When Positive Thinking Doesn't Work..

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

I'm the first to preach positivity.


Mindset is key in this life. Let me give you the run down on positive thinking and a better quality of life real quick..


It's been proven that optimism improves immunity, boosts confidence, helps you to live longer, and can even make you more successful.


Dang, I want some of allllll that.


Take a look at the findings of this study;


In the December 2005 issue of Psychological Bulletin, scientists examined studies of over 275,000 people and found that the happiest people owe their success, in part, to their optimism and positive outlook. Dr. Lyubomirsky, head researcher from UC Riverside concluded, “When people feel happy, they tend to feel confident, optimistic and energetic and others find them likeable and sociable. Happy people are thus able to benefit from these perceptions.


I could honestly write 5 pages on the power of positivity, but I'll save that for my book someday ;)


The point here is that positivity is a necessary component of a happy and fulfilled life.


It doesn't always come naturally. Often, people are caught up in a pattern of incredibly negative thinking- and even worse is that they really aren't aware of it.
