Complaining doesn't do any good

Complaining doesn't do any good

I used to complain a lot - it could be about the weather, the traffic, the people on the train and even the coffee from my favorite café. When I think back now, my mind was full of thoughts like:

Complaint, complaint and complaint. All these complaints and negative thoughts didn’t only create a very bad start of my day - it actually made my whole day a living hell.

The point here is- sometimes we focus too much on the negative side of things without knowing that every single negative event in your life actually comes with something positive. It’s like a package or buy 1 get 1 free. By changing your way to see things, you will suddenly notice life is full of beauty and opportunities. 

Next time when your train is delayed, don’t get stressed or frustrated, try to see it from another perspective- the train is late -so what? You will have more time to listen to your favorite podcast or read the book you never have the time to read. The train will come relax!

The best way to stop the chain reaction of the negativity is to immediately tell yourself to stop and start thinking about the positive side of the seemingly negative event. In the above example, what I could have done is thinking about the good of Stockholm. The underground is less crowded, the city is less noisy and it has really fresh air - thanks to the trees!
