Complaining, Negativity, and The Fertilizer of Life

Dear Fellow Human,

Most people complain about their relationships.

They complain about their partners. Their partners aren’t this or that or do this or they do that.

They complain about their jobs, their finances, their lives.

What a load of shit.

First of all, the only thing you can change in this life is yourself.

So perhaps you should work on accepting and finding gratitude in what you have, in what you’ve committed to, and the opportunities you have in front of you.

Anything else is complacent weakness nonsense.

Second, watch how your life changes as you improve yourself and your perspective.

Watch how all of your relationships shift for the better as you start feeding your reality gratitude.

Watch as more opportunities come your way the more you find the positive in things.

Watch as you feel better, look better, perform better.

The growth mindset is fertilizer. It grows EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE.

Your goal should be to stop complaining.

When you catch yourself, stop.

When people around you start complaining or gossiping, change the subject or walk away.

Negativity is toxic. It makes you unhappy. It removes the joy from life.

It destroys.

Life is too short for that weak-minded nonsense.

The Universe is neutral—it just responds to what you feed it.

So don’t feed it junk food and you won’t get sickness in return.

Man spends his life in reasoning on the past, in complaining of the present, in fearing future.

Something I Improved This Week

Paying closer attention to my gut health

I’m working on fixing my gut. I think I’ve been hitting coffee too hard for too long.

So it’s time for a reset.

It’s not been easy.

Our CocoTropic is def helping.

I’ve been cutting caffeine and doing iced decaf espresso. I think I need to go cold turkey for a while.

This is still a work in progress.


Something I Enjoyed This Week

Getting my motivation back

I struggle with taking it slow.

I struggle with the times I don’t feel motivated to work.

In fact, it scares the hell out of me.

What if I never want to work again?

What if I lose my edge?

This shit is not rational, of course, but most emotional fear-based thoughts are.

What I’ve learned is to let these thoughts and feelings come and go.

I don’t force it. I just let it be. Let it do its thing. And let it move on.

And it always moves on.


Quote

"Some things are better off ignored than attacked.

Attention is the oxygen of conflict. When you fight a problem, you breathe life into it. When you starve a problem of your attention, you suffocate it.

In a surprising number of cases, the way to solve a problem is to ignore it."

-James Clear

“Mentors won’t make you rich. Doctors won’t make you healthy. Nutritionists won’t make you slim. Teachers won’t make you smart. Gurus won’t make you calm. Trainers won’t make you fit. Ultimately, you have to take responsibility. Save yourself.”

-Naval
