Beyond all of the different ages people argue we are living in, I believe we are living in the age of whiners and wimps.  Yeah, you heard correctly whiners and wimps.

Take a look at people these days, look back on the conversations you’ve had lately, what do you hear but a bunch of whiners and wimps. This might even include you so you better be careful.

In your conversations you might hear, the economy sucks, I can’t find a job, I lost my house, I can’t afford this or that, I want to do this but can’t, whine, whine, whine.

You know what I say to people, “shut up, quit whining and go and do something. Who is holding you back? No one is really holding you back other than you, so GO and make something happen. Quit sitting around here like a whiner and a wimp.”

Then, the excuses set in which is just something else the whiners and wimps carry around in their toolbox. You probably can’t even count how many times you have heard this lately; I don’t have the money, I don’t have the skills, I don’t know the people.

Give me a break. I don’t care what you do or don’t know or have. All the time you took to come up with those excuses, you could have already started making something happen.

I understand we have suffered some pretty intense devastation’s over the last decade or so, but this does not give anyone the excuse to walk around like a whiner or a wimp. Really, this should motivate more people to stand up and say, “This is awesome”! What a great time to help someone, change something, build something, or just do something great. This is a dream come true.

How can you expect to get anywhere as an individual, as a family, or as a nation when all we see and hear these days are a bunch of whiners and wimps. Every person should stop whining, quit being a wimp, and stand up and do something.

Here are a 3 things for you whiners and wimps out there:

1. If you have time to whine, then you have time to do something about it.

If you have the time to call people up and whine, then you have the time to pull out a sheet of paper and start mapping out something you can do to make an impact in the world.

2. Nobody wants to spend time around a whiner or a wimp.

Take a moment to think of someone who whines all the time, or someone who is just a plain wimp. Are you smiling yet? No way, because we hate spending time with people like this. All it does is bring us down and make us want to slam our heads against the wall.

3. Whiners and wimps are annoying.

They are like finger nails on a chalkboard. The longer you are with them they make you want to cringe and blitz out of the room as fast as you can.

4. Whiners and wimps never accomplish anything other than…….maybe a trailer.

If a trailer is what you are shooting for then awesome! For most people, I am sure they are not shooting for a trailer, but because of all their whining and wimping around they end up in a trailer.

You can probably tell I am not a big fan of whiners or wimps. I mean, why should I be. We live in nation where there is endless opportunity even in times like these. All it takes is a little hard work, dedication, and self discipline to go and make something happen.
