Stop. Fucking. Complaining.

Stop. Fucking. Complaining. -Chad Howse

Stop making excuses.

Stop finding reasons for your unhappiness, your failure in life.

Stop looking at the lives others lead and enviously wanting to be in their shoes, with their upbringing, and their social status.

Whining, complaining, giving reasons for why you’re failing, they’re all excuses and they all remove YOUR ability to BE HAPPY.

For fuck’s sakes it’s getting to be too much!

Everywhere you go you hear people complaining. Conversations start about what’s wrong with their job or with the world or how they wish they could take a vacation.

You can’t! We need to work. We need to save. We need to shut up and do what we’ve gotta do because we want to not only survive, but thrive!

Since when are vacations a “right”?

Since when do we deserve what we cannot afford and should not spend our money on?

Since when is buckling down and saving and working harder not the only option?

If you don’t like where you are in life YOU HAVE TO CHANGE IT.

No one is coming to save you or hand you what you want. That’s just the reality, and you should be thankful for that because you get to EARN WHAT YOU WANT!

STOP STARTING CONVERSATIONS WITH COMPLAINTS.

STOP WHINING.

STOP GOSSIPING.

STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF AND START LIVING!

Living isn’t something that can be done while in ease.

Living isn’t something that we can do sitting on our ass.

Living is a verb. It requires action. It requires that we do more than we’re comfortable doing because living a life of pure comfort is the opposite of living. Living isn’t found in a safe-haven. It’s found beyond the confines of your zones of comfort in the real, cold, harsh world that only rewards what’s actually earned.

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR THOUGHTS.

CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS AND YOUR MOOD.

WORK HARDER SIMPLY BECAUSE WORKING MAKES YOU FEEL VALUABLE.

BE MORE DISCIPLINED. STOP WASTING MONEY. STOP WASTING TIME. STOP WASTING ENERGY GOSSIPING ABOUT BULLSHIT THAT JUST MAKES YOU FEEL SORRY FOR YOURSELF.

MAN UP!

    Just discovered this site and I have been blazing through your articles. Great to see someone who isn’t afraid to be brutally honest. Looking forward to reading more!

    I found this site today in a link from the Art of Man. Strong work, Chad! You have put in words what I have increasingly suspected…that our popular culture today (at least in the U.S.) is eroding our virility as men. I detest the ever pervasive yet insidious emasculation and domestication of men. Alas, I fear I describe myself. So subtle it starts from pre-school onward. No running on the playground lest a tender child suffer an abrasion. Medals for all! Competition makes the kids that lose feel bad! Don’t warp their precious self-esteem! Political correctness run amok.
    I say: Love passionately; be resolute in your convictions; never be afraid to fail; take risk (don’t be reckless); never compromise your ethics; no one can ever take away your integrity, but you can relinquish it all too easily; work hard, very hard; treat others with courtesy, love (Latin – agape), and respect; use your talents to help those in need; honor your commitments; train your mind and body for strength and endurance; live life with zest! I will die someday. I endeavor to truly be able to look back on my life without regret and know that my life made a difference for the better. So…off the couch and depart for work I must!

    I find your site quite helpful!! I will follow closely.

    Thank you very much!

    You want to get on my LAST nerve? Be a complaining male. I want to take a 2×4 and smack them upside the head. Enough shit in life we have to legitimately deal with; however to hear some male bitch whine?

    Tell the truth Chad! Amen!

    And I’d like to add, stop being envious of others and what they have.

  • Todd Anderson

    Dude, simply put…you are spot on.
