Stop playing the victim / by Tyson Pop

Eventually, you need to take responsibility.

Whilst there are always excuses to justify the position you’re currently in, more often than not they’re just reasons you use to stop you ever needing to take action. When you can own the fact that there’s an area of your life you’re unhappy with, you can begin to make change.

Stop blaming your friends, family and difficult childhood for the fact that you’re overweight, less intelligent, more anxious or overwhelmed. It won’t help you. Rather, start taking practical steps towards improving it.

Ask people who have overcome the struggle you’re trying to overcome.

People have done it before.

You can too.
