Develop a plan

Identify what’s making you feel discouraged. Try to be specific. 

And once that is done, make a plan. Write out what you can do to turn around your bad mood.

Associate with winners

The greatest investment for the worrywart is to find a cell of positive-minded, successful people.

Because we tend to think like the people we hang around.

Speak positive words

We tend to believe what we say. And we can have a more positive outlook by noticing the good, anticipating a positive outcome and speaking it out loud.

A few verbal affirmations throughout the day will go a long way toward lifting your spirits.

Pointless Criticism

In the context of poor communication, criticizing is when you knock someone down for the wrong reasons: to hurt someone, to vent your frustrations or to boost your ego.

Blaming

When you blame someone, you take any responsibility off of yourself and put it on them. 

It’s understandable that you want to express your dissatisfaction with something. But sometimes you need to express it in order to find a solution, not to point singers.

Complaining is exhausting because it puts pressure on the other person. 

Complaining often results in the other person feeling as if they should somehow “fix” the problem or else just get away from the complaining.
