“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.” — Maya Angelou
Melissa’s Words of Wisdom
If you think about it, within every complaint is a request. When someone is complaining, they are really just requesting change. They want things to be different. At that point, whether it’s yourself complaining or someone else, take a moment and look for the request. Identify if it’s something you can actually change and do something about and of course, if you can do something about it, then get moving! If it is out of your hands and it’s something you cannot necessarily change, then stop wasting your precious time and energy when you could be putting it to better use. Redirect your focus onto what you do have the control to change. Remember, nothing happens until you decide to take action! Leave a comment below about what your latest complaint is and how you can turn it into a request and get moving on it … if it’s within your control, of course! Happy Changing What You Can Change!
