The Cost Of Victimhood

The Cost Of Victimhood

When you look at anything in your life, You can see it comes down to one thing.

Your results.

You either get them or you don’t.

That’s it.

But we do one of two things when it comes to our results.

We either Own Them Or make excuses for them.

The second is Victimhood.

We blame others, we blame things, We blame this and that, but we never blame ourselves.

So we sit in this land of excuses feeling sorry for ourselves, hating the world.

But the reality is we either Did the work or we didn’t.

If we did the work and didn’t get the result, that’s cool, we did all we could.

If we didn’t do the work, then what the hell are we expecting to happen.

Do the work.

Get out of the land of excuses and Own your life.

Your results.

You either get them or you don’t.

That’s it.

But we do one of two things when it comes to our results.

We either Own Them Or make excuses for them.

The second is Victimhood.

We blame others, we blame things, We blame this and that, but we never blame ourselves.

So we sit in this land of excuses feeling sorry for ourselves, hating the world.

But the reality is we either Did the work or we didn’t.

If we did the work and didn’t get the result, that’s cool, we did all we could.

If we didn’t do the work, then what the hell are we expecting to happen.

Do the work.

Get out of the land of excuses and Own your life.

When it’s not on your doorstep

When it’s not on your doorstep

What do you do?

Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.

I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.

At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…

Because they don’t want to travel.

Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?

I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you

How far are you willing to go?

Motivation is not your friend.

Motivation is not your friend.

If you only wait for motivation to get going then you won’t get very far.

You are never going to find enough motivation to start something completely new,

And if you do it will be hard to get it to stick around once it does show up.

Motivation isn’t a very good freind.

It’s like the one friend who appears after all the chaos has ended and the waters have settled

Don’t rely on that friend

2020 isn’t over yet

2020 isn’t over yet

So don’t give up on it.

Yeah things haven’t gone your way

So what?

A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing

But they dont blame it on the year

And they don’t just throw in the towel

It’s not been the best year for anyone

Yet there is still time to make a better landing

Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow

Excuses weigh our souls down

Dreams weigh more than excuses

So they say, but I don’t think that’s entirely true.

We all have dreams but we easily disregard them when we realise how much work they require

Or when life gets in the way, we push them to one side and eventually forget them

But excuses

We make them on the daily

Even though deep down they burn us, because we know were not living the best version of ourselves

Even if we disregard our dreams, we make excuses for anything and everything from exercise to starting a book and everything in between

Excuses eat away at our pride and make us rethink different scenarios of what could of happened if we did that instead of making this excuse

Excuses weigh our souls down

Whereas dream we can easily chuck the duces up and go about our day to day
