Life is full of people who love a good whinge.
People who like to whinge, but do nothing about it.
How many people do you know who complain about their job, their weight, their partner, whatever it might be – but while they complain, they don’t do anything about it?
There are really only ever two options for a situation you don’t feel good about – change the situation, or change how you feel about it.
You’re not a tree. You’re not fixed to the ground. Move.
If you dislike your job, what are you doing about it? Are you looking for other work? Are you upskilling yourself for a change of career?
If you don’t love your partner anymore, what are you doing about it? Are you having open and honest conversations? Are you doing the work needed to rekindle how you used to feel about them?
I learned as a teenager that people love a good whinge but noticed they didn’t seem to do anything about it. Girls in my office would bitch about me being skinny while they sat there and ate rice crackers but drank bottles of wine after work and never set foot in a gym.
I learn early on in a coaching conversation with a potential client whether they’re really committed to doing what it takes to achieve what they say they want, or whether they expect me to do it for them, or to offer a magic bullet.
If someone is unwilling to do the work, they won’t change anything about their situation.
What have you been unhappy with lately? Do you know what you need to do to change it? Do you need to find someone to help you with your action steps or mindset?
If you think you’ve tried everything that’s usually never true.
There’s always someone who can help you shed a different light on a situation.
But most of all, you need to be willing to be honest with yourself about what needs to happen, and then strap some balls on and take action.
If you think you might need a hand with that, get in touch with me. I’ll walk alongside you, keep you accountable, and if needed, give you a firm kick up the bum to help you get to where you want to be 😆
