The International Year of the Victim

That’s what people will look back on 2020 as. Folks won’t remember the virus, except for how it made so many people roll over.

It started off with a pandemic that would supposedly kill tens of millions of people within months. All you had to do to help was quarantine yourself for a couple of weeks to “Flatten the Curve”.

Then those weeks became months.

Many folks spent 2020 cowering in their homes, wearing a mask 24/7, lathering their hands in low-grade toxins, abandoning their health, friends and hobbies out of fear of getting sick…

Many of you watched as the government tore your life to pieces, shredded your freedoms, businesses and coping mechanisms, then blamed you for not being enough of a ‘team player…’

The lockdowns failed to stop the spread.

The government also failed to protect folks from the knock-on effects of the lockdown – financial struggles, increased domestic abuse, cancelled weddings and funerals…

Some of you shook your fist at the sky, cursing cruel fate and everything bad that happened in 2020.

And some of you shook your first at the government, cursing them for selling you out in the name of fear, control and profit.

You know what all too few people did?

Do anything other than play the victim.

Don’t mistake me – you have perfectly good reasons to complain.

And yet being the victim never helped anyone.

In 2019, the world was full of people griping about how unfair life was – a convenient crutch that stopped them having to do anything difficult.

2020 only made it worse.

You want to know the best and only way to survive viruses, fires, rioting, government tyranny and economic collapse?

Take responsibility and take action.

Stop blaming other people, the year or fate itself for your problems.

Even if they caused it, the world won’t fix it, no matter how angry you get.

Consider this your Devictimisation Training – and consider it well overdue.

The inaugural issue of Phronesis Accelerator is your way out of the muck. This is your chance to begin a process that’ll give you back control over what’s in your power.

Here’s what the issue empowers you to do:

  • Create your power. This will make the PC police cry, but the victimisation hurt both men and women. I know I’m ‘supposed’ to say it hurt women/minorities more – and maybe it did. But is it useful to argue about who got the worse deal? Wouldn’t you rather learn how to reclaim your power as a man or woman?
  • Create your courage. If you ask the authorities, bravery in 2021 is where you blindly obey and give into fear. True bravery is about clinging to hope and not squandering your energies. Fear is useful in bursts, not as a ‘new normal’.
  • Create a sense of perspective. Remember in 2018 how everyone said it was ‘the WORST YEAR EVER omg!’ because, what, three ageing celebrities died? How idiotic do those people look now? Trust me – everyone calling 2020 the worst year ever are just as worthy of pity.
  • Create your vitality. The danger of modern life is living out of sync with your nature. It’s time to restore your connection with your true self and revel in all the wonder it brings.
  • Create surprises. Are you in a rut after months of working, resting and socialising at your desk or on your couch? Just because they say you can’t travel, that doesn’t mean you can’t break the stupor and really embrace living again.
  • Create human connection. This powerful influence secret always worked. Now, it works even better – and it shows everyone how great a leader you truly are. Best of all? It’s so fun they’ll thank you for it.
  • Create epiphanies. You know the Einstein quote about not solving problems with the same level of thinking that created them. So find your new level of thinking – it can happen in an instant.
  • Create your authority. People tell you to grovel, to beg, to apologise for being alive. Reclaim the sovereignty that is your birthright.

And if you refer someone to me and they subscribe before the issue goes out, you learn:

  • the ‘anti’ ‘bullying’ technique for persuasion and personal growth that’s older than the Bible,
  • how a recent linguistic shift (used by everyone from politicians to adult entertainment stars) reinforces a culture of fear – and what you can do about it.

Be sure to read the instructions in the Welcome Letter to learn how the referral program works.
