Are you a victim?
Yes, YOU, the successful executive, millionaire entrepreneur, renowned author, rock star, superwoman, hero man? Do you sometimes fall into the victim mentality?
I know I sure do!
It’s In the details. In micro behaviors. Micro statements. Micro thoughts.
Here’s a pretty HONEST video about it for me. I’m not wearing makeup, nor dressed up. Actually, I made this video after a 45-minute bike ride to my yoga class on a hot summer morning…
So, are you ready to release the need to go into victim mode? Here are three strategies you can try:
- PAY ATTENTION: Pay attention to your words, your thoughts, your statements. When something happens that upsets you, what is your first thought, your first reaction? Then take note (mental or on paper, whatever works for you)
- CHALLENGE YOURSELF: Ask yourself, “How is leaning into being the victim in this particular moment or situation supporting me? Honestly listen to the answer. Releasing your VICTIM default is a choice and an ongoing practice. Remind yourself that self doubt will hold you back!
- WHAT IS POSSIBLE?: Look for the expanding thought, idea or possibility. Say to yourself, “If I’m not a victim of this situation, what is possible for me?” Then go through this short list:
- What would you say?
- What could you do?
- What would you try?
- What could you create?
You are no longer a VICTIM, you can choose to be empowered and allow life to happen FOR you instead of TO you.
