Victims, Survivors, and Conquerors of the World by Rob Sperry
/1 Comment/in Motivational/by
Victim’s blame everything they can on someone or something else. They blame their upline for not enough support. They blame the product for not working as well as they thought it would. They find every excuse known to man and they use them frequently. They get so good at giving the excuses and buy into their own philosophy that they become more and more of a victim. Ralph waldo emerson said, “shallow men believe in luck…. strong men believe in cause and effect.”
If you are a victim of life don’t worry there is hope…. Of course you must first be honest with yourself and identify who you are. In order to fix the problem you have to admit there is a problem.
Survivors have the least amount of disciplined persistence necessary to survive and keep going. They still have tons of fear.CONQUERORS – This is the top of the food chain. Many in this category were at one time survivors and even possibly victims but they progressed. Conquerors have the abundance mentality. They expect and deserve success. Their mind set is at a whole different level. Fear doesn’t rule their universe. If they have fear they take action immediately and their fear leaves. Conquerors know that 80 percent of learning comes from outside the classroom. We learn by doing!!! 85% of millionaires don’t have their college degree. It is cause Conquerors don’t make excuses. They dig deep and make it happen. No one who is normal ever makes history. Don’t be normal. If you want to be normal than you want to be in over 10 k credit card debt, working 9 to 5, making 30,000 a year with no retirement. If you want to be normal you will do what the average american does which is watch over 6 hours of TV a day. Conquerors aren’t normal.
Conquerors are the opposite of victims. The glass is half full. They seek out support from their upline but if they don’t get it, they take initiative and figure out a way to make it happen. They think they are lucky always being at the right place at the right time. They understand luck favors the persistent.
There is a great quote in Chineese proverb: “The best time to plant a tree is 2 years ago. The 2nd best time is today.” I think that quote relates well with our topic. Sure maybe you haven’t done what you could have or should have accomplished. Start today. Find the courage and inner strength to believe in your potential.
Keys to success:
1. Don’t ever quit based on discouragement or an irrational emotion (survivor)
2. Take initiative and become the conqueror
These principles apply in life. Obviously in life there are things that you should quit and need to move on to. The key in quitting is not to base a decision of an irrational emotion. Pre-determine when you will quit. Make decisions on quitting from a conquerors perspective. Here is another great quote, “People think that is holding on that makes you stronger; but sometimes it is letting go.”
Lastly I want to point out that each one of us has some victim, survivor and conqueror in us. I know Fathers who are great Fathers but lousy at business. I know athletes who are conquerors in their sport but are victim’s in other aspects of their lives. The goal is to become better in all aspects of life but especially the one’s that you deem valuable.
