Overcome your negativity bias

Not every new or different thing is a threat to our survival. This negativity bias can chip away at our confidence. To combat the negativity bias:

  • Come up with 5 positive thoughts to counter every negative thought.
  • Let every positive thought sit for 20 seconds.
  • Acknowledge both good and bad emotions.
  • Do not try to suppress negative ones.
  • Label the emotions for what they truly are. Then move on.
