    THE OTHER PANDEMIC: VICTIM MENTALITY - Episode 88

    THE OTHER PANDEMIC: VICTIM MENTALITY - Episode 88

    Just raising the subject of victim mentality is a dangerous business because those that buy into it will vehemently defend their position - a position born out of negative experiences, negative influences, or negative bias. The thing is… I can’t let it go any further – not that I think my talking about it will change the world – but it may just help a few of you that are listening to get ahead in the world or at least get past whatever victim based thinking is holding you back.

    QUOTES:

    "But victimhood was seductive, a release from responsibility and caring. Fear would be transmuted into weary resignation; failure would no longer generate guilt but, instead, would spawn a comforting self-pity." From the novel Intensity by Dean Koontz

    "We must stop this incessant victimhood mentality.
    Somebody else will not fix things.
    Somebody else will not make me healthy.
    Somebody else will not make me happy.
    These things are my responsibility.
    Not the neighbour’s,
    not the government’s,
    not the church or the civic club."
    Joel Salatin

    "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." Harvey Fierstein

    CLOUT CHASERS - Episode 87

    CLOUT CHASERS - Episode 87

    Clout chasing is an expression that came out of the American rap music industry and in simple terms, a Clout Chaser is someone who does and says things simply for the purpose of becoming more popular. You may not be familiar with the term, but I think you’ll recognise the sort of person that today’s topic defines pretty quickly.

I mean you need to watch out, you need to watch out, you need to watch out…" Doit Jack (YouTube)

    QUOTES:

    "We need to ascend beyond our own petty Resistance, our own negative self-judgment and self-sabotage, our own "I'm not worthy" mindset." Steven Pressfield

    "Turning pro is a mindset. If we are struggling with fear, self-sabotage, procrastination, self-doubt, etc., the problem is, we’re thinking like amateurs. Amateurs don’t show up. Amateurs crap out. Amateurs let adversity defeat them. The pro thinks differently. He shows up, he does his work, he keeps on truckin’, no matter what." Steven Pressfield
