“Now, 10 years later, the person who talked and complained is still talking and complaining and still remains in the same position. The person who took the initiative and found solutions has been promoted several times.”
Catherine Pulsifer, from How Valuable Are You?
What are you best known for, complaining all the time or getting the job done? People to me are grouped in these two categories and I dont deal to much with complainers. Complainers tend to look down on every situation and never do anything about it. They complain about gaining weight, not having money or any other thing that they lack. To me those types of people will not get very far in life because they don’t try to solve what ever the issue or thing that they are complaining about. Complainers tend to after years never get anywhere in life and they let the situations take over their life. Most have yet to realize that complaining and doing nothing will only make things worse. Now lets take a look at the other type of person, the problem solver.
Taking care of business type of person is one who sees the problem and looks for a solution. For instance they see they have gained weight so they begin to exercise and make better eating choices. These types of people don’t sit and sulk about not having money they go out and find ways to make money. They seek to solve their problems and not complain. Problem solving will always take you further in life than complaining. Problem solving will make you a much better person and will allow you to live the life you deserve without any excuses. For you to be able to pursue your dreams you must get out of the mindset of complaining and you must get up and do something! If you are unhappy about your situation find a way to get out! Remember there is always a way out of any situations but you must start somewhere. Creating the life you deserve starts with you!
