For a long time, when I didn’t get my way, I immediately began to complain. Okay, that makes me sound pretty lame, but that used to be my truth.
My life changed when a mentor of mine told me that when I complain, it’s like I am ripping gaping hole in my life. Out of that hole goes the good things that I have – opportunities, relationships, and support. “Instead,” he told me. “If you want to change something, stand up, take responsibility, and act.”
His words are a constant reminder. Even though I am not complaint free all of the time, I act more than I complain – and for me that’s a great start.
Enjoy your day,
