Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: The Old Country Dog

Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: The Old Country Dog

Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. We can be people who complain and do nothing else or people who stop complaining about what we allow. It’s like the story of the old farmer that was sitting on his porch with his old hound dog. The dog was sitting there howling. A stranger came by and asked the old farmer why the dog was howling and making so much noise. The old farmer

replied, “Because he’s sitting on a nail.” The stranger then asked, “Why doesn’t he get up?” The old farmer responded, “Because it doesn’t hurt badly enough!”

Many people will get in line and complain about the situation, but will not do much to change the circumstances. You must make the decision to stay away from the negative talkers who do nothing but complain. Talking about problems without offering solutions creates a lose/lose scenario. It is important that you do not allow yourself to get caught in the trap of complaining about a situation in your life without offering a solution to the problem. Be positive and excited about your future. Visit my website at for more information on turning your setbacks into greenbacks, and make this a great day!
