RE­FLECT ON THIS

“It’s im­por­tant to be aware of your strug­gles, but it’s also im­por­tant to stay pos­i­tive,” ex­plains Mat­tingly. “Re­search shows that neg­a­tive in­for­ma­tion has a longer-last­ing and greater im­pact on us than pos­i­tive in­for­ma­tion. For ex­am­ple, if we are given a list of 20 pieces of feed­back and one is neg­a­tive and 19 are pos­i­tive, we tend to ru­mi­nate over the one bad one. The ques­tions in this sec­tion are meant to re­mind you that ‘You’re good enough, you’re smart enough and, dog­gone it, peo­ple like you.’ Don’t ever for­get what makes you a good per­son.”
