Stop Being A Victim – Become Your Own Hero – Mindset Monday


“Life chips away at us all. Some play the victim. Some choose to be a survivor. And then there are those who choose to conquer.” – Unknown

Are you a victim to your own life?

Do you feel like life has happened TO you?

Are you waking up every morning with a groan as you drag yourself out of bed because there is nothing exciting enough to make you WANT to wake up?

Behind my house there are a bunch of cacti. The cacti remind me of certain people in my life that go around with a hard exterior. Something happened to them in their past and they decided that the world was out to get them, that life is not rigged in their favor and that they need a protective shell so that they don’t get bulldozed.

The truth is, that perception is a choice. And one you may not even be conscious that you’re making…

How To Recognize A Victim Mentality

You can recognize a victim by their language. It is full of complaints, a lot of “why me?” and a general feeling of “life is happening TO me and I can’t do anything about it.”

Victims are often working in jobs they hate, living with relationships or families they complain about and functioning in a constant state of discontent and depression. They often don’t realize they are living this way because they truly believe in their minds that they aren’t accountable for any of it. They are convinced that life is a matter of luck and fate and they are waiting impatiently for the tide to turn in their favor.

As you may have realized by now, this is largely ineffective and rarely will a victim see a true change for the better in their life. Because even if something good comes their way, they find a way to sabotage it subconsciously due to their deep belief that the world is out to get them.

Until the victim decides to change his/her MIND… nothing is going to change. But the good news is, it can really be as simple as changing your mind. Everything begins with a mindset. Everything you attract and create in your life comes from the beliefs and conversations you have in your head every single day.

How To Stop Being A Victim

Victimhood is NOT attractive. Companies don’t want to hire victims. People don’t like to be around victims. One of the best things you can do for yourself in your life is to choose to end this mindset RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW. There is nothing more beautiful than a person who stands in the confidence of their own being, someone who takes full accountability for their life and lives in a way that reflects that.

Step ONE: Focus On Other People

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Nothing gets you out of your own head and your own problems more than focusing on someone else. For this reason, when you wake up in the morning, I want the FIRST thought in your mind to be: what can I do today to bless someone else?

You have a gift to give, my friend. You have something inside of you that the world needs. Find it and then give it away. You are a candle that gets to wake up in the morning and set the world on fire!

Take this one step farther and write 3 notes to people every morning. Just a simple note of acknowledgement and appreciation. Give or mail them to these people as a way to LIGHT them up! And see how it makes you feel and changes your day in the process.

Step TWO: Focus On Gratitude

“The real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you become.” – Robert Holden

The next thoughts that come into your head at the beginning of the day should be focused on gratitude. What am I grateful for? What am I blessed to do today? Fill your being with the feeling of gratitude for being alive, for breathing, for living on a little green planet that is spinning around a giant ball of fire we call the sun. No matter what kind of day you wake up to, there is always something to be grateful for.

Step THREE: If It’s To Be It’s Up To Me

“Your life is your ship and you are the captain. Choose your course, take the wheel firmly and get on your way.” – Michael Josephson

Take responsibility for your life. Take responsibility for the impact you are going to make in the world. You cannot just exist passively; you are affecting our planet whether you are out actively trying to make a difference or if you are choosing to lay in bed all day. If it’s to be it’s up to ME. This kind of thinking will completely change the world.

You are the captain of your own ship, my friend. Your destiny is to be here in this life right now and to THRIVE. Choose to take ownership of every single day and your life will radically change. I am so proud of you for being here reading this post, because it means you are ready!
