    Think negative! Part 2

    In today's episode, we're going to share with you five more examples of negative thinking. Even though you should already have mastered one or two of these behaviors, you may find yourself in a situation where your creativity is challenged to use the full range of negative behaviors.

    Hold on to the past!

    Hold on to the past!

    After learning about the ten most successful negative thinking behaviors in the first two episodes, today we turn our attention to the benefits of holding on to the past.

    Time heals all wounds, they say. But that doesn't have to discourage you, because in this episode you'll learn how to protect yourself from it. This way you can tap into an inexhaustible source of self-compassion and have the added effect of not having to deal with the present.

    After showing you the benefits of negative thinking in the first two episodes and teaching you to glorify the past in episode 3, today we turn to the benefits of cursing the present.

    As early as 1966, the American author Dan Greenburg was already thinking about how to make a lasting mess of one's life.

    In the last four episodes, you learned about the benefits of thinking negatively out of purpose-pessimism, self-tormentingly holding on to the past, and cursing the present. Today we begin the practical part, where you will learn to put into practice the fears you have created in yourself.

    The advantage of alienating yourself from more and more people is obvious: the more people you make reject you, the worse you can feel.

    Judge only by money and appearance!

    Judge only by money and appearance!

    You can be proud of yourself because you are already halfway through our workshop.

    In the last episode, you started creating a rejection image of yourself. This includes feelings of guilt or just anger about money or your appearance. This always works, whether you are poor or rich, look fantastic or are no beauty. Let's look at some examples.
