I found this brilliant TED talk given by Alison Ledgerwood and thought it would truly be helpful to share as food for thought in the search of strategies to stay positive during the divorce process.

You already know that positive thinking leads to a more fulfilling life. That much is clear. But how do you actually think positive when your mind is consistently stuck on the negative? and how can do it naturally… without using medication or alcohol?

Well…. that’s exactly what Alison Ledgerwood talks about in this TEDx talk today.

As a professional people watches (social psychologist) Alison Ledgerwood always wondered why the human mind swayed to the negative. She even noticed it herself when she was publishing papers. When her paper got rejected, it still weighed on her mind, even after a different paper was accepted.

What’s going on here? Why does failure seem to stick in our mind so much longer than a success?

Watch the brilliant talk below to find out why as well as the best strategy to deal with it.
