Obstacle 18: Complaining

“Gratitude is riches. Complaining is poverty. Instead of complaining about what is wrong, be grateful for what is right.” ~Unknown

Complaining clogs the soul.  The quote written above could have been offered by you or me or anyone else wise enough to know to be grateful, even in the storms of obstacles, tests and difficulties.

Re-use the energy that is expended when complaining to focus on the positive contributions that you make or that others make. It may be habitual for you to complain and find fault, but re-direct that habit with a new habit of gratitude by looking for options so that your success is not sabotaged by your own negativity.

Examine your mindset. Examine your attitude.  Look closely, caustic comments are often generated by fear. Address it (go back to the fear elimination exercise at the front of the book on page 2). Look deep within yourself to find its root and pluck it out.

Find your contentment. Seek what makes you happy inside and spend more time at those focus points. You will find less to complain about.

Be grateful, not hateful.

Opportunity Step:  Smile all day long. Spread cheer today.
