Will Bowen, Author of A Compliant Free World (hopefully you heard the interview Christen and I did on Live the Day) is working to get the Wednesday before Thanksgiving to be declared Complaint Free Day in America. I can’t think of anything better to bring awareness to the benefits of not complaining.
I have been wearing my Complaint Free Bracelet for months now, no haven’t made it to 21 days without complaining. In fact my bracelet is so worn I might just have to replace it soon. However making myself aware of complaining has made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and how I treat other people. And when I do start complaining I catch myself and stop.
Please follow the instructions below and ask your congressperson to support the bill. You can also find out more about Will Bowen, the book A Compliant Free World and this bill by going to the Compliant Free Website.
Here’s to taking action
