Just Because You Are A Negative Whiner Today, Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Change!

Alright so I just told you yesterday that if you encounter someone who is always complaining or moaning you need to realize they are simply a complainer and moaner so you shouldn’t waste your time asking why…

And now I am telling you just because you are a negative whiner today, doesn’t mean you can’t change!

What’s the deal? Ha ha!

Well there is one huge difference. If you find yourself dealing with a negative whiner you have absolutely no control over that person, and attempting to change them is absolutely impossible. The only person on the face of the planet we have any power to change is ourselves.

If you can find it within yourself to absolutely believe that the only person stopping your from changing, is yourself … You should feel empowered!

I remember about five or six years ago when I was driving down the highway here in Grand Rapids and saw a billboard that absolutely caught my attention. The billboard had the phrase, “Reinvent U” on it and was a campaign being run by a local college.

I was immediately intrigued by the saying and immediately started to conjure up in my mind what an incredible course this might be and how awesome the possibilities might be.

During that stage of my life I wasn’t completely happy with the way things were going. I didn’t believe I was doing everything possible to get to the place in life I wanted to be, and I was finding it very difficult to find the motivation to do anything differently to create better results.

That isn’t a very good place to be. I believe many people refer to it as “being stuck in a rut.” I would better explain it as being stuck in a very dark place where it seems impossible to see your way to a brighter place.

This billboard helped clear things up for me IMMENSELY!

These two words (or the word and letter) sent me off on a different thought process and helped me realize the only thing stopping me from getting on a path to achieving better results in my life was the actions I was taking.

I finally realized just because I was stuck in the pattern of procrastinating, not focusing, and wasting time didn’t mean I was required to always be that person. I could IMMEDIATELY change my pattern and therefore reinvent myself!

WOW … Talk about feeling refreshed and completely improving your perspective on life! I felt completely energized!

We’re all forced to make choices every single day, and based on those choices, and the actions we repeat over and over, we tend to become associated with people who make those same choices and take the same actions.

The beautiful thing is, even if you are a person who always finds the negative in everything, and if you are constantly whining about how difficult you have it … You are only ONE SMALL decision away from reinventing yourself by changing your thought process and the actions you take every single day.

Conversely, if you are a person that has a ton of positive things happening in your life and you’ve felt as though you’ve arrived … You can still get better!

Isn’t life a wonderful thing? :)

Let me know if you’ve ever come to a similar point in your life where you modified your actions, even slightly, and noticed a significant difference. I am sure almost everyone has, it may just take a little time to recall those moments.
