August 2016 Update: What Motivates You?

August 2016 Update:  What Motivates You?

Hi Tribers!

It will only take a few minutes to read our August update.  Even though a lot is going on, most of it’s just boring business related items.  So we’ll keep to the fun things here.

Read on to learn how you can help everyone who uses rTribe!


noun | mo·ti·va·tion | \ˌmō-tə-ˈvā-shən\

Definition: The general desire or willingness of someone to do something.


What motivates you to find freedom from your addiction?

Maybe it’s the fear of further pain, the thought of losing a spouse, more money poured down the drain.

Or perhaps it’s the hope of what could be. Not just blind optimism but hope that freedom can actually be yours.

One thing that has always motivated me is inspiring quotes. There is nothing quite like reading or hearing someone put words to my experience.

Hope, inspiration, and motivation.

That is why we created the daily motivational messages in rTribe. We wanted daily reminders of the truth. Daily doses of encouragement to keep on keeping on, no matter how dark or deep the valley gets.

Marriage and Recovery

Josh_Ally_WeddingAll I can say is this is a picture of how grateful I am. I’m not that different than you, just someone on their own path towards freedom. And I am so thankful and thrilled to be taking it a day at a time with my new bride.

But getting married, like starting recovery, is the easy part. Staying committed is the true test.

And recovery, like marriage, is a battle. What matters is that each day you decide to fight. In light of this, I thought I’d share one of my favorite quotes:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

~Theodore Roosevelt, Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic” delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910.


Keep striving,

Josh and the rTribe team
