Ep. 32- Why Do I Always Focus on the Negative Side of Things?

Why Do I Always Focus on the Negative Side of Things?

Why do we take a good performance for granted and seem to spend way too much time thinking about mistakes and performances we regret? Why do we naturally tend to focus on the bad side of things? Well, in this episode I share how your brain processes information in a way that makes it so easy to hold onto the negative experiences and harder to focus on the good things. But the more we can learn to intentionally spend time on the good things in our dance life, the more resilient we become to the hard times. In this episode, we’ll cover why our brains naturally focus on the negative and what we can do about it.

Here are some highlights:

  • [1m 17s] Why our brain tends to focus on the bad
  • [3m 10s] Self-serving bias
  • [5m 28s] Evolution has taught us to notice the problems
  • [7m 19s] How to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be
  • [9m 57s] Action steps to shift your mindset and increase resilience
