Complaining is like bad breath. We notice it when it comes out of someone else’s mouth, but not when it comes out of our own.
We all have the tendency to gripe, complain, make excuses and blame everyone except ourselves. It is human nature to complain about everything under the sun, we rant, complain, rage, get angry, and do anything to get it off our chest. All this is learned behavior which can be unlearned but it comes with the awareness that these habits need to be worked on to get us to the next level.
Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can. – Willis Whitney
Here are some top quotes on complaining, excusing and blaming:
If an optimist views the glass as half full and a pessimist views it as half empty, a complainer will tell you that the water in the glass is probably poisoned.
