Why playing the victim really holds you back.

We all have times when we are a legitimate victim, but there are times when we play the victim and this hurts our progress.

When we play the victim we avoid taking responsibility for something and it is only by taking responsibility that we can fix something. As a victim you don’t have control over something. Control is key to success though. As a victim you are waiting for someone else to save you. This may or may not happen and then you are stuck in a losing position.

What is the biggest thing you have been a victim of and how can you turn it around by taking control.

Just because something happened doesn’t mean you have to keep thinking about it.

Sometimes an event occurs and for whatever reason, we keep it in our minds even though it really doesn’t matter to us.

We carry it around even though it is not something that will help move our life ahead or is important in any particular way. It helps to take an inventory every now and then of what we are thinking about. You will be surprised at what you find. And once you find “junk” thoughts and toss them, you will feel much better and be more focused.

What thoughts are you carrying around right now?

You weren’t born to just pay bills and die.

Most people just use 1/20th of their abilities.

It isn’t that you don’t have the ability; it is that you don’t know what to do with it. You probably don’t have tightly focused goals that tie you interests and abilities together, so you can be a laser in life. Without that you have no reason to go to any extra effort or take risks. Yet that is what is required if you are going to be the person you were meant to be.

Are you ready to live your life?

How to find the “sweet spot” of what you should do with your life.

Chances are you want to know how to optimize your life. Here are two things that will enable you to follow your dream.

Optimizing you life occurs once you know what you love and then combining that with your strengths. You have a number of things you love and you have a number of strengths. But they don’t all work together. If you list your loves, and list your strengths then look to see where they intersect, you have found the “sweet spot”. This is where you true success will come from.

Time to do what you love and do it well.

Getting out of your comfort zone is not the answer, it is the start.

I never said getting out of your comfort zone is the answer to your issues. What is does is create space for the answer.

Getting out of your comfort zone creates disruption. It is confrontation to your status quo. It is the end of silence that allows you to stay stuck. These are the new conditions that are needed for you to shake things up and find a new course to achieve the life you really want.

What can you get uncomfortable with right now?

Own your problems.

Take responsibility for the bad things that happened to you in the past, even if you are totally convinced they were not caused by you.

No matter what has happened to you, take complete responsibility for it—good or bad, victory or defeat. Own it. We resist taking ownership of issues we had in the past, because it is painful to think we had something to do with them. But while painful, it is freeing to do it. If you spend time fighting things in the past, you are working on something you can’t help and you are no longer moving forward.

Now is the time to own a problem from the past that is bugging you.
