Stop complaining

Complaining is verbal procrastination. It doesn’t get the job done. It actually prevents you from taking action and you only see the wrongs in situations. Constant complaining can be linked to negative thoughts.

These negative thoughts can be as a result of viewing things worse than they really are. With time, it negatively alters your ability to find hope and believe in the possibility of things, which kills your creativity and innovation.

No matter how bad a situation is, always be thankful and look for the positives in every situation you find yourself. If there is a solution you can offer in resolving a challenge you face, provide it. This action will help you reduce your rate of complaining.

Warren buffet once said “look for a job that you will take if you didn’t need a job”. We as humans are fulfilment beings. From the moment you become self-aware of your existence, you begin to enquire within yourself and from your surrounding why you are alive.

Why did you exist in the first place? This pushes you to find something in life for which you can pursue, something that will justify you existence.

It is for this reason you don’t just do anything just because it gives you some bucks. Go out and do something you are passionate about; something that can bring you fulfilment. It’s not that easy when you go in search of who you want to be. It takes time. You might not find it the first time but don’t give up finding it.
