In this episode, we explore the victim mindset. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of complaining about our circumstances. Many of our colleagues jump in and fan the flames of discontent.
[This topic was first addressed in Physicians: Stop Complaining and Start Leading in July 2017 – VPE].
But when we find ourselves wallowing in victimhood, we ought to shift our perspective and make a commitment to lead instead.
First – A Physician Podcast Review
This week I want to highlight the White Coat Investor Podcast. Presented by Dr. Jim Dahle, the podcast is a spin-off of the longstanding, ground-breaking blog of the same name.
The podcast was started in January 2017. It presents much of the same high-value, no-nonsense information to help physicians avoid financial blunders and become stewards of their own finances.
To be a bit more specific, according to the notes introducing the podcast, it is intended to:
- Help high-income professionals (particularly those who wear the white coat) get a fair shake on Wall Street;
- Fulfill [Jim Dahle’s] entrepreneurial spirit (i.e. build something cool and make a few bucks doing it);
- Connect high income professionals who need professional financial help with the good guys in the financial services industry.
