10 days to Thrive – No Complaining – Day THREE
Today’s a short one! It’s simple. Today is day three and we challenge you NOT to complain.
Life is not perfect. It never has been and never will be. This is not bad news. In fact, once we begin to embrace this reality, we welcome a great number of possibilities . Life is never perfect. We know this to be true.
Why then, do we continue to complain about its imperfections?
We complain about the weather, the traffic, our family. We complain about tight clothing, misplaced keys, late air planes, and the price of oil! We complain about our jobs or our lack of jobs. We complain about nosy neighbours, crying babies, ungrateful teenagers, and lazy family members. We have become a society too quick to complain.
Complaining is almost never a positive reaction to our circumstance .
Complaining fosters a negative attitude, negatively impacts those around us, doesn’t change our circumstance,highly unattractive and often leaves us as victim mode.
So lets try not complain about the usual things :
About the weather
About your neighbours
About your family
About your boss
About your weight
About your shopping list
About this challenge!
Nothing, nada, rien du tout, zilch!
Instead, turn your attention to what’s good about them.
