Complaining won't get you far

Complaining won’t get you very far. 

In fact, it'll keep you from far more than you’d imagine. 

It’s not that being negative or focusing on the negative is annoying to those around, although it is. It’s that being negative, complaining and making excuses hurts your ability to perform, to get things done. 

When you’re in a negative mindset, you’re less responsive, less precise, and slower in almost every way.

Positivity, on the other hand, is linked to better performance across the board including greater speed and accuracy. 

You can’t afford to let negativity hold you back or keep you down. Too much is riding on it. 

The good news is that being positive is a learned behavior. You can do something about how you think, and what you allow yourself to say. 

You can choose a more positive attitude and tone. 

You can condition yourself not to complain. 

It will take time, but it’s worth the effort because your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, and your actions determine your outcome.
