Positively Branded
I AM positively branding the world!

Silence is golden

Complainer: a person who expresses dissatisfaction, pain, uneasiness, censure, resentment, or grief; one who finds fault. People who know they can do better but choose not to.

Complaining can be more dangerous than you think. Voicing your complaints may seem innocent at first. After all you’re just venting. Everybody does it, right? Wrong! By sounding off about your problems, you are not helping but in actuality hurting the situation. One gripe here, one fuss there only amplifies the problem. Before you know it that little concern has taken on a life of its own.  So think before you start spewing negativity into the atmosphere.

“Do not listen to those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious.”  Og Mandino

“When any fit of gloominess, or perversion of mind, lays hold upon you, make it a rule not to publish it by complaints.” Samuel Johnson

“Learn to accept in silence the minor aggravations, cultivate the gift of taciturnity, and consume your own smoke with an extra draft of hard work, so that those about you may not be annoyed with the dust and soot of your complaints.” William Osler
