Today I heard this pearl of wisdom that had an immediate impact on me, I just had to share it.

"A complaint is simply an unmet need." 

Pause, let that sink in.

"A complaint is simply an unmet need." 

Succinct, insightful and so god damn obvious I couldn't help but laugh.

But why was it so impactful? I suppose because it's such a simple yet poweful tool.

So when you find yourself complaining, ask yourself, what is it that I need?

Firstly this stops those persistent negative thoughts that cause your mood and energy to spiral downwards. 

It also allows you to stop focusing your mind on the external environment and that victim mentality of something being done to you and gives you the power back to tune into your inner wisdom to ask for what you want.

You never know you might just get it!
