Are You a Whiner or a Winner?Are You a Whiner or a Winner? Managing Emotions and Thriving Under Pressure

Why do people whine? You know the type-take them to listen to their favorite concert and they’ll complain about the volume. Give them a gift and they’ll tell you that you should save your money. Take them to a party and they’ll gripe about how they didn’t wear the right clothes. Everyone has a whiner or two in their circle of friends and family members. You probably know someone in the workplace that whines. “My boss never listens to me.” “I don’t have the education to go further.” “I’m just at the low end of the totem pole.” Whether you know it or not, each of us has a “whiner” inside of us. Unfortunately, that whiner inside of us blocks us from creating what we really want-whether it be in our personal or business lives. We all want to be winners. Some of us just don’t think we deserve it, can ever capture it or just won’t be considered as a winner. As AA says, that’s “Stinking Thinking!” Get rid of it because you are a grand prize! You are a valuable asset to any team.
