Are Your Words Helping You?
A sign of success is the ability to deal with challenges in a way that has a minimum effect on your goals. It is essential to frame our challenges properly. We want to demonstrate to ourselves and others that we are the type of person that can succeed despite challenges.
The problem is that instead of dealing with our challenges, we publicly complain about them without wanting to provide many solutions. This signals to others and yourself that you are not willing to do the work necessary to succeed.
Publicly when I write or present, I am very aware and careful about framing my challenges. There is a big difference between saying “here is my problem’ and “here’s my problem, and this is what I’m doing about it.” In most instances, the latter is always a better way to go. Unfortunately, we are in an environment where complaining the loudest is rewarded.
Don’t fall into that trap.
