When I ask you, “how was your day?”, what is your response?
Do you immediately recount the negative experiences that have recently happened or are you able to identify some of the positive outcomes you may have experienced?
Most people dwell on the areas of their life that are not going well or where they have experienced negative emotions. This tendency is driven by the default wiring in your brain. Positive psychology and strength-based questions can help override your negative thinking and improve your capacity to create success in your life by focusing on what is going well for you now and building on your key strengths.
