Have you ever wondered why the world is the way it is today? I have. I have come to the conclusion that the world is in the predicament it is in because the majority of people focus on what they don't like. I would suggest that all of the whiners stop whining and turn their attention to making the world a better place. Think in terms of solutions, not how the other guy is doing something you don't like. If you don't like the way one does something then it is your responsibility to do it better.

Spend some time appreciating what you have. No matter who you are, you undoubtedly have more than someone else does. Appreciate it and work toward making the world a better place than it is right now for everyone. Complainers don't get very far in life because they focus on the negative, drawing more of it to them.

Rather than focusing on how bad a war is, think about the fact that it will end. Rather than focusing on what you don't have, focus instead on what you do have. You'll get what you want when you put your focus and energy into it. There is no other way.

If you don't like your country, leave it. If you don't like your town, move to a place you'd like better. If you don't like your neighbor, get a different one. Moving forward is the only way to accomplish anything and sitting back and complaining about your life is not moving forward. To move in any direction requires action. To stay where you are is to do nothing but complain about where you are. That is the road to nowhere. Get behind the wheel of your life and drive.

Our world is where it is today because so many people live in fear and inaction. If you don't like something, do something about it. Just do something.

There is more good in this world than most people realize and every negative situation can become a positive one when the lesson it holds is seen and acted upon.

There was a point in my own life where I hated my existence. I complained all of the time. It was not until I took action to change my circumstances that my life completely changed into one I would not trade for all of the money in the world. I learned that the only person who could change my life was me, and all the complaining in the world would serve no purpose, but to add to my misery. I could walk away from the unfairness I perceived and make life fair again, on my own terms.

If you don't like the food put in front of you, do you eat it and complain later, or do you find something else to eat? Are you thankful that you have food to eat in the first place, or are you going to be stuck on the fact that you don't like what is in front of you?

Life is your choice. Make it everything you want it to be; I dare you.
