Negativity breeds negativity. And what comes out of your mouth DOES matter. Michelle Moore discusses how if you focus on your thoughts and feelings of self-criticism, worry, and victimization, it is much easier for that way of thinking (and talking) to become habitual. Studies show that if you do something for twenty-one days in a row, it can become a habit. So what kind of habits do YOU want in your life? Michelle offers four tricks to avoid negativity: 1) show gratitude; 2) be aware of yourself; 3) start a new pattern; and 4) practice giving effort.
