A simple approach

Postby wareagle10 » Mon May 01, 2006 1:25 am

I came across this last month and sent a copy to one of the board members; thought I would enter it here, some will like it, some won't.

The simple approach to the 12 steps!

Step 1: There's a power that will kill me.
Step 2: There's a power that wants me to live.
Step 3: Which do I want? (If you want to die, stop here. If you want to
live, go on).
Step4: Using examples from your own life, understand that selfishness,
dishonesty, resentment, and fear control your actions.
Step 5: Tell all your private, embarrassing secrets to another person.
Step 6: Decide whether or not you want to live that way anymore.
Step 7: If you want your life to change, ask a power greater than
yourself to change it for you.
(If you could have changed yourself, you would have long ago).
Step 8: Figure out how to make right all the things you did wrong.
Step 9: Fix what you can without causing more trouble in the process.
Step 10: Understand that making mistakes is part of being human (when
you make a mistake, fix it, immediately if you can).
Step11: Ask for help to treat yourself and others the way you want your
Higher Power to treat you.
Step12: Don't stop doing 1 through 11, and PASS IT ON!!!!

Hope this didn't offend anyone.

Take care and straight ahead, John.
