Are You Grateful or A Constant Complainer?
Why is it so hard for us to be grateful as human beings? Why is it so easy for us to complain about every little thing that we don't have? Because we see other people that have it? What if we didn't know they had it or we didn't see it, would we still complain about it?
These are questions I often think about when I am meditating and going through personal development. I know more and have watched people do more complaining than thanking thorughout my life. And gratitude is becoming a taboo word as time goes on. Even the little courtesies of saying "thank you" when getting a gift or receiving help makes people feel it is more a forced obligation than a show of appreciation.
Why is that?
Maybe it is Entitlement. Maybe it is Envy or Jealousy. No matter what it is, it takes a toll on you mentally and physically. Complaining about what you don't have or what you haven't accomplished breeds an air of negativity around you. This in turn, causes you to feel stressed and overwhelmed, which leads to nothing but mental and physical deterioration.
Being Grateful Is Not A Responsibility, It's A Mindset
Answer this question for yourself. What has complaining ever done for you? Where has it taken you? Maybe, when you were a toddler or adolescent, you could throw a temper tantrum and get what you want. But those days of being a spoiled brat are over. You are an adult with your own responsibilities, your own priorities. And no one is going to give you what you want or get you where you want to go, except YOU.
So STOP complaining and START doing...
Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart
Be grateful for what you have, the levels you have reached, the accomplishments you have achieved; big or small. Give thanks with a grateful heart, because there are millions worse off then you. The fact that you have a phone, tablet, or computer, with an internet connection that is allowing you to read this, is showing how grateful you should be.
Gratitude is not a feeling that can be forced and it shouldn't feel like it is a obligation on you. It is a mindset. Those who are ungrateful for what they have, their life and current state can learn to be grateful. With the right mindset training and habits of gratitude, you can reach new heights, in yourself, in your life, and in your work. You can learn to relieve that negative stress of the constant complaining. I have two suggestions:
- Get on our weekday "THINK AND GROW RICH" Mindest Training calls, every weekday morning at 9am
- Listen to the Inner Circle Audios whenever you like. They can be available to you 24/7, by going here.
Nobody wants to go through life complaining about what they don't have. That's misery. Instead of complaining, be grateful for what you do have and use it to do something that will get you to where you want to be.
