In today’s culture, which prizes busy-ness and sees stress as a status symbol, negativity and overwhelm are universal. They wreak havoc on our moods, bodies, and minds, not to mention our businesses and bottom lines
One reason that negativity is so insidious is that it can physically rewire our brain – which has ripple effects on the rest of our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. When we understand the neuroscience behind negativity, we can use it to wire our brains for positivity and success. That’s exactly what we’ll do in this program.
In addition to that, you will learn actionable, effective ways to combat negative thinking, rewire your brain for positivity, and create a culture of success. You’ll learn simple, one-step hacks that catalyze a domino effect of happier, more productive thinking and behavior. We’ll discuss internal and external triggers that catalyze the cycle of negativity, and how you can break that cycle, replacing it with one that is more powerful and productive. You’ll learn to establish new habits and work-arounds to help both yourself and those around you create a more positive, empowered mindset.
You’ll walk away from this presentation with a tried-and-true toolkit filled with science-backed ways you can recognize and squash negative thinking. You’ll learn to physically change your brain, overriding the negative thought patterns and replacing them with empowered beliefs
Negativity leads to a staggering loss of productivity in the workplace, and to immeasurable loss of well-being and happiness at home. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that negativity costs businesses $3 billion a year due to its harmful effects. Why? Negativity and overwhelm stifle problem-solving and creative thinking. They waste time, they result in poor quality work, and they can even damage your health, which leads to more sick time and diminished productivity.
Pessimism, overwhelm, lying, hopelessness, anger, bad attitudes, stress - those are all manifestations of a negative mindset that can wreak havoc on individuals, groups, families, and workplaces. When these things go unchecked, they result in depression, addiction, lower quality of life, abuse, and disease. Negative thinking is contagious: it only takes one person to bring it into a project, team, family, or workplace. Even if your team is made up of the most talented people in the industry, negativity and overwhelm can prevent them from working at their fullest potential.
Fortunately, there are ways to stop negativity in its tracks. No matter how ingrained it might be, you can reset your mindset, change your thoughts, and get the results you want. You can take steps to invite positivity, empowerment, optimism, and success into your life and workplace.
