As many reach the midterms, it is important to point out that as a professor, I’m not seeking class D victims, only student victors.

VICTIM: A victim is someone whose rights are violated, or they are injured, harmed, or killed as a result of a crime or event. Victims do not normally choose it, see it coming, or welcome it.

VICTOR: A Victor is someone who has met their challenge and won and defeated an adverse situation.

Someone with a victim mentality will say to himself, “Look what others have done to me.” On the other hand, someone with a victor mentality will overcome all obstacles.

Victims will point out that they can do nothing to improve their situation. Victors don't make excuses. They don't complain. They have ganas for the desire to win.
