AA Thought for the Day
November 30, 2018
But now it appears that there are certain things which only the individual
can do. All by himself, and in the light of his own circumstances, he needs
to develop the quality of willingness. When he acquires willingness, he is the
only one who can make the decision to exert himself. Trying to do this is an
act of his own will. All of the Twelve Steps require sustained and personal
exertion to conform to their principles and so, we trust, to God's will.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, "Step Three," p. 40
