Is Your Poor Self Confidence Part of Your Victim Mentality?

I found the  following article by Dr. Robert Anthony  to be very insightful as to why people are where they are in their life. You absolutely cannot change your life if you have this mindset.

What do all of the following statements have in common?

*Ever notice as soon as you get in the Express Line at the grocery
store the line slows down?

*When I was growing up my mother was very distant and since then I
have had a hard time relating to women.

*Just when I was getting ahead my ex-wife’s lawyer came after me for
the unpaid child support.

*I’d like to have more money, but I have so many financial problems I
will never get out of debt.

*I enjoy personal growth, but my husband thinks all that stuff is
nonsense and doesn’t like me to participate in it.

*I’d like to open a business of my own, but my wife thinks it is too
risky, so I guess I had better stay at this secure and boring job I
dislike going to every day.

What all these statements have in common is the nature of the
person making the statement. As diverse as all of these statements
are and as diverse as the people who make them appear to be, each
statement reflects the same type of individual – a person with low
self-worth and a predisposition toward negative expectations.

The biggest common denominator all these people share is that they
are desperately holding onto being a victim. They live at the
Victim Level of Awareness. They almost celebrate the fact that they
are victimized. Their “stories” are always about their past and
the latest problems and tragedies that have befallen them. Of
course they are not really victims, but volunteers. They have made a
choice – usually unconscious- to remain a victim.

You can’t be a victim and be a success in life. You can be one or
the other, but not both at the same time. If you want to feel like
a victim and that’s what you affirm to the people around
you, you will continue to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. You
will repel love, defer happiness, attract illness or injuries and
sabotage any financial or business success. The problem is you tell
your story so well to everyone around you that you end up following
your own script.

The good news is REMAINING a victim is a choice.  If the above
describes you then ask yourself this question. “Is remaining a
victim moving me TOWARDS or AWAY from what I want?” If it is moving
you away, then you are paying a very high price to hold onto your
victimhood.  Now is the time to release it and move up to a higher
Level of Awareness.

Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress – IF YOU LOOK FOR IT!  No matter how
large or small, please record it in your Evidence Journal. It will
only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.

Truly Caring for Your Success!

I think you will agree … if you have the mindset of a victim – you are not empowered! Take total responsibility for your life and drop the victim mindset. KG
