The first step is not knowing!

When you are truly willing to learn, you are ready to change and transform your life. Many addicts and alcoholics say that they know, that they know what to do to stay clean and sober, to be and stay in recovery. Many say that they know but do not take action and as a result there is no wisdom. Knowing how to clean the windshield is not enough, you have to actually do the work to clean it.

While it is vital to stay open and willing to learn, you have to first accept and acknowledge the fact that you do not know. This is the first step, not knowing. If you say you know you cut off any possibility of learning and of transforming your life. Admitting that you do know allows you to create the space to be open to authentically learning and as a result creating absolute miracles in your life.
