If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.

What you complain about

You draw into your life what you focus on. One powerful, negative way to direct your focus is by complaining.

As a result, the people and circumstances that exert influence over your life can be the ones you complain most loudly about. Your complaints have the effect of perpetuating themselves.

Your focus, in and of itself, does not cause things to happen in the external world. However, your focus does have a significant impact on the way you perceive and react to what happens in your world.

So by complaining about something, you expand its presence in your life. Fortunately, you have much better alternatives for directing your focus.

You can focus less on what you despise and more on what you love. You can focus on solutions to problems rather than on who is to blame and the harm they cause.

Let your thoughts be occupied by positive possibilities, not by repeated complaints. Instead of complaining, you can always choose to focus on thoughts that lead your life in satisfying and beneficial directions.
