We find it easier to nag and complain about things. How can we let go of this habit? What will happen then?

SAT and ACT studying, I shouldn’t complain or give up and have excuses

Good moral
I felt that was a good moral. I will be starting my new job tomorrow and it reinforced my work ethic, but I am still nervous.

Overcoming...
Obstacles are in our life to make us stronger &/or wiser. I believe we gain much of the energy of the obstacle when we overcome it. Kinda like how a weight lifter cannot get stronger unless they lift weights. Then the stronger they become,the more weight they need to lift. No sense going into a gym complaining about all the weights, they just get busy lifting them and become stronger. And so it is with obstacles. As we overcome them we get stronger &/or wiser. If we choose to ignore an obstacle, it will somehow get stronger & more difficult. So best to take care of obstacles as soon as you discover them! ❤️💪🏼🍀

Growth through adversity
Yep, struggles that we move through successfully make us stronger. I totally agree and remind myself of that each day. Nice illustration of this concept.

Try to avoid complaining about a situation unless you are prepared to do something constructive to change it!

Obstacles
I learned that dealing with the obstacles in your life will not only resolve the issue it caused, but also strengthen you for the future ones.

Obstacle as an opportunity
Don’t avoid difficult times, but seize them and use it as a learning opportunity. They may be easier to accomplish than complaining about doing it.

Strengthening...
It comes back to mindset and attitude. Is it an obstacle or an opportunity? The weightlifter goes into the gym and looks around at all the weights. He doesn’t look at all the “obstacles”around the gym, he sees all the opportunities to get stronger. I’ve always felt each obstacle has a certain amount of energy in it and when we overcome it we gain some of that energy and thus we get stronger. I love this story how it physically was money hidden under the Boulder thus the peasant gets richer from taking action. Great lesson, thanks Nitima for helping us to remember to see the opportunity in every obstacle. Namaste, ❤️💪🏼🍀

Check the pronunciation. It’s not “pea-sant” as in “peas” but rather “pleasant”.

Do Good
I learned a reminder to do good without expectations of anything in return.
