‘If you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.’
Anthony J. D’Angelo

We all like a good whinge from time to time but if you often find yourself complaining, maybe it has become a habit. Sometimes we complain without even realizing it, but rarely is it ever helpful.

It’s easier to complain instead of fixing a problem, like quitting a job or having a talk with someone. I find that when you put your mind toward a more positive outlook and force yourself to end complaining, it is possible!

A common mistake chronic complainer’s make is to self-identify with the negative thoughts running their minds. Enlist the help of a cheerful friend to stop you when you complain and help you to see the positive in the situation. Change starts when you begin to accept and embrace more and more responsibility for your life.

If something is bothering you, either fix it or accept that nothing can be done right now, so why complain? Complaining is a passive activity. Change that complaining into action to solve the problem or simple accept it and give your mind something else to focus on.

Assuming total responsibility for your life. The real solution to complaining is taking responsibility. If I don’t like my present circumstances, I must end them and make changes.

In the other hand, stop for a minute and think of the good in your life. Take responsibility for this. The good stuff didn’t  just happen to you. You created it!

“Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.”
Randy Pausch,
