Stop complaining, start compounding

We hear a lot of complaints - on incompetency, corruptions, bad policies, unbelievable public statements as a whole of this nation. While these may have a ground of truth, it's very dangerous to let our hearts filled with such ungrateful and resentment. And the people rarely think ourselves as the reason we are in this state - it's the compounding effect of slacking, ignorance, and even participation.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7

There's the consequence of not being grateful for the life that we are given.

When the Lord bring his people out of Egypt, the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it, and his anger was kindled...The end result is death - They all wonder in the dry desert for decades and only two out of the two million people reach the land of milk and honey. There are two ways we can react in a situation with too much to complain:

I. Recognize and fight while we can - it can go for the clean rally or pack our bags.

II. Ignorance bliss - act like it's all good but risk getting into un-reversible state.


Aung San Suu Kyi chooses the former, she won the world yet lost her family. Loving a country is many times a one-way thing and being a hero is a lonely life. It's not for everyone.

There is only is one thing for sure - don't let complaining dictates your life. Embrace compounding - compounding good habits (eat well, exercise well), compounding society responsibility (don't take a donation, don't throw rubbish on the street), compounding investments (consume less, create more job opportunity). When you start compounding the right thing in your life, either way, you choose you will sleep better, see hope in life and your future will be thankful for the choice you made today.
