It seems to me that you have done so well with so many resolutions, even the ones where you say you've failed but have done so much towards succeeding even if you don't feel like giving yourself success for credit, that you must have done better than 99% of resolution-makers. Please recognise this at the same time as striving for the best job you can do.

Try to convert every work-related whinge into a positive thing

Surely a working definition of a happy-go-lucky person (certainly a good thing to be!) might be someone who can convert every whinge of all sorts into positive things?

Happy-go-lucky sounds to me as though it's more to do with not being bothered in the first place than making a conscious effort to avoid unhelpful patterns of thought, but maybe that's just a quibble.

I don't think whinging is harmful per se, I think sometimes it's a useful pressure-valve; but I don't want to just sit around whinging if I can change things instead.
