3. Challenge your natural tendency to think negatively.
Our brains are prewired to focus on the negative. It’s a survival strategy that has been passed on through generations. We are naturally pulled toward scanning everything that could go wrong.
However, just because we think it doesn’t mean we need to believe it. Thoughts are not facts. Challenge these negative thoughts and list the reasons these negative thoughts are untrue. For example, let’s say you start your own business and fail on your first try. This doesn’t mean you are a failure. It simply means you need to try again, this time with a different approach.
