Most often the only thing that’s wrong about you is the belief that something is wrong with you. Most people complain about being the unluckiest person living on this planet.
Let me walk you through some stats –
– More than 3 billion people live in extreme poverty; they live on less than $2.50 a day.
– 4 billion people do not have access to an Internet connection; the fact that you are using the internet to read this article puts you in the privileged group.
– 805 million people do not have enough food to eat, yet you take breakfast, lunch, and dinner for granted.
– 1.6 billion people live without electricity. And you still complain about your life?
What’s the Most Common Reason for Complaining?
– When we are unable to achieve our goals, or we don’t have a clear purpose.
It is our nature to want better things and never be satisfied even after reaching the pinnacle.
Some people complain about the weather not being right today. Why can’t you dress according to the weather?
Some people complain about not being rich enough, why don’t you feel content about having food on the table and roof at the top? You can buy luxury cars, date hot chicks or can earn million dollars. But there will always be some things that you can’t control in life, no matter how wealthy or healthy you are.
Getting stuck in traffic, losing a loved one, someone walking out of your life, not getting a promotion due to that grouchy boss, or not getting your lucky break. These are the examples of some of the things you can’t control. Total acceptance and responsibility is the key.
Complainers are those who have never tasted the real feeling of accountability and defeat. It’s easy to blame others, but it takes courage to take responsibility for all the errors.
In life, first, you lose then you learn. It’s not like everything is going to fall into place in the first attempt. So stop complaining if things don’t work out the way you thought. In today’s world failure is taken in the wrong way but it’s a blessing in disguise.

– Lionel Messi
Messi was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency at the age of 11 ever wondered what would be the scenario if he would have complained.
Messi accepted the way he was, and rest is History.
Coca-Cola sold 25 bottles in the first year. They didn’t complain, nor they gave up.
In life, the people who don’t complain are the happiest people.
You’re not going to have everything in life even if you work 24×7. If you run after money, you won’t have enough time for your family. If you buy yourself a luxury car but do not have a loved one by your side, then you are a loser.
Sometimes you can have everything (materialistically) yet have nothing.
How to Stop Complaining
Set a goal. The goal should be personal, and you should feel energized. Leave everything for next six months specially NetFlix/Youtube and work your ass off. Just try for one time and see you won’t complain about anything.
The job you have, the people you have and the lifestyle you have I promise you, someone, is just wishing the life you have.
Don’t take this life for granted. Stop complaining!
