Today's world is filled with pessimism and negativity. Many people see only the drudgery of making a living. Every day that goes by is much the same as yesterday. While they wish and hope for a brighter future, they see no end to the worries of daily life. When they think at all about positive thinking, they see it as nothing more than a feel-good dictionary word that only exists in the dictionary. It comes across as vague, something unrealistic in today's world of high stress.
Successful traders leave emotions out when they trade stocks. The same should apply to every negative event you come across. The emotions of fear, anger, and resentment are the glue that burn those negatives into your mind. What you need to do is freeze your reaction. Stop it just when you feel like reacting in anger.
Too often you feel overwhelmed and helpless. But these are the reactions debts from your subconscious mind. Stewing about you won't make you rich. Once you've fantasized, you'll be more capable of finding actual solutions to the problem and doing something about it. If you've had a heated argument with your spouse and fantasized about giving him or her an anger management course, you can think about all the things you really love about him or her.
