Some people hold onto their victimhood. They don’t realize that they are sitting on rocket fuel.

The experience of fear and suffering can weigh you down and bury you, or, it can propel you to create change in your life. It all depends on what you believe. Your point of view of any situation determines the effect that it has on you.  This isn’t to say that you won’t feel fear, or suffer from unhappiness from time to time, it’s just that these experiences don’t have to define who you are.

A Rose By Any Other

The idea that you have a choice about how you look at things may be new to you. It takes some new language and a willingness to experiment. For example, when someone has acted in a way that causes us pain, we usually say, ‘I’m hurt.’ We are literally becoming the hurt. It is more accurate, and more empowering, to say, ‘I’m feeling hurt.’ This slight shift in language opens our mind to a new possibility. This state of hurting is not who we are, it is something we are experiencing and, like all experiences, it is temporary.

Practice Makes Perfect

Take some time today to notice how you talk about the things that are happening in your life right now. Does your language unconsciously tie your identity up in these experiences? Experiment with how you describe your feelings. Try the ‘I’m feeling….’ as a replacement for ‘I’m…..’ See how this impacts your point of view. It may be a small shift at first, but it is the first step towards supercharging your life.

You’re Half Way There

Untangling your self from your distressful feelings gives you a new perspective. The act of choosing to be who you are, unburdened by being the victim of negative experiences, will open up possibilities that were unavailable before. You will begin to see that there is a YOU untouched by external conditions.

There are techniques that create the optimum conditions in your brain for these changes to take place, and including them in your life will boost your ability.

Transforming victimhood into rocket fuel is possible. It will take many small steps to get there, but once you ‘believe that you can, you’re half way there’.
