“It’s up to you
If you think you’re a winner you’ll win,
If you dare to step out you’ll succeed.
Believe in your heart, have a purpose to start,
Aim to help fellow man in his need.
Thoughts of faith must replace every doubt,
Words of courage and you cannot fail.
If you stumble and fall, rise and stand ten feet tall,
You determine the course that you sail.”
“Rarely have we seen a person fail who has throughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves.” (Alcoholics Anonymous, Chapter 5, “How it Works,” page 58)
