By default, most people’s brains dwell on the negative – what they do not want to have happen – as opposed to the good things that could happen. Psychologists claim that people make their own reality. Those who think negatively will experience negative outcomes. Conversely, if you think positively, good things will happen. That’s the hopeful theory that trainer and consultant Laura Goodrich presents. She details how you can reorganize your thinking to be more positive and benefit greatly from the results. If you can follow her advice – somewhat dimmed by the book’s awkward phrasing and lack of organization – and utilize her numerous exercises and tools, you are almost certain to improve your mental state and to think more optimistically in the future. getAbstract recommends the author’s sensible intent to help you and your team become more positive.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why people naturally think about the worst outcomes, not the best;
- Why this is bad and
- How you can rewire your brain to think positively.
