If they’d do something about the parking on campus
Copy and paste the ten Victim statements that follow into the box below.VICTIM LANGUAGE1. If they’d do something about the parking on campus, I wouldn’t be late so often.2. I’m failing my online class because the site is impossible to navigate.3. I’m too shy to ask questions in class even when I’m confused.4. She’s a lousy instructor. That’s why I failed the first test.5. I hate group projects because people are lazy and I always end up doing most of the work.6. I wish I could write better, but I just can’t.7. My friend got me so angry that I can’t even study for the exam.8. I’ll try to do my best this semester.9. The financial aid form is too complicated to fill out.10. I work nights so I didn’t have time to do the assignment.Then, in the box, translate the Victim statements into the words of a Creator. For instance, consider the Victim language “Going to the tutoring center is no help. There aren’t enough tutors.” You might translate this into “I’ve been going to the tutoring center right after lunch when it’s really busy. I’ll start going in the morning to see if more tutors are available then.”The two keys to Creator language are taking ownership of a problem and taking positive actions to solve it: ownership and a plan.When you respond as if you are responsible for a bad situation, then you are empowered to do something about it (unlike Victims, who must wait for someone else to solve their problems).
