Yes, you have a choice! Do not let anyone tell you otherwise; including the little voice inside yourself – or the “friends” around you – who keep telling you that you don’t. You know the voice that I’m talking about. The voice that tells you that you’re not good enough, or that you are too old to change, or that you are the victim and there is nothing you can do to change your situation.
Have you ever thought of yourself as a victim? You know, where you blame others for the situation that you are in and then seek pity from others because of how hard that you think that you have it. This may sound harsh but for many people when things go wrong in their life - which happens all too frequently in today’s world – they begin to feel powerless, helpless and out of control. Then they often fall into a victim mentality where they become negative, focusing on what is going wrong in their lives. “Not enough” becomes a common theme: not enough money, not enough experiences, not good enough and …. and the list goes on.
But here is the more serious concern. When people see themselves as victims they begin to believe that they are, and begin to believe the voice that tells them that they are powerless to change. People who become victims start to focus on what could go wrong, what is wrong with the world, and what is wrong with themselves.
But the truth is – you don’t have to live as a victim – you do have a choice!
