be urges, cravings and temptations to give in, but when I am determined to be successful in recovery, nothing can overpower me. Today, I will give thought, and take action to achieve my short term goals that let me know I am on a sober path. I will dream big and take humble pride in knowing that I am on a healthier trajectory today. I can do this, others have that have shown me that rather than being impossible, today I am possible.
