Stop Complaining & See What Happens To Your Life

Home Builder with Long Island Cash Home Buyer


1. Friendship is not about who you spend the most time with, it's about who you have the best time with.



2. Focus on what matters and let go of what doesn't.



3. Don't believe everything you think.


4. Be careful with your words, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten. 


5. Classy is when you have a lot to say, but you choose to remain silent in front of the idiots.


6. One day you will just be a memory to some people. Do your best to be a good one.


7. Seek respect, not attention it lasts longer.


8. Instead of wiping away your tears, wipe away the people that made you cry.


9. There will always be someone who can't see your worth, don't let it be you. 


10. Go 24 hours without complaining. (Not even once) Then watch how your life starts changing!!!

Hi Beth and Richard Witt - This is a post I hope all will heed.  I recently let go of a group of people I could not be around anymore and I feel 1000% better for doing so. Now I can help others with more clarity.

Great post to read this morning. Complaining creates negative energy for yourself and everyone around. There's an art to making a statement without it being a complaint.

Kathy Streib  Thank you for your kind words,  I always kept this posted in the office and when an agent would come in and start to complain I would tell them to go read it and then to stop vomiting on me... for sure that got my message and the vomiting stopped... I was the full-time Coach for over 100 women and you know how we love to complain, but I always loved them and always enjoyed helping them out... Happy Day

I join with those who can't choose a favorite, although I really love #3. We do sometimes need to get out of our own way.

I'm trying to be positive and real during COVID-19. Lots of negative people online. I had to silence myself today as this quote came to mind from your post:

"Classy is when you have a lot to say, but you choose to remain silent in front of the idiots."
