It is a mindset and it is a decision.
Yes, tough things happen in life. We lose friends, loved ones, we get sick, horrible things happen every day in different parts of the world.
I don’t want to be disrespectful to people that have really suffered trauma, that are victims of any type of violence, that battle with mental health.
This blog post is not about them.
I see it in my daily adventures (a fancy word for work and life 🙂 ) that there are people who choose to be negative and others who choose to not be negative.
Being negative will not help you move on in life.
Yes, it is ok to release some tension but we need to consider the final result. Will it help us?
I admit I used to complain a lot. I have put significant effort into reducing but and I have succeeded, but I’m not there yet.
Things are not perfect, not at work, not at home, not in society. Life is not perfect.
I changed my mindset a few years ago and I see myself being more motivated and inspired.
Because, what’s the alternative? If I complain will I change something?
How do I change things? How do I change my life, my fate? I don’t believe in any supernatural kind of destiny or fate, I believe we make our own path in life.
And I am doing that every day. I’m positive, I try to fight the urge to complain and instead I put my energy and focus on things that matter, that can make a difference, that can bring some results.
I encourage you to do the same 🙂
And go watch some Gary Vee. He is one of the main reasons of my mindset shift, aka positivity and ambition.
