He notes that it's a waste of time because it doesn't work out and
it's a reverse placebo. Seth says,
When you get good at whining, you start noticing evidence that makes your whining more true. So you amplify that and immerse yourself in it, thus creating more evidence, more stuff worth complaining about.Seth's suggestion, I think, is to stop whining. He also seems to suggest prattling on about how optimistic you are. My suggestion is a little bit different - do something about it! Everyone of us can be an agent of change. Whining and complaining are cheap and useless but looking for solutions and creating new possibilities are far more gratifying and productive and something we can all do! Make the world a better place. Pick up a book and read with a child today. Maybe a picture book.
