  • Victim Mentality

    $7.00

    The Victim Mentality IQ Matrix will help you to break out of the sense of helplessness you might feel at times when it seems as though nothing is going right and the world is conspiring against you. Playing the “victim card” can certainly gain you sympathy and acceptance, however it is also hurting you because you are giving up control and responsibility for taking ownership of your problems and circumstances. You will always therefore be at the whim of others or at the whim of the problems that life keeps throwing your way. Isn’t it about time you stood up for yourself and created your life with purpose? And it all begins with taking full responsibility for everything that happens to you.

    • Anyone who suffers from self-pity and indulges in self-blame.
    • Anyone who feels as though their life is completely out of their control.
    • Anyone who is prone to indulging in self-criticism.

    Richard Bach

    If it’s never our fault, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.
