When life happens, you can be either the author of your life or the victim of it. Those are your only 2 choices. There’s nothing in-between. This may sounds harsh, but its true…every day we choose one ‘road’ or another, and the consequences follow us forever.
If you want to be the author of your life:
See the problem (let’s do it!) -> Find solution (what can i do?) -> OWN IT (say: its up to me!) -> Acknowledge reality (ok, so this is the way it is) -> Seek reality (what is really happening?)
If you want to suffer as a victim:
Avoid reality (ask no question) – Fight reality (that is NOT how I see it!) – BLAME (if you all just do your job ffs!) – Personal excuses (its not my job, bye) – Wait and Hope…Hope and Wait (ahh, if it was meant to be – it’ll happen)
Looks tough, isn’t it? But remember, no-one is born as a victim. It is always an attitude and approach!
DO NOT FEAR REALITY!!
