On Complaint

“Constant complaint is the poorest sort of pay for the comforts we enjoy” -Benjamin Franklin

Do you know someone who always seems to be complaining? About everything and anything?

Are you in a season where you find yourself complaining a lot? Even just internally?

🙋‍♀️Been there.

To shift this, consider these two questions:

1️⃣What is the lesson?

Maybe better preparation or implementing a new process to prevent whatever “the issue” was. Maybe it’s a lesson in communication; in saying no, or setting realistic expectations.

Not saying you will have the answer. However, by asking the question and discovering an issue or two, you can start to create awareness then reach out for guidance.

2️⃣What is there in this to be grateful for?

Maybe during that “crazy day” (where you felt overwhelmed & complained to the world) the newest person on the team had a great attitude – even though they didn’t have the skill set to really help out otherwise. They’ll build the skill and have a winning attitude.

That’s a huge win! Did you thank them?

Maybe it’s the barista at your favorite coffee shop having a laugh with you that morning. Do you recall? What was GOOD in the day?

When you have an attitude of #gratitude – magic happens.

I help people identify strengths and values - to create a vision in line with their purpose. Mindset tools and sessions to help with strategy whether its moving up the corporate ladder, honing in on your million ideas, gaining control of your fitness or health goals, or being that super parent that doesn't feel guilt over self care.

I credit my 20 years in corporate America developing teams with inspiring me to learn through various modalities how to be effective as an individual, then as a leader. I have helped individuals achieve great strides in their careers, confidence, and presentation where they were previously stagnant. All by sharing tools and mindset skills (or mindhacks as I call them) to achieve focused performance. Both professionally and personally. I help organizations and leaders in creating a culture to impact behavior for measurable success. My vision is to help others- individuals, leaders, and teams- gain confidence as they gain clarity in their goals, determine values, and create vision through deliberate actions. In addition to success coaching and confidence building, I assist leaders in presentation. From developing presence to executive speaking, a little tweak or addition can have a great impact. Honored to be of service.
