Quatrième de couverture
Harness the power of positive thinking and change your life in 21 days
Have you ever noticed how much we complain about things? Bitching, moaning or letting off steam - not only is focusing on the negative a waste of time, it also has a harmful effect on your life. So how can you focus on the positive, happy things in life instead?
Will Bowen shares the simple, innovative philosophy of staying 'complaint free' and reveals how it can change your life. He explains what constitutes a complaint (and what doesn't), why we complain, what benefits we think we receive from complaining, how complaining is destructive and how we can all stop complaining and start thinking and acting in positive ways.
Join the 5 million people worldwide who have taken the 'complain free' challenge! With this book's powerful yet simple message, and a little determination, you too can achieve a positive attitude and improve your life for good.

PS: Check out their website (acomplaintfreeworld.com) for tips for teaching children to become "complaint aware." Interestingly, a Missouri congressman was so impressed by the idea that he just introduced a bill into congress calling for a "Complaint-Free Wednesday," the day before Thanksgiving. I hope it passes....
We work on eradicating our complaining by obtaining purple bracelets from [...] and putting one on one of our wrists. Each time we catch ourselves complaining, criticising or gossiping, we move the bracelet to the other wrist. The aim is to go 21 days without a single complaint. Nearly all of us take many months to achieve our goal, and generally wear out several purple bracelets in the process, what with all the switching back and forth from one wrist to the other.
We are informed in the book that the bracelets are free, but in fact they now cost 10 dollars for 10 bracelets. (That was not a complaint - I find this very reasonable.) Will Bowen's web site now ships millions of bracelets all over the world. Will has started a challenge that is part of our global spiritual development in these amazing times, and his idea is rapidly transforming world consciousness.
Will is extremely honest in revealing his former shortcomings, namely his tendency to complain, criticize and gossip, which he first discovers when he accepts his own challenge. Apparently, we always notice our friends' complaints but not our own - not until we begin to move our bracelet with each complaint.
This is a wonderful, absolutely inspiring, easy-to-read, edifying and entertaining book.
We are shown that as we try to curb our negative utterances, this eventually has the effect that our mind simply stops thinking these complaining, critical thoughts, and thus we automatically become a much more positive person. When this happens, we become happier and our lives start to improve - good things start to happen!
The book is filled with captivating anecdotes about people's experiences and insights on their journey towards a complaint-free life, including Will's own stories.
Please note that you are permitted to share your feelings about something that has happened, though negative, just not "rehash" the events of what has happened. Also if we need to get something fixed by some authority, for example, we are allowed to state our grievances so that they can be remedied.
Will tells us that when we complain, we are saying "Something is wrong". Our bodies respond to our complaints with stress. Also, what we focus on persists. So when we complain we ensure that the things about which we are complaining keep on occurring.
The book ends with accounts by various persons who have successfully completed the 21-day challenge. They recount how wonderfully their lives have been transformed.
When we have completed the 21 days successfully, we can write to Will's web site and request that he send us a Certificate of Happiness.
I found this little book to be wonderfully encouraging. I have ordered my bracelets and am awaiting their arrival. I have begun to notice how much I complain and criticize and hope to annihilate this complaining and criticism, though it may be a little difficult for a reviewer!
