We're going through lots of excited changes and shifts in the backstage of Cafe Gratitude, LLC. We are moving into using new programs, changing how we manage our finances, and having challenging and inspiring conversations around sharing. As we stretch and grow as a company we feel those stretch-marks building and lean into the discomfort more and more every day. Last night at our manager meeting, Terces invited us all to keep the vibration high and the energy moving towards the greatness of all of these changes, no matter how challenging them might be. Together, we are all taking on no complaining for 21 days.
To take on this practice, start your commitment now. If you witness yourself falling into referring to yourself as a victim, or diminishing of something/someone/someplace, then start over! It's another 21 days until you've accomplished the commitment! As Terces shared with us last night, complaints are not intended to further a project, they are meant to put in obstacles. Complaints inhibit progress and function as a disabler. When I complain, I know that I am taking myself out of the drivers seat to be the victim of the circumstance. When I complain, I know that I am affirming that complaint- I am making my word create my reality, like an affirmation. As Terces said last night, ideas and sharing is great, but feedback needs to support the progression of the team.
I know that this is a longer commitment than a week in our usual "Invitations" on Mondays for the week! This time I invite you to for the next 21 days starting NOW stop complaining. See what unveils itself to you.
