Do you ever find yourself stuck in a negative thought loop? Do bad work, relationship, or life experiences sometimes play on repeat in your head?
It’s not your fault. Human brains are wired pay more attention to the negative. It’s called negativity bias and it’s a natural, evolutionary response designed to keep us alive.
But there is hope. In fact, it’s possible to rewire your brain and develop the inner strength you need to overcome any negative thought, feeling, or life experience and grow from it — instead of getting stuck.
It all starts with understanding your brain and adopting a few key practices that help you cultivate lasting inner strength.
Rick Hanson’s Strategies for Building Inner Strength
Today’s guest is Dr. Rick Hanson, a psychologist and expert on the science of positive neuroplasticity. I’ve read all of his books including Hardwiring Happiness and Buddha’s Brain. His work has transformed the way I handle negative thoughts and experiences.
Rick’s latest book, Resilient, takes it even further. It provides science-backed methods to grow an unshakeable inner core of strength, calm, and happiness. Get ready to change your brain and life as you know it. Press play and discover how to:
- Turn fleeting feelings of confidence and calm into your permanent character makeup.
- Stop treating past trauma like it’s your destiny.
- Give your brain the ultimate multivitamin.
- Combat your brain’s natural negativity bias.
- Transform every experience into a learning opportunity.
