Thoughts

Don't Be an Ouch Looking for a Hurt

Will Bowen, a Kansas City minister, has designed an innovative tool in the fight against negativity, murmuring, and complaining. It comes in the form of a simple purple bracelet, which he first offered to his congregation with a challenge to go 21 days without complaining. Each time one of them complained, they had to switch the bracelet to their other wrist and start again from day one.

"It was simple but effective awareness training," reports Tim Ferris of the Huffington Post. "The effects were immediate and life-changing."

"Complaining", Bowen suggests in his book "A Complaint Free World", "is a habit which can be broken. And once broken, one can be liberated to enjoy a life of greater gratitude, contentment and happiness."

According to research, it can take as little as 21 days to replace an old habit with a new one. Switching the bracelet from one wrist to the other after each complaint, until the bracelet eventually stays put for 21 days, is a simple and easy exercise that yields huge rewards.

As Bowen puts it, "Don't be an ouch looking for a hurt." Break the habit of whining and complaining about life. Take the 21 day challenge to help reset your mind's default setting from the negative to the positive. As you speak fewer and fewer negative words, you'll generate fewer and fewer negative thoughts.

Philippians 2:14-15

Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.

I love you all,

Tim

Thought for the Week

Proverbs 11:21 -- Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished,

but those who are righteous will go free.
