Two Problems With Whining

Whining

For years I've reminded my girls that you can always choose your attitude.

Years ago I came across a blog that mentioned two problems with whining. I love this! See what you think…

TWO PROBLEMS WITH WHINING (see original post from Seth Godin HERE)

The first is that it doesn't work. You can whine about the government or your friends or your job or your family, but nothing will happen except that you'll waste time.

Worse… far worse… is that whining is a reverse placebo. When you get good at whining, you start noticing evidence that makes your whining more true. So you amplify that and immerse yourself in it, thus creating more evidence, more stuff worth complaining about.

If you spent the same time prattling on about how optimistic you are, you'd work hard to make that true…
