Name It & Claim It Victim-Centrality

It's time to rewrite the script for the next chapter.


Most of us in the West have been trained since the early 20th century to live a victim-centric narrative. To believe someone else has the locus of control on our daily lives...which then convinces us that we're victims. Seeing victim-hood around every corner.


Victims of other's:

...decisions

...privilege

...opportunities

...businesses

...finances

...education

...heritage

...skin

...hobbies

...religion

...political persuasion

...gender

...age

...generation

...time period

...hair color


Name it and someone is a victim of it...real or imagined or simply irrelevant.


So what narrative are you living out? What victim-mindset, no matter how real, are you letting define you for the next season of life?


Q. What one thing can you do today, regardless of others 'out there,' in order to begin to rewrite your story?
