Your Level of Vision
"Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it." -Anthony J. D'Angelo,
In life, all of us have complaints and concerns regarding various issues that occur around us. It may be the way that someone at work seems to rub you the wrong way. Or possibly at church you find that the "music is too loud." What about complaining of the next door neighbors that seem to always have a newer car than you?
Each of us will fall into this bad attitude trap at various times in our life. It will come to pass that you find your self in a state of perpetual complaining or yearning to have something beyond what you already have. Just consider what a friend of mine, Graham Fletcher, said, "the level of your complaint is the level of your vision."
If you complain about the situation, it is within that situation you will remain. Stop complaining and do something about it. You want that newer vehicle, then adjust your attitude and work towards having a new car. The music is too loud, then move to a different part of the church or find a church that is more suitable. One that you will be able to grow in, both in spirit and attitude. Maybe that person at work could use more cooperation from you or possibly mentoring. Doing so will increase your skills, the boss likes what you've done, possibly get a better pay raise next time. Then guess what, you just might be able to afford that new car to drive to church in.
Do not think that we can't complain in life. It is the idea that simply complaining and not doing anything about it that restricts you. One way to deal with it is to "see the answer and not the problem", get up and do something to correct the situation in order to achieve a greater life.
There is a lot of good out in the world and a lot of potential in each one of you.
Move to make change and leave your complaints behind. Reach out for a greater vision that is obtainable by choosing not to hold onto complaints. Do it today for now is the time.
Stay inspired my friends.
