Some people moan all the time. It’s making life worse for them and everyone around them – you need to realise if you’re a complainer, and if you are you can do something about it!

When you're complaining: 

  • You’re focusing on problems you miss opportunities
  • Perceived problems stop you from taking action
  • You’ll be less happy, yet reality will be no different
  • Nobody will want to be around you!

Rob and Rob talk about how changing your mindset can make a big difference. 

  • Develop the attitude of not complaining, and you’ll have a better life without needing anything to change in reality
  • “If you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.” – Zig Ziglar
  • Complaining is a habit like any other, and you can break it if you try.
