Trying to Think Positive May Be Hurting You

Do you find yourself trying to think positive to get yourself out of emotional and mental states that don’t feel pleasant? Do you use affirmations to convince yourself that things aren’t the way they are? If you regularly use positive thinking as an escape from your reality, this episode will help you see that trying to think positive can be counter productive. 

In this episode, I show you how this way of thinking is actually increasing suffering because you can’t change your thinking with more thinking. I tell you what you can do instead of affirmations and NLP techniques that will allow you to be at peace.  

If you try to trick yourself into thinking life is different than it is in order to be happy, this episode is for you. I’ll show you how you can access happiness and relaxation easily, without tricking your brain.
