Day 21: Don't Complain

Honestly? What are you waiting for? Do everything you can now. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now! Get started! Don't hesitate! Don't overthink!

At the end of your life, you won't regret your experiences or the things you've done, but rather the things you haven't. Life is like a river, and standing still means fighting against the current. It drains your energy without any benefit.

Living life to the fullest means letting yourself be carried by the flow. Change direction as you please. Go where your heart desires. Be bold and free! Don't set limits, neither physically nor in your mind.

Engage with experiences and people

Explore your surroundings and absorb everything around you. Connect with people, seek encounters. Be brave and overcome your fears. Life is finite, and no one regrets the things they did, only the moments they hesitated. Don't hesitate.

Whenever you stand at a crossroads in life, choose the challenging path. "The obstacle is the way," as a great book by Ryan Holiday says. Be courageous, follow your heart, and turn every obstacle into a path.

Stop complaining! Every successful person has faced setbacks. Paths are never straight, but successful is the one who gets up more times than they choose to stay down.

So, the formula for success is simple: Just don't stay down! Stand up even when you fall! Dust yourself off and continue. It's as simple as that.

My daughter and I have a little mantra: "Don't complain!" When we catch ourselves complaining or lamenting, we remind each other: "Don't complain!" It may sound simple, but these two words work wonders!

They force you to look at the situation from the outside, not to complain but to take action. They pull you out of lethargy and get you back into action. That's the secret to success. Don't complain and keep going.

So, if you want an answer to the question, "How do I become successful?" it's "Don't complain!" "Don't complain and work." Invest your energy in actions, not in lamenting.
