When you get home at the end of the day and someone asks “How was your day?”, how do you respond?

Have you ever said “Everything that could possibly go wrong did”.

Or something similar?

If so, is that true?

How many things did you do that day?

If you break down every individual action you took, they’ll have been thousands.

How many actually went wrong?




Whatever the number, I’d wager it was actually a single digit percentage of the things you did that went wrong.

The overwhelming majority went fine.

As expected.

Instantly forgotten.

The human brain being much better at remembering and focusing on the less good stuff.

That natural inclination then compounded by decades of hearing other people talk that way.

So, what do we do about it?

If we’ve trained our self one way, the only answer to change that is to train ourselves the other way.

Deliberate practise in doing the opposite.

I would literally bet you everything I owned that, if you were to spend a couple of minutes every day writing down 10 things that went well that day………

You’d feel very differently in a month’s time.

Same as any skill, starts hard and we get better with practise.

The first few days it will take ages to do.

But stick with it.

Your brain will tell yourself “That doesn’t count” or “That’s a given really”.

But end of the month, you’ll bang out 10, no problems.

Or, at the end of the month you’ll have done nothing with this and still feel the same (if you want to feel considerably better in many way this time next month, with a Money Back Guarantee, here’s where you’ll make that happen –> www.myrise.co.uk/apply) .

Much love,
