Alan tells his amazing story to audiences who have gained courage to understand and help a loved one recover, get rid of the shame of their own addiction, and to bring empathy that only someone who has lived as an addict can offer to others who struggle.
We invite you to read what audiences have to say.
He shares the key concepts that finally inspired him to take back his life:
Persistence: Never give up. Persist until you succeed. Deal with pain. Keep “throwing it against the wall.”
Focus: Pay attention. Focus on what is right, the “next indicated action.” Look for opportunities.
Willingness: Be open to trying new things, especially outside of your comfort zone. Be willing to make mistakes. Put your energy out into the world; it will lead you somewhere. Act as if.
Faith: Faith in self, faith in the universe (a Higher Power). Take risks; know that you will somehow “walk out the other side.” Listen to and trust the voice inside. Don’t be afraid to oversell yourself; you will always figure it out as you go.
Humility: ASK for help - it’s OK! We all need help. Don’t judge others; they are working out their own paths. Be grateful for what you have and for your accomplishments.
There is a life-affirming way to escape the stress, fear, loneliness, and pain of your existence. You too can WALK OUT THE OTHER SIDE! Alan can start you on your own journey there, no matter what struggles, obstacles or barriers are in your way. Or he can help you figure out what to do to help a loved one that is struggling with an addiction whether that means intervening or walking away.
