Torah
 
From Tzavaat Harivash [Baal Shem Tov]
 
As translated by KEHOT publications
 
By GYE

"Shiviti- I have set God before me at all times." (Psalms16:8)

Shiviti is an expression of hishtavut (equanimity):

No matter what happens, whether people praise or shame you, and so, too, with anything else, it is all the same to you. This applies likewise to any food: it is all the same to you whether you eat delicacies or other things. For [with this perspective] the yetzer hara is entirely removed from you.

Whatever may happen, say that "it comes from [God], blessed be He, and if it is proper in His eyes..."Your motives are altogether for the sake of Heaven, and as for yourself nothing makes any difference. This [sense of equanimity] is a very high level.

Lehavdil - this is very similar to the 12-Step approach, in the sense of accepting Hashem's will for ourselves no matter what happens or how we feel.
