“Stop whining, start hustling.” -Gary Vaynerchuk
You want to know a secret approach that almost always works? Work.
Working your way out of a situation is almost always beneficial and more likely to produce good results than sitting on your butt complaining about how the world is unfair and that you caught a bad break and you’re the victim of whatever.
Instead of whining, try working. You might get so involved in solving your problems that you don’t realize that you’ve gotten yourself out of the negative situation. You might be working so hard you don’t notice that others are noticing and starting to try and help you. And you might not see that you are reprogramming your mind from looking for excuses to finding solutions.
Motivation comes from the root of “movement”. Get moving instead of moaning.
