Download: Character Confessions
The world isn’t concerned with making you happy.
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.
When we complain about things or “vent” to others about life it’s annoying to them most of the time.
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 themselves.
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 how they perceive the world.
Winners don’t complain the rules of the game are unfair.
Winners learn the rules of the game and practice playing until they can beat anyone else.
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.
Do you want to be remembered as a hero or do you want to be forgotten as a zero?
We all begin life as a nobody. The goal is to become somebody.
