The Victim vs The Gratitude Mentality

Aug 16, 2021
Victim Vs Gratitude

Michelle asks Dana the question: Do you believe that all things happen for a reason, or that they were meant to happen? I’d love to hear your opinion on this. 

Dana is a true believer that everything happens for a reason, especially the difficult, intense moments. She stops, gets quiet, and asks herself, “has this lesson come around before but in a different package?” If so- will I let it come up again but in a different way or tackle this issue now! This is a growth mindset.

Michelle gets rear-ended this week and talks about how she’s managing potential whiplash symptoms and Dana is getting a puppy!

On this episode we dive into: 

  • Does everything happen for a reason?
  • What we do with the reoccurring signs
  • The victim mentality vs the gratitude mentality
  • Choosing the worthy opponent before we sweat the small stuff
  • Dana pulls the Fate card, again! And reads the Serenity Prayer.

The Take Home:

What do we do with the signs that continue surfacing for us? Do we embrace them, tackle it and move on, or do we ignore it for it to just show up at a later date?

Be the spin doctor of your own life! Spin those difficult moments into learning experiences. 

Don’t forget - These events align us toward our bigger purpose.


“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty!”
