The Wisdom of 'Put Up or Shut Up You've probably heard the old saying: "put up or shut up". In other words, if you're unhappy with a situation... either do something about it or stop complaining about it. As simplistic or harsh as it may sound, there's a lot of wisdom in that concept. Because you really do have a choice between doing something positive... and doing something negative... about a bad situation. You either change the situation - or how you feel about the situation - or you accept it and stop obsessing about it. Both are relatively positive ways of dealing with it. Doing nothing is less so, but still better than the alternative, which is to keep on complaining. Even if you take steps to change... constantly whinging and whining is effectively recycling bad feelings over and over. Don't do it. Put up or shut up instead. by Anna Johnson of Success Accelerator

I agree with you. The thing is people should get busy and stop to bla bla bla. Do something about it or get over it! LOL
