“Don’t complain, 80% of people don’t care and 20% of people are happy you have them” – Lou Holtz

When you complain, the brutal chances are the person you’re talking to doesn’t care. This doesn’t have to be because they are mean people, but when you’re working out it should feel uncomfortable, for everyone. Complaining about how much pain you’re in or how sore you are will cause the other person to roll their eyes because they are feeling the same thing. There are also the people who are happy you are complaining because it makes them feel better about themselves. If you complain about being unable to lose weight, they will be happy you’re overweight because it makes them feel better about their weight. Then the only benefit of complaining is for the other person to feed off of your complaints. So when it doubt, stay positive and keep your complaints to yourself.

  1. We complained so much at work, you had to put a quarter into the complaints jar. We bought lottery tickets with the dough. The Royal Creedo is “Never complain..never explain.” You never have to explain yourself or tell someone why you are doing what you are doing. I like those words.☘
