Feel sorry for yourself for just a moment, and then move on.
This week, Dr. Pilcher discusses victim thinking and how to eliminate this behavior from the workplace. Overcoming obstacles is never easy, but when we don’t let shortcomings get (and keep) us down, we become more resilient.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- How do we change our frame of mind to break this habit?
- How can we look beyond obstacles to press on towards goals?
- How can we take specific actions to stop this line of thinking?
Only the Victim Can Save Themselves People find themselves trapped in a victim thinking mindset because there are benefits to victim thinking that feel good. For example, we want people to feel sorry for us, our huge workload, and we enjoy the feeling of empathy from others.
The old saying "Experience is the best teacher" has probably never been more true than in the workplace. But what if you could learn those important workplace lessons without having to go through the pain yourself? That's the idea behind The Great Employee Handbook.
