book while I was waiting for something, not because I was interested in the subject Overall, it was a decent book and held my attention from cover to cover However, I am pretty sure that if you take this book s advice, you will either become a doormat or everyone will think you ve taken a vow of silence The idea is to take the challenge to stop complaining out loud for 21 days at which point it will supposedly become a habit but almost half of the book is actually about The Secret which is the very old idea that you can make good things happen to you by thinking about them I understand why the author included that, even though it s not his own idea If you re using your intentions to make good things happen to you, then you will have less to complain about My favorite part of the book was when he explained why people complain and what you can do about it For example, people complain because they want attention, remove responsibility from themselves, inspire envy, have power point out flaws in others just to say they don t have that flaw , and excuse their poor performance So if you determine that they just want to remove the responsibility for their problem by playing the yes, but game, you can say, I have faith in your ability to handle your problem and if you say it often enough, they will either solve their problem or stop talking to you Either way, you win This advice was the best and made it all worth the read My least favorite part was all the filler I think there are way too many testimonials at least one to start every chapter and then a chapter full of them at the end He also includes some seriously disturbing, graphic stories of people who remained positive when they had bad things happen to them Without all the filler of testimonials, stories about how awful it is to hear people complain, and all the stuff about The Secret, the book would beof a pamphlet I m not sure if I will actually try and stop complaining, but I kind of like the idea Now I am unsure how I can point out things that are negative without it being complaining He says that it s OK to point out problems as long as it s to the person who is directly responsible and if you have the right tone of voice I don t know if I can handle that but even if I m not sure when I am complaining or stating a fact, I think it will benefit me to be mindful of when I am possibly complaining or being negative Like many another book before it, this book falls into the self help category But while a lot of self help books are narrowly focused on just that the self this is one of the inspiring few that derives its power from a vision of a better world that is created as one individual at a time chooses a better way Rather than focusing on neuroses, phobias, anxieties, etc., this book instead focuses on what life would look like if we made one simple but not easy change speak about the things we wi Like many another book before it, this book falls into the self help category But while a lot of self help books are narrowly focused on just that the self this is one of the inspiring few that derives its power from a vision of a better world that is created as one individual at a time chooses a better way Rather than focusing on neuroses, phobias, anxieties, etc., this book instead focuses on what life would look like if we made one simple but not easy change speak about the things we wish to put our creative energy toward instead of complaining about the things we don t like.That is, in fact, one of the book s central tenets that what we focus our attention on expands and that it is therefore important to focus on what we want in our lives rather than putting our attention on what we don t want But while that emphasis can easily lead an author into some kind of new age y channeling of the positive forces in the universe, Bowen keeps his book very down to earth He does believe that we can attract positive things into our lives by being positive, but the book centers around the simple, mundane, every day solution of simply not complaining Bowen argues that our words are powerful, not only because they affect other people, but also because they reflect and reify our own thought processes If we spend a lot of our time complaining, then we devote a lot of our thought processes to finding things to complain about Change what you say, and you can change what you think To this end, he poses a 21 day challenge Wear a bracelet or a rubber band on your wrist Switch it to your other wrist every time you verbalize a complaint See if you can go 21 days without switching wrists.I haven t taken the challenge yet, so I can t speak to its effectiveness, but just having read the book was a valuable experience Bowen discusses the reasons we complain and some ways we can address these issues, and he gives strategies for thinking about things differently and dealing with problems productively His writing is direct and upbeat his examples, mostly drawn from his own life, are compellingly simple and clear While he undoubtedly rehashes some basic self help dictums, he does so in a way that is fresh and inspiring Best of all, he is short
