Values To Live By For Successful Recovery


I am energised by my mission of providing an inspirational coaching environment for my clients. My passion for the vision of eradicating the harms caused by addiction and addictive behaviours, one client at a time keeps me alive and purpose to march ahead with conviction, courage and wisdom.


I view my life as a journey to be enjoyed and appreciated. I create an atmosphere of fun and happiness so all around me will enjoy and be happy as well.


I learn from my mistakes and dust myself off and try again quickly. I understand that wisdom means consistently learning from both my own and other’s mistakes. I am willing to grow and master the fundamentals so that I can help myself and others learn, grow and master too. I ask for help from those around me so that I can bounce back quicker from my mistakes and use this knowledge to help others.


I am a team player. I do whatever it takes to achieve goals. I focus on co-operation and flexible enough to change, if what I’m doing is not working. I ask for help when I need it and speak well of myself and of Coaching With Substance both in public and private. I speak with good purpose using empowering and positive conversation. I refrain from participating in sarcasm or gossip. I acknowledge what is being said as true for the speaker at that moment and I take responsibility for responses to my communication. I greet and farewell people using their name. I apologise for any upsets and then look for a solution. I seek to only ever discuss concerns in private with the person involved.


I am dedicated to give my best in everything I do. I will dedicate my actions in line with the mission and vision of Coaching With Substance and integrate CWS coaching methodologies because this is a marker for my success in being able to maintain recovery. In working for CWS I will always stand by each team member and proudly recommend our coaching, fundraising and addiction services to the community.


I believe in a world of with substance and depth, in a higher being or realm of divinity. I seek balance in my spiritual, social, physical, educational, community, health, family, financial, emotional and intellectual aspects of my life and realise that I need all aspects to function and be complete. I have quality time to myself, with my family and also to renew my spirit.


Coaching with Substance always strives to deliver the best coaching services and practices to clients, therefore I choose to continue to grow intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually with my Coach so I can manifest the best results. I am truly responsible for my actions and outcomes and own everything that takes place in my work and my life. I am accountable for my results and I know that for things to change, first I must change.


I have compassion for the negative circumstances I may find myself in and refrain from attaching to any end results. I have compassion for the people I work with for whatever negative circumstances they may find themselves in. I believe that these negative moments are the most useful contrastive way I can practically use my skills and initiative to effect change in lives of people who are experiencing darkness. Therefore I aim to be the change I want to see in the world and intend to be the light in their world.


I speak the truth and with integrity towards those I love, those I work with, those I interact with, those that are a part of my group or team and anyone who crosses my path at all times. I deliver what I promise and only make arrangements I can keep. If for any reason I cannot keep my word, I will communicate this in the first instance to the person or people involved.


I totally focus my thoughts, energy and attention on the successful outcome of whatever I am doing. I am willing to win and also allow others to win. I am determined to display competence and confidence in all my actions. I am determined to continue being on the path of success.


I view my life as a journey to be enjoyed and appreciated. I create an atmosphere of fun and happiness so all around me will enjoy and be happy as well.


I always look to be efficient and follow a system that works. I follow a system or process that works, until a new system that could be better is introduced. I suggest system improvements at my first opportunity.


I am competent in my actions so my clients and team mates can feel comfortable in dealing with me at all times. I am disciplined in my work therefore my results, growth and success are consistent. I realise that competence is the result of discipline and hard work.


I have faith in the goodness of life and am grateful for being a person with purpose. I appreciate the miracles that abound and say thank you and show appreciation often and in many ways. I make sure that everyone around me knows that they are appreciated and I am happy to have them in my life. I celebrate my wins and the wins of my clients, and team.


I am an abundant person, I deserve my abundance and I am easily able to both give and receive it. I allow abundance in all areas of my life by respecting my own self-worth and that of others. I am rewarded to the level that I create abundance for others and I accept that abundance only shows up in my life to the level at which I show up.
