The world isn’t concerned at all with making you happy. As much as it is hard to admit, the world really doesn’t give a shit about you. We fight against it, but most of us are well aware of this fact.
How you approach the world is usually a sign of your character. If things are not going your way, no amount of harsh force, complaining, pleading, blaming or asking “why” will make a difference.
Most of the time, when we complain about things or “vent” to others about life, it’s annoying to them. Don’t be foolish. Most people don’t give a shit about you anyway, at least not really.
When we complain and whine, all we normally end up doing is darkening our own mood and being an annoyance to others around us who are just trying to focus on their own issues.
The more we whine and criticize things, the more unpleasant and small we start to become; we begin to sound like tiny compulsive narcissists. We become magnets of toxicity.
It takes just as much effort to be happy about the positive in your life as it does to be angry. It takes just as much energy to smile and shrug small annoyances off as it does to stay upset.
The difference that separates the poor from the rich and the average from the great is really just how they perceive the world and how they play the different games of life.
Winners don’t complain the rules of the game are unfair. They learn the rules and practice playing until they can best anyone else. They treat life like their own special olympics.
You got a personal story? Then do something about it. Did life hand you a raw deal? Overcome it and do something about it. Unhappy with your bank account? Do something about it.
We all begin life as a nobody. The goal is to create somebody worthy of life.
Instead of complaining about negative things today, I am going to make more of an effort to be positive – to be a champion at my own game. Before complaining about something, I am going to ask myself “is this actually something worthy of spreading toxic energy”?
I catch myself complaining all of the time, but it’s not enough. I need to be more conscious of how I am perceiving the world to make sure I become the right character in life’s game.
The right character has a tendency to bring growth and expand.
It’s time to get my character right. I only get one life to play the role.
