Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about this site from 48 day podcast. I'm hoping to get ideas on how to get to where I want to go from where I'm at and how to implement them.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
self employed
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I hope to be able to increase my income, quit my "Job", and have more time with my family. I have 18 years sobriety and would like to be able to help people and be able to make money along the way.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
My goal is to spend more time with my kids so that I can have a larger impact on them as a father. I work a lot of hours and don't see enough of them. I would also like to improve my married life.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I am a deep thinker, good listener, perfectionist, easygoing, and love people. I am good at finding ways to help others.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I am in the process of writing a book about Recovery and how to develop a relationship with God and get over hangups.

Interview with an alcoholic part 5

Posted on April 14, 2012 at 8:51am 0 Comments

QUESTION: Would it be fair to assume that you also suffered from depression during this period of time? Some of the symptoms that are peppered in your response meet the criteria for depression. (DISCLAIMER: Although I am not authorized to diagnose any mental illness.)

ANSWER: If when you say depression you mean high anxiety you are right on target. By the time I was 10 to 12 years old I had stomach ulcers...…


Interview with an alcoholic part 4

I want to play with your words for just a moment. You said that your addiction was a spiritual feeling. Behaviorally, I cannot observe "spiritual", but I can quazi-observe "feeling". In my world, that is a sensory activity. Which means if it feels, tastes, smells, looks, or sounds good, we do it and if it doesn't feel, taste, smell, look, or sound good, then we don't do it. For a very simplistic example, if I eat chocolate it is because I like the taste, smell, or feeling it…

You stated that at some point your god quit working for you and you were screwed. What did you mean by that?


I would like to emphasize that alcoholism and drug addiction are 1) the same and 2), a spiritual disease; at least in my opinion. What I mean by that is it's a spiritual act of worship...more

Interview with an Alcoholic part 2

I have heard from so many that they had to hit rock bottom, which it sounded like you did as well, before they decided to change their behaviors/lives and leave the addiction. What do you think has to be the starting point for recovery? Does every person have to hit their own rock bottom?...more

Congratulations on landing your first client!  I would love to hear how it all happened.  

As far as advice for you with working with teenagers, I would make sure that he or she feels like you are serving them and not their parents.  At the same time, parents can be a good accountability resource when the teenager is wavering some.  You could set up a "commitment contract" with your teenage client saying that you will not involve the parent in your accountability process as long as they conduct your sessions and times in an honorable dependable fashion.  They will feel they can trust you, but the parent will have confidence that things are going well if you don't call on them.  Of course, the parent may want updates, but the meet of the responsibility to respond should be on the teen.  In the end, that is what young adults want.  To be given responsibility.  Hope this helps!

Hey Keith,

It was great meeting you the other day.  I love the fact that you are a student of the Automobile University while you drive your truck.  You are a wise man and I love your energy as well. 

Also, I want to encourage you to check out this group on 48days.net called Speak it Forward http://www.48days.net/group/speakerssuccess

Speaking has been one of the main reasons I have gotten coaching clients.  


I know you heard about Kent Julian a few times at the event (I heard his name at least 10 times from Dan).  I am in a coaching group of Kent’s and he is legit.  


Also, he has an awesome bootcamp http://speakitforward.com/trent-thomas/#comments

where he helps people develop a Speaking Business.  Check it out!  


Let me know if there is any way I can help you, Keith.


To further success,
