Catch Yourself Complaining

Dec 30, 2012

complainHave you ever taken a step back to listen to yourself in conversation? Perhaps a considerable percentage of it revolves around complaints. While we may develop a connection with others who are complaining about the same thing, why not turn that energy into something positive?

Try to catch yourself when you are about to complain about a headache, the rain, your boss, your family… and STOP. Immediately try to think of something that IS going the right way for you.

Developing this practice will make a world of difference, as you will be a more positive person and people will gravitate toward you.

It also helps to cultivate your perseverance by moving forward in the face of a challenge, whether it’s a negative boss or a personal situation. Don’t let these things put a damper on your attitude or performance.
