Do you have any friends, family, or acquaintances that are always blaming others? Complaining? Or criticizing?  Don’t they drive you crazy…

If we observe something in others and don’t take the time to do some self-reflecting; we may be someone we too wouldn’t want to be around.  While not perfect, I have learned some of my greatest moments in life are when I give up:

Blaming others-It is true we can all fail at many things and do so over and over again but we aren’t failures if we get back up and know it is us alone who are responsible…

Complaining-We don’t go a day where we aren’t either participating or listening to a complaint about someone or something.  If we look at life like this; we miss out on what is really true.  Think of it like this:  Would you rather complain that a rose has thorns, or be grateful thorns have roses?  It is all in how we look at life…

Criticizing-If we are quick to criticize another; what does it really mean?  Think about it for a  minute.  Are we simply jealous, are we making excuses, or are we upset we aren’t meeting our potential?  Whatever it is, STOP IT!  Find yourself so active in improving yourself the you have no time to stop and criticize another…
