I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but there are a lot of annoying young business people that just won’t stop complaining. It seems like the age of social media has bred a terrible generation of people that vent about the dumbest things in life, even when they have everything going for them, namely a job or their own startup. If they worked as much as they complained, they would probably be pretty successful; this is a tell tale quality of a “wantrepreneur.”
Working to be successful ain’t easy, and these days, actually reaching success is damn near impossible, but when it comes time to shake hands with success, you want to be able to say you did without complaining about it every step of the way. Here are ten things you should never complain about so you don’t come off as a whiny little b*tch.
Being busy all the time.
This is not a race. It doesn’t make you look cooler because you find ways to make your life miserable. Stop trying to compete with everyone on how busy your day is. Life is meant to be enjoyed, it doesn’t make you any less of a human being if you relax once in a while.
How other people are more successful than you.
As the old Chinese saying goes “There will always be a taller mountain,” stop comparing yourself to others because it will simply make you feel like shit. Instead, focus on what your own purpose is and what you want to achieve, it will make life more fulfilling.
Lack of money.
Who doesn’t have money problems? Who isn’t worried about having enough money to run their startup? It’s all a part of the grind. All that time you spend bitching about money can be spent towards doing things to fix that problem.
The people you work with.
They are a part of your team, you guys are working together to make things happen. If you’re an employee and don’t like them, either fix the relationship or quit. If you’re an entrepreneur who doesn’t like the people they work with, either fix it or get rid of them.
Everyone has issues with their parents. But in the end, you have to realize that they are the people that raised and nurtured you. No matter the differences between you guys, just know that their time is limited, cherish those moments instead of complaining about petty things that aren’t productive.
The way you look.
If you’re truly unsatisfied with how you look on the outside, stop bitching, hit the gym, and eat healthier. Otherwise, don’t let what others things of you cloud your mind. The only opinion that matters if yours and nothing else.
Traffic is always going to be an issue if you’re driving around a major city. Either use public transit if available, leave early, or suck it up and try to use that time to call a family member to catch up.
Unless your main purpose in life is to find your soulmate, what’s so bad about being single? Your main purpose should be to build your career and to pursue your passions. How is anyone going to be attracted to you when you’re not even a quality product yet? All that time complaining about being single can be spent on improving yourself and your career.
Ok seriously, with the saturation of articles on the internet telling you to follow your passions in life, you seriously look like a complete idiot if you’re still bitching about your work. Either do what you love or quit and find something more fulfilling.
The Wi-Fi speed.
There was once a time when it took years to load a simple picture. I feel that this generation of people shows a clear lack of appreciation that we can now access the world without a f*cking wire. Even worse, your ungrateful ass goes as far as to complain when the speed of FREE internet is too slow. If it bothers you that much, get your own hotspot. Can’t afford one? Repeat after me: “beggars can’t be choosers!”
