A lot of people are never going to get to where they want to be because they spend all of their time complaining about where they are.
“I’m so fat but I don’t want to train today because it is too hot.”
“I’m so skinny but I don’t want to squat today because it is too cold.”
“I’m so out of shape but I don’t want to work hard today, because I had a long day.”
My question to you is “Why in the blue sky did you show up just to complain?”
If you are serious about making big-time gains with your physique, your health, or even opening your own business, then you cannot become a chronic complainer. Complaining about where you are without taking action is one highest examples of fake hustle in the world.
Complainers are the ultimate example of people on this planet who are stuck on the treadmill going absolutely nowhere fast.
Complainers are losers. I used to be a complainer and a loser and I’ll even give you a few examples.
I would complain about why the basketball coach did not select me for the team.
I would complain about how my old 1996 Chevy Cavalier looked and rode like garbage.
I would complain about why my former job’s would give me a 15 cents raise after 1 year of work.
I would complain about looking like a bony scarecrow as a freshman in college.
I would complain about how some of my former business associates were not as motivated as I was to open a performance gym. Now let’s reframe this.
What if I would of been practicing shooting and dribbling instead of skipping practice and complaining?
What if I would of been changing the oil and getting tune-ups instead of driving that car into the ground and complaining?
What if I would of been laying the blueprint to open my own business and make my own money instead of relying on a company to give me a joke of a raise and complaining?
What if I had been pumping iron and eating like an athlete instead of avoiding the weight room and eating junk after track practice and complaining?
What if I had been focusing on how I could open my own gym instead of wasting my time trying to get others on the same wavelength and complaining?
If I still had that mindset I would be in the same exact spot as I was during that era…nowhere.
Complaining is a horrendous disease that will cripple you. But you can take action immediately in order to move forward towards your goals.
Are you skinny and weak? Stop complaining about it and go start to pump some iron.
Are you fat? Stop complaining about it and start to make healthier food choices.
Are you stressed and always tired? Stop complaining about it and begin to put a priority on getting more sleep.
Do you hate your job? Stop complaining about it and start doing something you want to do.
Are you lousy at your sport? Stop complaining about the coach and get committed to consistently practicing your sport.
I can promise you with 100 percent certainty that if you begin to spend more time taking action and less time complaining that you will be able to get so much closer to the goals that you want to reach. It has worked out tremendously for me and a few of my clients who have truly reframed their thinking.
Complainers are always unhappy and they are the definition of energy vampires who drain the life out of a room.
Next year they will be in the same place they are right now, unless they begin to take action. If you hang around them long enough, they will bring you down to their level.
People who spend most of their time taking action towards reaching their goals instead of complaining will have success.
I’ll holla at you next time.
