7 Ways to Stop Whining and Start Winning

7 Ways to Stop Whining and Start Winning

Winners possess a distinctive optimistic attitude towards life which whiners don’t have.                            

I.K. Otchere-Asamoah

What are you complaining about? Don’t dwell on it. Find out what you can do about it and emerge as a winner instead of a whiner: 

1.      Change it if you can: Do not complain about a situation you do not like. Can you change it? Otherwise learn to live with it.  Do the best you can with what you have and behave cheerfully.

2.      Focus on the positive: Instead of focusing on things negatively, look at the bright side and you will find that things are not as bad as you have envisaged.

3.      Look for solutions: Have a problem? Forget about the why-me attitude.  Be resourceful, find a way out and move on.  

4.    Be responsible: When things do not turn out as expected, do not look for excuses, blame others or circumstances. Think of a different way to do it right and take immediate action.  

5.      Focus on the present: Whiners like to talk about the past and complain loudly about it. The best thing to do is to leave the past behind you, start afresh and work enthusiastically towards your goals.  

6.    Be Proactive: Do not wait and expect the best to happen to you. It won’t. Know what you want and go after your dreams. Plan for it, get organized, do the daily tasks and enjoy what you do because the journey is more important than the destination.    

7.      Accept failure gracefully: Accept failures as a learning process. It is one way to make progress and grow. Do not look at yourself as a victim and just wallow in self pity, response positively to defeats and move on much wiser than before.

Winners will never whine and whiners will never win. In life, you have a choice; be a winner instead of a whiner.
