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?
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.
