Willingness
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

Thought to Ponder
Willpower ... our will-ingness to use a Higher Power.

AA-related 'Alconym'
W O W  =   Willingness Over Willpower.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
peyton
