This was the aftermath of a Facebook Livestream. The subject: being a victim.
If you’re going to be a leader…
If you’re going to be a money maker in home business….
If you’re going to a someone who influences other people…
You don’t have the option of being a victim.
You don’t have the option of asking for attention by spilling your misery all over the place.
There isn’t anyone who hasn’t had bad stuff happen to them. That includes the heroes who walk across the stage and get the awards and give the speeches.
They do one thing differently from what everyone else does…
When bad stuff happens, they don’t broadcast it for the world to see.
Because as soon as they do, they’ve identified themselves as a victim.
And they’ll get sympathy, and attention, and even love.
But they won’t get respect.
And the only people willing to follow them are those who will also be victims.
Yes,, they will work through their problems. They’ll get help. They’ll heal. They’ll work with a coach, or a therapist, or a doctor, or a “sacred circle” of people they trust to tell them the whole truth.
They will NOT shout their problems out on their Facebook status.
They want draw a crowd of onlookers.
And they won’t attract the gossips who like to spread everyone else’s misery all over the online and offline world.
Have you allowed yourself to be a victim?
Have you made it easier for others to be a victim.
Change the pattern.
Find the emotional maturity to take care of your challenges with peace and dignity.
Position yourself in leadership.
Give strength and security to those who are calling out for it.
Let them find you.
And join you.
And buy from you, if you have something for sale.
Don’t be a victim.
Be a leader.
