I have two questions for you to consider if you would.
Have you ever felt you lost control over your own life? And Have you ever felt that you were a victim of your circumstances?
I certainly have.
I lost control over my life years ago when I was still living in Brazil because the circumstances around me were really bad: high inflation rates, recession, lack of jobs, a lot of fear and for many years it felt as if I was in a rough sea paddling desperately to keep my head above water.
Eventually, the external circumstances changed for the better actually, but not for me.
I still had a job that I didn’t like, and I was not making enough money or the kind of money I wanted to be making.
I was not living my life; I was just surviving it.
That was when I became aware of what was going on with me and realised that I was the only one who could get control over my life back.
Perhaps you have experienced something similar to me, a complete loss of control over your life.
When you go into the mindset that you are a victim of the circumstances, you lose control over your life. And when this happens, you have to work hard not to get the life you want but to keep your head above the water.
In other words, you choose surviving rather than living.
Or you get control of your life back.
Having control over your life gives you the courage to change what needs changing. It also gives you the courage to speak up and ask for help if you need it or to speak up when you are not happy with the way you are being treated.
Now, if you are thinking that this is hard work, you are right. It is hard work, but the alternative is much harder; the alternative is victimhood.
Let’s take action right now.
When you are in the mindset of being a victim of the circumstances, notice how you feel; notice how your body reacts and notice how you behave.
Then change the mindset to “I’m in control of my life” and notice how you feel; notice how your body reacts and how you navigate your reality.
And finally, be aware of your circumstance; be aware of what’s going on with you right now.
If all is well, excellent. Keep going. Enjoy it.
If you are not happy with your circumstances remind yourself of who has control over your life: You or the circumstances.
You are the only one who can get the control back.
No one can do it for you.
You have the courage and the strength to take action and bring control over your life to you.
You have the courage to speak up when things are not exactly as you want them to be.
You have the strength that comes from within to change.
When you change what’s inside, you change what’s outside too.
You are not a victim of your circumstances.
You are in control of your circumstances.
