In all fairness to Will Bowen, I really should include an excerpt of his book, “A Complaint-Free World: How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted.”

If you don’t like something, change it.
If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
Don’t complain.
–Maya Angelou

In your hands you hold the secret to transforming your life. Big words? Yes, but I’ve seen it work for many, many people. I’ve read their e-mails and letters and taken their phone calls. People have used the simple concept of putting a purple silicone bracelet on their wrist and then switching from wrist to wrist until they have managed to go 21 consecutive days without complaining, criticizing, or gossiping. In so doing, they have formed a new habit. By becoming conscious of and, thereby, changing their words, they have changed their thoughts and begun to create their lives by design. People just like you have shared stories with me of chronic pain relieved, relationships healed, careers improved, and having become an overall happier person. ….
It’s no accident that you have picked up this book [Will, your book arrived at my door via UPS. I wouldn’t have picked it up]. You have answered your soul’s call to stop being part of the problem and to become part of the solution. You can change the world by simply becoming an example of positive change. You can bear the torch for a bright future for our children by taking this challenge and staying with it, however long it takes, until you succeed. You can be a healing cell in the body of humanity.
