“I guess things could have been worse.”

These are the words spoken by individuals who have experienced true challenges. So when we want to complain about the small stuff, we mustn’t forget that they could always be worse.

I’d love to share with you a powerful poem spoken by Rudy Francisco about “Complainers”. Are you a complainer? Take a look.

Key Takeaways

Muscle is created by repeatedly lifting things that have been designed to weigh us down. So when your shoulders feel heavy, stand up straight and lift your chin – call it exercise. When the world crumbles around you, you have to look at the wreckage and then build a new one out of the pieces that are still here. Remember, you are still here.

The human heart beats approximately four thousand times per hour. Each pulse, each throb, each palpitation is a trophy engraved with the words “You are still alive”. You are still alive.

Act like it.
