You have probably heard since you were a small child that you can be whatever you want to be when you grow up. This statement could possibly plant a seed in a kid’s mind that they can be the President of the United States, a movie star, a ballerina, or a firefighter. There are not too many people that desire to be an addict or an alcoholic when they grow up, although there are many people that will be predisposed to addiction or have environmental and social factors that might lead them down the path of substance abuse. Once they have become addicted to alcohol and drugs, however, those childlike dreams go down the tubes.
Overcoming addiction by getting into recovery can light a fire inside you that might get you inspired to change some of your negative thinking into motivation to follow your dreams. Your childhood ideas may have passed, but sobriety is a time of sorting out your fears and this could hold you back from accomplishing some goals that you have set for yourself. If you put your mind to it though, you can achieve your dreams in recovery.
Take some action
To make your dreams become a reality, you will have to pursue them. Getting out of your comfort zone and taking some baby steps to get going will help you to start the process. If you never make an attempt to try, you will never know. A goal without action is merely a wish.
Ask for help
Your dream may seem out of the realm of what you can attain. Getting a mentor or eliciting help from a professional can give specific directions on how to get from point A to point B. By asking for help you can get some guidance to begin along with some knowledge for what you should aim for.
Do what you are afraid to do
Anxiety can make you drag your feet which can keep you from living your dream. By facing your fears head on, you can get started on something that you may have been preventing from thinking that you have what it takes to be successful. You get back what you put into something. If you do nothing, you will not get back any return on your dream.
There is a really good chance for you to achieve your aspirations in sobriety just by keeping it simple. Dream big in recovery because you can fulfill whatever you put your mind to when you apply your efforts.
