(351) – AMEN!

“Refuse to complain. Complaining is just a way of not taking responsibility, justifying doing nothing and programming yourself to fail. Complaining creates the illusion that you have done something. Instead, pour your energy into improving your situation. When you find ways to be productive and maintain a sense of optimism, you demonstrate that you are in control of your own life.

Complainers focus on what has happened, giving up their power. Winners focus on making things happen and using their power to find solutions to their challenges. You were born to create something magnificent with your life!! Solution-based thinking gives you that power. You have something special. You have GREATNESS within you!!” – Les Brown

  1. I don’t think I’m going to be able to agree completely with this one. A certain amount of complaining can be productive. Consider the old adage, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” If we don’t complain, those who might have the ability or power to rectify a problem will naturally assume that everyone is content and nothing is wrong. A well timed and worded complaint can get the creative juices flowing and change intolerable situations.

  2. “A well-timed and worded complaint” can be helpful but not the way people here use to complain or express the reasons behind their frustration. I think we then have two kinds of complaints, positive and negative but the mind usually is inclined to the negative one which is meant in the words above, I believe. Plus, we can complain once or twice but it can’t be a particular trait of our personality and character. I have a friend who either complains or says nothing, and that is annoying to say the least.

    Thank you Ol’ Big Jim for reminding me of that saying “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” I always like to use such powerful phrases in my speeches. 🙂 🙂
