Stop Complaining!

I know that sometimes things don’t go exactly as you intended, but without doing something about it, nothing is likely to change. So, stop complaining, it will ruin your complexion. Inside and out.

Your Priority Should Be the Family, Not the Job!

I am convinced that you know what is your number one priority. In theory you do. In practice, you might not be so skilled at managing your job outside work.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard “it’s not my job”, I would be rich by now. In return, the legend goes that every grey hair I got it’s a direct consequence of someone using this expression.
be worry

Don’t happy, be worry
