KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Complaint Free World movement, which began as a simple lesson, is now 10 years old and going stronger than ever.
In July, 2006, Will Bowen was teaching a class on prosperity at a small church in Kansas City, Mo. Bowen had the idea of giving everyone a purple rubber bracelet as a tool to help them become mindful of when they complain so they could stop. His idea exploded around the world!
Bowen was featured on Oprah, The Today Show, ABC World News Tonight, CBS Sunday Morning and in thousands of other media outlets.
"I told everyone to switch their bracelet with every spoken complaint to the other wrist. And, to keep switching with every complaint until they'd gone 21-consecutive days without complaining forming a new habit. I had no idea this would not only change my own life but also positively impact the lives of millions of people in 106 countries."
That was ten years ago. What's transpired during the first, full decade? Bowen says, "We still send out about 100,000 bracelets every year and half of those are outside the United States. I think it's because no matter where on Earth you live, complaining is a problem and we all want to hear less of it. And, this is a simple, practical way to stop complaining that's worked for thousands of people."
"When this all started," Bowen continues, "We set a goal of reaching 60 million people (at that time, 1% of the World's population) and we're almost 20% of the way to that goal."
When asked, "Did you think you'd still be doing this ten years later?" Bowen responds, "No, of course not. But I'm so glad this has happened and that we've been able to positively impact people's lives all over the world. I've had people tell me how the Complaint Free program has increased business profits, saved marriages, healed relationships with friends and children, helped people overcome chronic pain and so much more. And, we're just getting started. We're going to hit that 60 million goal and have a major, positive impact on our world."
