The power of words – I was sharing on yesterdays TLN Virtual Community Call about the difference between the word survivor and victor. People use the word survivor to describe things like cancer, rape, assault, abuse, other medical conditions etc. Look up the word survive and the word victory.

Survive means to exist, victory means to triumph over. Would you rather exist or triumph over your situation? I am a victor over many things. It was something that happened to me, not who I am. To survive it to me means I am simply existing now that it happened to me. Having victory means I can leave the trauma of those experiences behind and claim my life back.

Thoughts? Not in the community? It’s only $1 to check it out for 7 days.
