A lot of
people feel like they’re victims in life, and
they’ll often point to past events, perhaps growing up
with an abusive parent or in a dysfunctional family. Most
psychologists believe that about 85 percent of families are
dysfunctional, so all of a sudden you’re not so unique.
My parents were alcoholics. My dad abused me. My mother
divorced him when I was six…I mean, that’s almost
everybody’s story in some form or not. The real question
is, what are you going to do now? What do you choose now?
Because you can either keep focusing on that, or you can focus
on what you want. And when people start focusing on what they
want, what they don’t want falls away, and what they want
expands, and the other part disappears.
