Stop Being A Victim !

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to continue biting the inside of your jaw - in the very same place? Have you ever wondered why you bit your jaw this afternoon in the same place that you bit your jaw this morning? Why does that seem to always happen? The next time you accidentally bite the inside of your jaw, notice how that part of your jaw seems to poke out. The bitten area seems to stand out- waiting to be bitten again and again. Ouch!

There are times in life when we are victims of some misfortune or malady. When we become a victim of a situation, we become weak in that area of our life. As a result, we have no defense in that area and the same thing keeps happening over and over again. We can’t seem to figure out how or why the same stuff keeps happening. We want it to stop, but we don’t know how to make it stop. We don’t know how to regain control.

3 Steps To Stop Being A Victim

1) Recognize that you and only you can take charge of you.

2) Heal the initial wound. Fix the first situation. Too often, we try to build a
new house on a broken foundation. If the foundation is cracked, you will spend time repairing when you could be spending time polishing and enhancing. Broken foundations can only be repaired from the bottom up - not the top down.

3) Build a wall of protection. It is hard for the enemy to enter a mighty fortress.
