It’s easy to sit and complain about situations. It’s easy to down the efforts of others. It’s easy to say that we would do things differently if we had a chance. It’s easy to point out discrepancies, wrongs and errors. Anybody can do these things any day of the week. However, it’s more challenging to look at a situation that you find disturbing and get involved. To get involved may mean you have to get your hands dirty. To get involved may mean you have to make sacrifices. To get involved may mean you may have to allow others into your world.
Think about the last time you complained about a situation that affected humanity. Did you complain because the poor didn’t have much to eat? Did you complain because you felt those in authority were out of touch with reality? Did you complain because the educational system was not efficient? Did you complain because you saw discrimination, or you saw people’s rights being violated? After your complaint, what did you do? Did you go on about your business as if nothing matters, or did you take an action step (regardless how small) to rectify the problem?
Make an agreement today. If you refuse to do something about your complaints, then stop complaining. The only thing complaining does is add negativity into the atmosphere. So with every complaint, find something you can do to make things better. That way, you will be part of the solution instead of part of the problem.
