The good news is that a very simple practice will systematically rewire your brain to replace your negativity bias with a positivity bias.What Caused the Problem Can’t Solve the Problem

What prevents you from stepping up to a difficult conversation? At what point does a conversation become a problem rather than an opportunity to clarify, collaborate, and connect?
