“You’ll find that life will be a lot easier and much more fun when you make the decision to drop your complaining. All it does is make you feel sorry for yourself — sad, angry, victimized, suspicious, and/or self-righteous. When you argue for your limitations, your thoughts and words merely get in your way and greatly interfere with your ability to create. With complaining out of the way, you’ll create the space for an explosion of creativity. All it takes is a simple decision: the decision to stop yourself from falling into the complaining habit. At first, it may be difficult. Don’t worry. You’ll quickly get used to the nicer feelings that come from a life without complaints.”

-Richard Carlson in “Don’t Worry, Make Money”
