“Complaining is not to be confused with informing someone of a mistake or deficiency so that it can be put right. And to refrain from complaining doesn’t necessarily mean putting up with bad quality or behavior. There is no ego in telling the waiter your soup is cold and needs to be heated up—if you stick to the facts, which are always neutral. ‘How dare you serve me cold soup…?’ That’s
complaining.”—Eckhart Tolle, “A New Earth”
- There is too much complaining in the world.
- The state of the world is not the way we would like it.
Instead of focusing on what is wrong in the world, focus on how you want the world to be.
