Day 20 – Stockdale Paradox

 

Only 2%-8% experience the miracle of instant deliverance.  The rest have a miracle every single day for months and years to gain freedom.  Ted Roberts of Pure Desire

 

I had no idea.  I also didn’t realize how much God wants to use and does use the process of recovery to grow and develop me as a person.  

 

It all comes back to having the right mindset.  How we think about recovery matters!

 

The ability to acknowledge your situation and balance optimism with realism comes from an understanding of the Stockdale Paradox.
