The world will often tell you that the problems in your life are not your fault. Thousands will chime in with excuses that can convince you to give up on yourself. It’s popular today to talk about how ‘circumstances’ are very different from the past; when opportunity was prevalent at every street corner. In spite of the fact that our brains are more evolved than ever before, shying away from taking responsibility has become a main event in the minds of so many.
Your first duty in life is toward your own wellbeing and happiness. You are not being selfish when you make self-improvement your first choice in life. Because when you don’t value self-improvement, you’re not only unable to help yourself during hard times, but you’re also unable to be of any real service to others.
We begin learning early that we are living at the mercy of fate, or the super rich and powerful, or these trying times. So, what’s it take to see yourself as you truly are – an incredibly creative and powerful being? Because, only when you see the truth about yourself, will you come to the realization, that reacting like a victim is not a natural inclination.
Over the next five blogs, I will show you ways to realize that there are No Permanent Victims in our midst. When deeply realized, this fact serves as a compass that guides you toward the knowledge you need to take command of your life. Seeing the truth can be freeing when you deny the lies that make you feel weak when you are actually strong.
Victim No More tip # 1:
No longer accept that all circumstances are beyond your control. Sometimes bad things do happen, and you couldn’t avoid it. But for the most part, you are a circumstance-maker and circumstance-breaker. You are the molder of your life. You are the maker of your personality, no matter what the circumstances may be. You came here with the freedom to choose your attitude, and to respond to life intelligently. This is mandated by the very nature of your existence. You are wonderfully made. Your well-being depends upon your disposition. It’s time to break free of any “Poor Me” mentality that’s gripping you. Make the following statement your declaration-of-truth until you’ve read the second tip: “I deny the lie that ‘Poor Me’ is my destiny. I affirm the truth that a rich and happy life is waiting for me. All that I need do is persist with proving this truth, and many obstacles will fall away.”
With each of these Victim No More tips, you learn to give proper thought to a truth that will motivate you. As your motivation increases, you create an internal vibration; one that gives you power in the external world in which you live. You are a magic genie. You are increasing that motivation with each declaration that I offer.
