NEW HABITS Summer 2014: Day 17

If you have not, please read 

Day 17
WAYPOINTNo Complain Day
  • Does the weather stink? Don’t talk about it.
  • Was your commute frustrating? Let it go.
  • Do you have too much work? Just get it done and move on.
  • Can't go do what you want and have to work on the house or go grocery. It's okay, you got this. Think of how you will feel after!
  • If others complain to you, just listen politely and move on.  (The phrase “Sounds like you are frustrated” works for me.)

Today, we are going to practice to let these minor problems go. Focus your energy on what you can control. Use the soothing word technique to help you cope, if you need.
Make notes in your journal (optional).
I love this quote:
To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.
Eckhart Tolle
There is a strength in empowering yourself or choosing to let go. (See my other favorite 'complaining quote' below. 
HINT: We will do this one again!

Happy New Habits!
Much Love,

“Stop complaining and do something... Shut up! Rise up! Grow up! And show up! See you at the top!”
