How many of you can identify a constant complainer in less than 5 seconds? Ready, Set, Go! Did you identify somebody? Is that person your significant other? if so, keep that part to yourself for the sake of your day. But seriously you know who I’m talking about, the person who complains about everything under the sun. “My boss yelled at me, my job sucks, I’m so tired I worked overtime today, the house is dirty, and did I mention my life sucks?” You get it right?
You can google 1001 different inspirational blogs that will tell you to appreciate what’s good in life and to not dwell on anything else. They will all tell you that things get better, you will have a good day mixed in there really soon. That is all probably true, but will it get you to stop complaining? We are all guilty of having a day when we are grumpy, irritable, and need to vent some things off of our chest. That is ok, it is healthy. We all need to vent, but there is a massive difference between the occasional venter and the constant complainer.
So what am I getting at? Here is the deal. Stop being a wimpy butt, also known as a sissy la-la. Yup, i said it. Fact, there are going to be days when your boss yells at you, or you just have a terrible day at work. Maybe you don’t land that big sale, the customer goes to your competitor, who knows. And once something goes wrong, it ALL goes wrong. The snowball effect has hit you like a ton of bad luck. If you did’t have bad luck you wouldn’t have any luck at all! Poor thing.
I have been around the block, and I am sure anyone will agree with me, failure makes you better as long as you handle it in the correct way. Here are a couple options:
#1 You can continue to mope around all that you want. Continue to be a wimpy butt, sissy la-la and let your boss, co-worker or whomever get the best of you! (Clue: This is the WRONG CHOICE) The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows! See video below. It is a must watch
#2 Learn from it. Get tough! Be stronger than you ever thought you could be. Dry your eye, wipe those tears away, and take some initiative to ensure that you succeed the next time. Do NOT focus on what went wrong, focus on what you are going to do to make it better.
Sit down and think about this…
Where has all of your complaining got you? Anywhere? Put all of that time and energy into being proactive, the possibilities for you are endless.
As I tell all of my clients, “Challenge yourself to be GREAT!” If you do not know how or need help on getting yourself focused on what you are going to do to make it better call us. We have business and life coaches that are here to guide you down the right path. Our goal is for you to be the best that you can be.

“It isn’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you get hit and keep moving forward!” Those words are so powerful!
