Quick Notes from Superhuman by Tynan: Positivity Habits
Positivity Towards Yourself
- Every time you have any negative thoughts, simply think of one positive aspect of the situation. For example: if your car gets towed, you can think about how now you’ll get credit card miles when you pay for the tow.
- After a period of 2-4 weeks, the habit will become almost automatic. Remain vigilant and make sure that you’re still doing it.
- After 3 months, you will have trained your brain to automatically come up with the positives.
Positivity Towards Others
- Whenever you find yourself thinking poorly of someone or in some sort of conflict with someone, force yourself to say to yourself, “Remember that this person is just doing their best and trying to be happy, just like me.”
