When you internally dialogue to yourself or engage with others, what kinds of conversations are you having?
As the storyteller within those engagements how do you position yourself?
As a ‘victim’ or as a ‘creator’?
Let’s say there is a continuum from one end to another. Where do you say you lean towards?
Check this from David Emerald…
“One of the fundamental differences between the Victim Orientation and this one [Creator] is where you put your focus of attention… For Victims, the focus is always on what they don’t want: the problems that seem constantly to multiply in their lives. They don’t want the person, condition, or circumstance they consider their Persecutor, and they don’t want the fear that leads to fight, flee or freeze reactions, either. Creators, on the other hand, place their focus on what they do want. Doing this, Creators still face and solve problems in the course of creating outcomes they want, but their focus remains fixed on their ultimate vision.”
Think of yourself as a creator of your own potential. To put that more into practice means keeping increasingly focused on what you are seeking, what you are facing, actively finding solutions and then…keeping focus.
