6. No More Victim Mentality

Do you feel that you’re a victim? Now it is possible that you are, but accepting that label, without some reflection, may be doing you more harm than good.

Victims generally feel that something bad has happened to them and they, themselves, are in no way responsible for it. Now, authentic victims certainly do exist – let’s be perfectly clear on that. Hurricanes, tornados, droughts, earthquakes, and tidal waves have causes far beyond our ability to stop them. However, in a book called, “A Nation of Victims,” Charles Sykes pointed out that far too many of us have grown adept at finding someone else to blame for our problems and ignoring our own personal responsibility for them.

When you give up accountability for any aspect of your life, you also give up control. When you give up control, you’re basically saying, “There’s nothing I can do about it. There is no hope of improvement.” Nothing will change, because you won’t be doing anything to create change. And when others look at you, what kind of example are you setting for the young people in your life?

You see, the mindset of a victim is one of powerlessness, and with a mindset like that, you get used to behaving like a victim. It’s a vicious cycle that can turn into a downward spiral, if you’re not careful.

So, is Mr. Sykes’ assertion correct? Have people come to define themselves, not so much by shared culture, but by their status as victims? Have we – without thinking it through – given up our personal power to exercise control over our thoughts and feelings, over the decisions we make, as well as our control over how we react to what happens to us?

There is a good chance that there’s more than a little truth in this assertion. A stroll through the headline news of the last few years would seem to confirm it. However, if we take more accountability for our own actions, then we also take control over our own lives. And when we take control, we are more willing to stand by the decisions we make – and can say good-bye to the victim mentality. ~The Pacific Institute


7. Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation Launches Annual Campaign

Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation is launching its annual campaign this month to ensure everyone in the Mid-Columbia region has access to quality educational programs and resources.

Every day, CGCC and CGCC Foundation work to support the community members who need it most by providing education and training leading to productive careers.

“CGCC is a well-recognized institution, but there’s more to the college than many people may think,” notes Stephanie Hoppe, director of the college foundation. “The college is more than an education institution. It is a place where diverse people and groups can convene,” she explained.

CGCC Foundation’s purpose is to advance and promote the interests and development of the college, its students, and communities which the college serves.

CGCC Foundation hopes to raise $200,000 this year. Charitable gifts from CGCC Foundation donors help provide financial assistance for community members to pursue their higher education. In addition to awarding approximately $135,000 in general, nursing, and electro-mechanical technology scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year to CGCC students, donations to the foundation this past year provided emergency loans to students in crisis, helped students acquire better reading and writing skills, supported student success initiatives, and helped grow the foundation’s endowment.

“One hundred percent of donations within the local community having a direct impact on residents right in your own neighborhood,” Hoppe added. “When you give to CGCC Foundation, you strengthen your community through education.”

The annual campaign of CGCC Foundation is under way now. To learn more about how you can support the foundation’s cause, please contact Stephanie Hoppe, CGCC Foundation director, at (541) 506-6113, shoppe@cgcc.edu, or visit www.cgccfoundation.org
