Humility

“Me first”, humility allows us to say, “No, you first, my friend.”

People often wonder humility means or what is the definition of humility. In the Bible, humility or humbleness is quality of being courteously respectful of others. It is the opposite of aggressiveness, arrogance, boastfulness, and vanity. Rather than, “Me first”, humility allows us to say, “No, you first, my friend.” Humility is the quality that lets us go more than halfway to meet the needs and demands of others.

Understanding the drug and alcohol process and how to use the proper coping skills when the desire to drink and use rises. Proper understanding of scripture and how to identify the strength and wisdom it provides gives you the needed coping skill that is currently lacking in your life.

Skills

Self Management – Self Development

Self-Development or Self-Management is a relatively recent tool in counseling here at Revival. Self-Management refers to the methods and skills which individuals can use to effectively direct their own activities towards the achievement of objectives. The basic idea or self-management is that the change can be brought about by teaching people to use coping skills in problem situations. Clients are encouraged to accept responsibility for carrying out assignments in daily life. In Self-Management programs people make decisions about specific behaviors they want to control or change. Some common examples include smoking, drinking and drugs. People frequently discover that a major reason that they do not attain their goals is the lack of certain skills. A self-directed approach can provide the guidelines for change and a plan that will lead to change.
