If you read my Seeds*, you already know that I consider complaining a form of pollution. It’s amazing how much of it we do! In fact, I might even go so far as to say that complaint has become a form of ordinary social intercourse. Ouch.

Enter Will Bowen, and his Unity Church in Kansas City, Missouri. He got an idea to do what his assistant called a “doodad” Sunday. Purple bracelets, like the yellow ones of Lance Armstrong’s Live Strong campaign. She ordered them, and then the fun began.

Here’s how they work. Put your bracelet on. When you catch yourself complaining, criticizing, or gossiping switch it to your other wrist. The goal is to go 21 days complaint-free.

It takes the average person 4-8 months to get it done! Even the average, positive person like me.

How do you know when you’re complaining, criticizing or gossiping? There’s energy behind what you’re saying, emotional push or emotional pull.

Rev. Will started this a while ago. He’s now complaint-free, and he’s also a man with a vision! He wants 1% of the world to become a complaint-free zone. That’s 600,000,000—in English: six hundred million people.

Visit his website to find out how to get your own bracelet(s) and how to become a part of that vital 1%.

His book is terrific. This man is sowing consciousness. He’s showing us how to focus on what we want rather than what we don’t want, and it’s huge. Nearly six million people have taken up his challenge.

Go ahead, I double dare you.
