Eliminate and minimize the negativity within your mind. Focus on the positives of each situation. It may be hard to see, but if you look hard enough the positivity is there. If you allow it, negativity will live in your head rent free and take up most of the space. Of course, as it takes up space, you leave no room for positivity. An abundance of negativity will also cause you to see and start everything with NEGATIVITY. You will never see the welcoming of positivity if your attention is on the negative thoughts. Thinking negatively doesn't prepare you for disappointment, it creates disappointment.
