What are you complaining about today?
Is it the same thing you complained about yesterday?
Is it the same thing you complained about the day before yesterday?
If you find yourself complaining about the same thing every day, then make a change.
[frame_center src=”” href=””]Stop complaining. Start changing.[/frame_center]
If you don’t think you complain a lot. Start tracking it. Be aware of what you say.
You can also ask people around you for their feedback. You may be surprised with the response.
Some people think complaining is a way to commiserate with others. Is it really? Doesn’t it just build more negative energy?
Challenge yourself to stop complaining. Replace it by making a change.
If you complain about your job, start exploring other opportunities.
If you complain about your commute to work, start carpooling or house hunting.
If you complain about not having enough time, start taking things off your calendar.
Try it for a week and see what happens. I admit, it’s easier to complain instead of making a change. But challenge yourself to strive for action. Remove from your life the negative impact of complaining.
Let me know if you’ve accepted the challenge to stop complaining and start changing.
