“The first is that it doesn’t work. You can whine about [your political opponent or] the government or your friends or your job or your family, but nothing will happen except that you’ll waste time [and money].
Worse… far worse… is that whining is a reverse placebo. When you get good at whining, you start noticing evidence that makes your whining more true. So you amplify that and immerse yourself in it, thus creating more evidence, more stuff worth complaining about…” ~Seth Godin, business guru
