Robin Sharma’s The Victim To Leader Leap

Robin Sharma's The Victim To Leader Leap

Robin Sharma shares his tips on how to go from being a victim to being a leader. Use his tips to elevate your life to a whole new level.

“I believe there’s not a lot of payoff in safety and I believe a dangerous life is a greater payoff than a safe life. You don’t really grow unless you take some risks.”

“As I crisscross the planet I realize there are so many people who are behaving like victims and they are so stuck in victimhood but they recite their excuses and the victim stories so often they don’t know that they’re not seeing reality, they’re seeing life or reality through a lens of them being a victim.”

“Our perception is what drives our performance and our beliefs are what drive our behaviors.”

No1: “The victim has a mindset of can’t and the leader has a mindset of can.”

“Your behavior highlights your beliefs.”

“Leaders have a psychology of possibility. It’s all about can, their whole belief, their whole tone, their whole way of being is I can do this for you customer, I can get this dream done, I can bring my best game, I can live an epic life.”

“Where are you stuck in a mindset of can’t? Which is how victims operate, and how can you leap to the psychology of possibility?”

No2: “Victims are busy being busy. So they’re going to come up with all these reasons why they can’t do world class work, why they’re not in great health, why they don’t have a great family life, and why they’re are not having an impact on the world.”

“When you watch a victim in action, they’re really busy being busy, they’re always doing meetings, they’re always talking, always moving, but please don’t confuse movement with productivity. There’s a big difference between busyness and impact.”

“Busy doesn’t mean you’re being productive.”

“The victim is busy, whereas the leader is productive.”

“Ask yourself how can I actually shift to being monomaniacally focused on the few things that would make me productive.”

No3: “The victim is really distracted. The victim loves entertainment. The leader loves education. The victim loves leisure. The leader loves learning. The victim is really distracted.”

“An addiction to distraction is the death of creative production.”

“Most people are unbelievably addicted to distraction, checking their phones, browsing the internet and it just goes on and on. And they are not focused.”

“The leader understands minimalism, the leader understands the essence of genius is simplicity, so the leader builds their life around the big5/vital few.”

“Become really, really, really good at just a few things and you will rise to world-class in the work that you do.”

No4: “The victim makes excuses, whereas the leader delivers results. If you recite your excuses long enough you actually hypnotize yourself to believe that your excuses are real.”

“Where in your work life, where in your personal life, where in your health life, where in your spiritual life are you making excuses? And where have you recited those excuses so many times you’ve actually seduced yourself into thinking they are true?”

“You can tell a victim a mile away, they’re all about excuses. They are so frightened because underneath every excuse lives a fear.”

“You have a choice every day when you walk out into the world, you can make excuses or you can deliver results, you can’t do both.”

“Have you fallen for your excuses. Let go of your excuses today because they are costing you your fortune and they are costing you your ideals and they are costing you your gifts being presented to the world.”

“The world needs more heroes than ever before why wait for them when you have it in you to become one of them.”

No5: “The victim is a taker, whereas the leader is a giver. There are a lot of people who are stuck in scarcity, and that’s another hallmark of the victim, it’s scarce. They’re always thinking about competition, their ego is screaming so loudly that their genius cannot be presented to the world.”

“The victim is a taker. Victims give little value to their company, little value to their customers, and little value to the marketplace, but hope to get an abundance of money or prestige as possible. And that’s a recipe for failure.”

“The leader is a giver. The leader understands that the marketplace rewards value delivery. If you want to make more money, give more value. If you want to achieve more respect in your marketplace, help more people. And it’s a fundamental shift from the taker which is all about scarcity to the giver or leader, which is all about generosity.”

“Give. Ask yourself this question every morning, how can I deliver as much value to as many people as possible?”

“The victim is so caught up in their victim story that they can not see it’s their own behaviour creating the results of their lives.”

“Life doesn’t give you what you want, life gives you what you earn.”

“The victim is so good at blaming, blaming their boss, blaming the economy, blaming their past, blaming their parents, they don’t have the absolute personal responsibility to look in the mirror and say, I have the life not that I want, but the life that I have created.”

“Where can you recreate you life so that you can build a better life.”

“Turn off the TV and forget about relentless entertainment. To have what very few have, you’ve got to do what very few people do.”

“We want to do iconic things in the world but we also want an easy life.”

“You can’t have a world class life and do the things that victims do. That just doesn’t make any sense.”

“It’s dangerous to leave your comfort zone but that’s where all your treasures live.”

“Stop lying to yourself  and develop an intimacy with your excuses to identify what you are not doing. Take a good hard look at where you’re making excuses. We grow up the day we shift from making excuses to taking personal responsibility for the way our lives look.”

“Execute. The job of a leader is less talk, more do. To translate your ideals into execution.”

“There’s a lot of talkers in the world. They don’t execute.”

“Don’t tell us what you’re going to do, show us what you’ve done.”

“If you practice executing long enough you’re going to be world-class at execution. But if you practice talking and not doing, that is what you will be world-class at talking.”

“Where you’re winning in life reflects what you’ve been practising.”

“Go to sleep earlier. Early to bed, early to rise is a very wise idea. Go to sleep a little earlier and get up at 5am.”

“As you begin your day, so you craft your life.”

“Leaders get fresh air, it creates a pharmacy of mastery, your mindset gets elevated.”

“Detox the negativity of your life, whether it be news, toxic people, toxic environments, and toxic influences, because your environments do shape your psychology.”

“Install a mentality of world-class. You’ve got to clean out your limiting beliefs and your psychological sabotage.”

“Mindset along with heartset, healthset, and soulset is needed to be world-class.”

“Do the work required internally, the deep architectural, archaeological digging so that your ego and your selfishness and your weaker nature starts to become less noisy and your true nature, that interior hero, not the victim but the leader starts to dominate your interior life.”

“Interior empires precede exterior empires.”

“Live for a cause that’s larger than yourself. Know your mighty mission.”

“Real leadership is about who you’re becoming and how many people you’re helping.”

“It doesn’t matter what happened in your past, you’ve got a brilliant future ahead of you if you make the right choices. Shift from being a victim to being a leader.”

“You still have it in you to make tomorrow, this year and the rest of your life pure art.”
