Dr. Maya Angelou on being Complaint Free – Transcript

How do I think the world would be in 1% of the world’s population was complaint free?

Einstein said no genius has ever used more than 18% of the brains but today’s geophysicist say no Tina says ever use more than 10% of the brain. The majority of us mumbled and get around with five, six, seven percent.

If we’ve been able to stay alive at all, alive and future thinking. Alive and having enough courage to care for each other. Enough courage to love. And know that we are probably one one percent of sixty million free of complaints. Imagine who would we be!

Who would we be if we were one percent of six hundred million? Six billion? What would happen?

I tell you one thing, I think war would be laughed out of the room. I think the very word… if somebody said war another person would say you mean am I supposed to kill somebody because he doesn’t agree with me? Ha, I don’t think so.

Just imagine … people would speak kind, they’re more kindly to each other. Courtesy would be invited back into the living room, into the bedroom, into the children’s room, into the kitchen.

If 1% of our world were complaint free, we would care more about the children and realize that every child is our child. The black one and the white one, the pretty one the plain one, the Asian and the Muslim, the Japanese and the Jewish. Everyone is our child.

If we were just 1% free of complaints imagine that we would stop blaming other people for our mistakes and hating them because they caused the mistake in our minds.
What's standing between you and success?

Just imagine if we laughed more frequently if we had the unmitigated courage to touch each other. It would be a just beginning of paradise you know

Thank you.

So how long can you go without complaining?

Suggested Guidelines

Commit to being positive for 21 days.

Use of a calendar to mark off the days, a 21-day calendar template can be found on GratitudeSeeds.com. You can print this template or create one of your own and post in a place you will see every day.

Link to: 21 Day Calendar Template

To keep you focused here are some guidelines to keep you on the right path:

  1. Change the words you use from the negative to the positive.
  2. No Criticizing: find the positive in all situations.
  3. No Complaining: state facts instead of complaining.
  4. Gossip only if you would say it if the person were present with the same inflection and same words.

Each day you go without complaining, criticizing or gossiping check off the day on the calendar. If you catch yourself complaining, criticizing or gossiping (it’s ok, everyone does) forgive yourself and start the calendar again. On the 20th day you will want to be very careful!

Stay with it. It may take many months but when you reach 21 days you will find that your entire life is happier, more loving and more enjoyable.

You will find new energy as you complete the exercise and a sense of power to pursue what you really are meant to do.

Accept the challenge. All you have to lose is complaining!
