Want to have a better year in 2013? A less stressful one? Take the amount you complained in 2012, and reduce it by 25%, starting today. Hell, reduce it by 50% even. Whatever you do, complain less, and contribute to solutions more.
Instead of complaining, be a part of the solution. Complaining accomplishes nothing.
So the next time you feel the urge to complain about a situation you find yourself in….stop and ask yourself the following question:
How can I solve, or assist in solving the problem I am about to complain about?
I’ve found that the most of the complaints I encounter are actually related to small, relatively insignificant things that can easily be solved by stepping back and looking at it from another angle. The problem solver angle 😉
Be a part of the solution!
