Victim or Victor?

The 20th century innovator Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” That powerful truth illustrates the strength of your attitude over all kinds of health challenges that might otherwise take you down. No human being is entitled to a negative attitude, no matter how bad the handicap or disability. Like a man in a wheelchair once said with a huge smile on his face, “I’m not crippled inside!” A happy life does not “happen to you.” Joy is generated inside of you, despite external circumstances. Life grows from your heart. Science has only begun to scratch the surface of comprehension into the self-healing and self-killing power and potential of the human will that you hold in your hands. The question is, what will you do with this power? Perhaps it depends upon what you want. You are the Director of your own Health Department. You can end your own Healthcare Crisis. You are your own Supreme Court, handing down your life or death sentence. You are the Hero of your own epic drama. You choose your main character – either Victim or Victor. You are your Doctor, with chart and pen in hand, ready to write your own prescription. Therefore, the question is … What do you want to be?…

 

What do you want to be?… a Victim or a Victor? Unfortunately, you just might be the biggest obstacle to your healing. Don’t be tempted to shift the blame for your health on others, when the power to heal is within you. You cannot blame your ancestors, chromosomes, social class, schooling, employment status, financial status, chronic illnesses, habits, climate, family, friends or even the bad things that have happened to you. The choice is yours. Voices all around tempt us to believe that the pleasurable, unnatural, unhealthy choices of the modern world – which lead to chronic sickness and early death – are better than a long, healthy, happy life. Hospitals are filled with people who are sick and dying young because they said “yes” to all of the deceptive choices that the commercial world has given them. Many of these poor people will never even know what killed them. Believe in your healing. Believe in who you are becoming. You and the world around you will be a better place when you are at the top of your game. You are a beautiful, wonderfully-crafted person, a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Don’t sabotage your healing. You will receive the knowledge and power to grasp hold of the abundant life. I can’t do it for you. Your doctor can’t do it for you. A social worker can’t do it for you. Only you can do it for you! Choose a long, healthy and abundant life!
