How To Stop Negative Thoughts - Learning From A Near Death Experience With Barbara Ireland (AoL 079)

March 16, 2017

Show notes:

Society teaches us to look for the negative in situations. Just about everything that is popular today has some sort of conflict. From TV shows, news, and movies - we're always looking at what is wrong with the world around us. (Heck, I'm pretty sure that's how Trump got the nomination and won the election - he used the negative for his benefit.) It's very uncommon for people to natively want to look for the good in situations. Mainly because we're not programmed to be like that. However, as our guest in this session, Barbara Ireland talks about in this session, having that perspective isn't very useful if you're trying to do more than just get by or simply survive. Just like Clay mentioned in session 78, you're truly wanting to have a great life, then you're going to have to stop looking for what's wrong in every situation. You need to stop thinking negative thoughts. In this conversation, Laila and I discover what Barbara learned about negative thoughts and breaking out of them... all thanks to the near death experience she had. As always, thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
