"Don't complain about the snow on your neighbour's roof when
your own doorstep is unclean."
"We can choose to look forward to the day,
or we can choose to moan and complain. It's your choice!"
Catherine Pulsifer, Happiness and Perceptions
"Part of the complainant's psychic makeup is the need to be seen as someone of worth. This may at first appear
as non-sensical but think about it. If you are frustrated with aspects of your life, if you feel that you are being ignored,
if you feel that other people are getting attention and you are not, if you never seem to stand out compared to
your colleagues at work or in your own particular social group one way to establish a presence, to get noticed,
is to ramp up dialogue that draws attention to you."
Byron Pulsifer, Stop Complaining
"Complaining never attracts what you want; it perpetuates what you
do not want."
Will Bowen, A Complaint Free World
"Complaining lets a bully know that a victim is in the neighborhood."
Let's face it; it's much easier to complain about what's going wrong
in life than it is to focus on the things that are going right.
Jessica Jones, Love What You Have
Quote of The Day
How often have you been inspired to do something after you have
listened to a person complain? Learn to listen to the
complaint and then ask the question, so what are you going to do about it?
Rather than just listening to the grumbling and being pulled down yourself,
inspire the person by moving them beyond the complaint to the solution.
"Happily communicating our complaints to everyone except the people
who need to hear them most is profoundly
ineffective, yet all of us are guilty of the practice to some degree."
Guy Winch Ph.D., The Squeaky Wheel
"When people complain of life, it is almost always because
they have asked impossible things of it."
"Do we moan and complain, or do we get up from our padded chairs
and look beyond the issue and strive for the solution.
For each problem we face, we have the opportunity to make it better
or to resolve the issue, or to work toward a positive change."
"His book will make you be thankful for what you have,
rather than complaining about what you don't have."
About the book, Keep Climbing
"We can all complain, we can all moan, we can all build a negative
life based on our issues. What makes us able to reduce the size of our
challenges, however, is the option or ability to define the issue, develop
actions to help resolve the issues, or, at the very least, seek help from friends,
relatives, colleagues or professional organizations to give us guidance to move
through and beyond our problems."
"Excuses are only for those people who are unwilling to find the
solution, who find greater solace in the loudness of their complaints
rather than in the action they are taking to implement the actions that carry
them steadily forward to their achievement."
Bryon Pulsifer, My Excuse For My Excuse
"Despite information available to the contrary, it would seem that a
lot of people would rather complain and moan about what they don't have,
can't do, or wish they could have or do without exercising even one act that could start to turn their lives into a positive."
Bryon Pulsifer, How To Attract Positive Energy
"Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain."
Funny Quotes about Life
"No great man ever complains of want of opportunity."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are many negative consequences of complaining, including a
worse mood, a pessimistic atmosphere, worse performance, or an
inability to focus on more important things by being obsessed with things
you want or donít want.
Rita Chester, Complaining
The mind sees a world full of problems and complains. The heart sees
the world as it is and smiles.
Michael Hetherington, 108 Paths to Peace
