Common complaints are very dangerous. You hear certain complaints from others, and these complaints become almost a part of daily conversation. You may recognise some of these complaints as conversation starters: I hate him/her, I’m tired/exhausted/I didn’t get enough sleep, It’s too hot/too/cold/I’m freezing, Men are jerks, my teacher is a jerk, my life sucks, my stomach hurts, and on and on.
You often use complaints as ice breakers or because you are often bored, but then the conversation flits around these complaints and due to the Laws of Attraction; they become real. Walk into a classroom situation, you now have a bad attitude, and you really are sick and tired. You left our good vibes and learning curves at the door. Even the teacher can feel the stickiness of your complaints.
Avoid the common complaints that start out your conversations. Go 24 hours without complaining about anything out loud. Keep you simple complaints to yourself. You will be amazed at what the Laws of Attraction will bring back to you. You may be hungry, bored or tired, think about it. Who cares, really?
One teacher who became very disheartened about the continual complaining in her high school Spanish Class created a “compliant jar.” Students who had a complaint, kept it to themselves, wrote it down, put it in the jar, and forgot it. At the end of the week, complaints were read. All the complaints that were your ordinary complaints flew out the window. Complaints about the class, teaching or lessons, were read, discussed and ways to improve them discussed and planned.
Empowered students brought back their good vibrations. They knew their valid complaints were being heard. Several of the students began to say things the way they wanted, rather than the complaining and whining what it currently was. Use the laws of attraction and attract the story the way you want it to be. Choose to stop telling everyone around you things that are difficult in your life. If you need a shoulder to cry on, so be it, but find one person, tell them and move on. How much more pleasant is it to be around someone who has nothing to complain about? Try and be that person.
