Why Whining is Self-Destructive
When I had my gym in California, I created a
“No Whining Rule” so I wouldn’t have to listen
to all the cry babies who weren’t willing to put
100% into what they were doing.
I printed it out, framed it and put it in the gym, where
everyone could easily see it. Then I put it on a sheet of
acceptable protocol and gave it to every member.
90% of the whining stopped, right then and there, simply
because I let everyone know that you never succeed by
whining, complaining or making excuses. Instead, you
succeed by saying to yourself, if success is to be, it is
UP to ME.
The result: Success rate went through the roof.
The reason I’m against whining is simple. Whenever you
whine you’re giving power to circumstances and taking
it away from yourself. You’re claiming that you can’t
do anything because everything is outside of your
It isn’t. And it is amazing how your circumstances change
when you stop whining and begin adopting the belief that
if success is to be, it is up to me.
For every person whining about how pitiful his life and
circumstances are, you can find plenty of examples of
those who had it worse, yet rose to even higher levels of
greatness because of the adversity.
How did the victors rise above the so-called victim status.
By focusing on a goal; by taking time to “be still.” By using
their imagination creatively to plan a new way of being –
and by rolling up their sleeves and doing whatever must
be done to change things for the better.
P.S. An important change is in the works for the Psycho-
Cyb website. I’ll be updating the products, the technology
and a whole lot more very soon. It will take what I’m
teaching and what Dr. Maltz taught into a Universe of
Possibilities you’ve never experienced before. Stay
