In this video, I give you some of my thoughts on how to stop being a victim and be a warrior instead. Because very often people are stuck in recovery not because their body just won’t recover or some outside circumstances are holding them back but because their own mindset is sabotaging their recovery.
They often blame others or things out of their control why they are stuck and can’t move forward. They have a mindset of a victim. They feel helpless and powerless towards making the change happen. But this is far from the truth!
But when you finally identify this negative mindset then you can start changing it and take your power back.
A few key ways you can start doing it is by:
1. Take full responsibility over your recovery
Understand that nobody else is responsible for getting you to full recovery. Yes, people can help and support you, but, at the end of the day, you are the only one that can actually do it. Taking full responsibility means you start to focus on your action, your thoughts, things that ARE in your power to change. And this is where all the possibilities begin!
2. Develop a warrior mindset
A warrior is someone who takes responsibility over recovery and instead of blaming themselves or others or focusing all that is wrong in the situation they find a way for this experience to make them stronger. They use the situation for their benefit – to either become stronger from this, to learn something and grow as a person. They don’t dwell in the past but look hopefully into the future. And take massive action towards their goal!
Remember, the situation can be exactly the same but HOW you react and act to it, what kind of meaning and belief you attach to it makes all the difference!
But the good news is you CAN absolutely change your mindset and the way you act. You are not powerless but actually very powerful when it comes to reaching to full recovery!
