Are you a Victim or fighter
It's not about actual fighting and victimising someone, That is a totally different thing.
This is about the different state of mind between the two.
They build a business and lose it, go through bankruptcy, lose everything, face serious illness and yet refuse to give up. They are that boxer in the ring that keeps getting up through sheer strength of will, despite looking as though they are about to keel over any minute. Then miraculously, they win!
The fighter sees every setback as a challenge, an obstacle as something to overcome. Sees every failure as a lesson that teaches a way not to do something.
The fighter does NOT give up, just changes the approach, says I WILL do this, I WILL be successful and keeps going regardless of what life puts in the way.
The fighter reads and studies successful people to aid in the pursuit of success. He/she helps others on their road, always ready with a helping hand understanding that there is enough abundance to go round for all to be successful.
The fighter does not consider he/she has no chance because of how many businesses are already on the internet more that there are billions of customers and the amount continues to grow.
And does not see even a pandemic as a setback but more chances to help others and thereby grow the business further.
Nothing is their fault, it's not bad choices that ruin their life, it's always external circumstances.
They want the shortcut to success, ie: someone telling them the easy way to do it. They refuse to learn for themselves and say they don't have time to find out or learn the information. You can point them in the right direction to learn what they are looking for but they refuse, wanting, expecting, to be told simple steps to get there. They waste time demanding to be given the secret to success, rather than getting on with it.
We also know those that faced with a lot of work to reach their dreams say 'I can't do that, it's too hard' and give up before they have started. Or they begin, don't get instant results and give up loudly proclaiming it to be a scam.
The sad part about that one is they then go back to being conned out of money by 'Get Rich Quick Schemes'.
I read books years ago by various healers and each one at some point had had a person say they didn't want to be completely better. As they were they had sympathetic people helping them and money coming in because of the illness. Recovery would mean having to do things for them self and actually living their life.
There are those that get an illness and become a martyr too it or get an illness and succumb to it. Now that may seem harsh but it's true. I saw it firsthand when I had 3 serious illnesses for 2-3 years over 10 years ago. A couple of people would keep repeating words such as 'I don't want to die'. No one does but it's better to say 'I intend to recover'.
I looked at it as efficient to have the 3 at once and get it over and done with.
I decided I was going to recover from all of them and this was one of life's tests. When it was over I started my first online business. When I look back now I see it as the universe's way of giving me a hard push to set me on the path I should be on.
This is NOT a bid for sympathy, it's long in the past, it's a way to demonstrate to your mindset has a lot to do with success or failure in every aspect of life.
Every setback is a lesson learnt. Yes we all despair at times, thinking we will never learn it all or reach success. We all hit a point of overwhelm at times, that too is perfectly normal. The trick is to let those moments out, wallow for a minute or two, then pick yourself up and move forwards.
Mindset plays a big part in success. Hit an obstacle and see it as a puzzle to unravel rather than a disaster. Feel like you are pushing a boulder uphill? See it as a way to get stronger.
Feel floored by an illness, see it as a way to become healthier.
Unsupportive relationships? See it as a challenge to educate them, a lesson in acceptance that we are all different or as a time to move on.
Whatever is happening in your life, there are always choices and lessons to learn.
What are you, fighter or victim? Do you choose, I WILL do this or Poor me?
