Quitting is the best result you will get when you spend your time complaining, and wishing conditions were ripe for you to thrive. Complaining will make you feel better for a little while, and in some instances attract sympathy from friends, but it will make your situation deteriorate and keep you where you are.

Let your attitude be like that of the other salesperson. Instead of focusing on the impossibilities of the circumstances, this person chose to take control. This salesperson called headquarters and reported that their company was in for a bonanza. That’s an opportunity of a lifetime had been discovered, and they should get ready to engage the inhabitants of the islands in three ways. First, by teaching them about shoes, and second, by showing them how shoes are worn, and third, by selling shoes to them. This required a lot of work, but the company was willing to do the work and reaped a bountiful reward. This is in line with what King Solomon said, “Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.”

2) You become trapped: When you relinquish control, you become helpless and are left at the mercy of whatever situation you are facing. This is because complaining most of the time is rooted in the feeling of being a victim. You make yourself believe that you are a victim of circumstances beyond your control. Unfortunately, this is part of the truth. That's what makes it so believable. The whole truth is that you are never completely at the mercy of whatever circumstances surrounding you. The final outcome depends heavily on how you respond. If you choose to focus on the great potential dressed in difficulties, obstacles, and impossibilities, you will take charge and make the most of the situation. Instead of complaining about your work, colleagues, boss, and even your tools start focusing on the great opportunities hidden behind all these challenges, and you will be amazed at the outcome. Remind yourself that the final outcome hinges on how you choose to respond. In other words, you are in charge! You are a victor and not a victim. There is a great reward for you if you choose to deal with situations in this way.
