Staying in victim mode does not serve you. That is the reflection of the day. Today, I was actually in an interview this week. I’ve been interviewed by many organizations on the subject of victim and staying in the story of the victim. How does it hurt you? I find myself always, pretty much, at every interview talking about the fact that you need, at some point, to decide that you will not be a victim and that you will stop giving your time, your present and your future to this story of victimhood. We all have many terrible stories. We all have challenging stories and we could all decide to stay stuck in the victim mode. But do you really want to do that? Do you really want to just find excuses as to why you’re not succeeding? As to why you’re not happy! The excuse is that you are a victim. That is because of what happened to you. That it is because of your trauma that you are not living life to the fullest. Every single morning when you wake up, you have a choice. You have the choice to live your life with your past reliving your difficult moments and being the victim or you could be the person that decides that I will be victorious. My past is not going to determine my present and my future. I decided that I will no longer give my life to a past that was so destructive and painful. It is not a switch. It is daily work and part of reflecting is part of that work. Just don’t accept the status quo. You challenge yourself to rewrite your story. You have the power to do that and it all starts with a choice every single day. Let’s reflect, reset and reconnect.
