STOP COMPLAINING…and Start *Problem-Solving* Instead

“Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but
unwilling to improve themselves. They therefore remain bound.”

~ James Allen

Stop complaining…and start problem solving instead, because people who often complain also tend to see themselves as VICTIMS, and thus remain confined to the circumstances they supposedly abhor.

If you live far from the nearest subway train (or major city), don’t whine about how much it sucks to reside in the neighborhood you currently do or how such a distance makes it difficult to network and become part of the action; make a plan to generate more income and move.

If you don’t like the way you look, don’t cry about the social stigma that comes along with being obese or criticize society for having unrealistic expectations of physical appearance; formulate an exercise routine or save up to see a dermatologist.

If you’re single and romantically confused about it, don’t see yourself as destined for loneliness or mire in hopeless futility about it; go out regularly and put yourself in a position to meet new people.

Be free of unwanted fear

All in all, be an action-oriented problem-solver, not a verbally-gifted politician or sociologist who merely campaigns and rallies around an issue while failing miserably to actual policies and solutions after the fact.

Conquer Yourself by refusing to complain…and start problem-solving instead. When an issue comes up for you, don’t play ‘helpless victim in need of a savior’ – strategically develop (and progressively execute) an intelligent, reasonable plan in order to dissolve and overcome it.

    Yes, and on that note let us make this day in which we proceed with an action plan to improve our conditions. Instead of whining on the sidelines, let your skills shine on the practice field (and add some news ones, as well). :-)
