Stop Complaining

 

Sometimes we complain without realizing we are doing so. It can be something as simple as commenting on the weather conditions outside to a passerby.

As challenging as it may be to process, you chose the life that you have right now, directly or indirectly. It’s easy to blame others for your problems. Unfortunately, that doesn’t solve the problem.

Where you are today is a direct result of a decision you have or have not made. If you are unwilling to change, then there is no need to complain. In other words, stop criticizing your circumstances and change your conditions.

Lead By Example

You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. Leading by example earns you the right to be heard because your actions reinforce what you speak.

Those closest to you often emulate what you do, so if you desire for someone to behave a certain way, don’t be the double standard.

Francis Bacon once remarked, “He that gives good advice builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example, builds with both; but he that gives good admonition and bad example, builds with one hand and pulls down the other.”
