What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • How a culture of negativity surrounds us, so much so that by the time most children turn five years of age, they have heard eight negative expressions for every positive one they encounter
  • Why sweating the small stuff is counterproductive and unhealthy on multiple levels, especially if we allow it to occur for a prolonged period of time or to manifest itself in our daily lives
  • How there is opportunity and possible positive outcome in everything that happens in our lives right now, even while stuck in a traffic jam, even during illness or other terrible situations
  • How we handle things better when we believe that everything happens for the right reason and spend little or no time sweating the small stuff
  • The reality that you have surrendered control when you allow the actions of another person to change your emotional state negatively or you dwell on their actions without regard to your health and well-being
  • Reasons that it is unhealthy to look at situations continually with a negative perspective
  • Why we should replace negative energy with positive energy throughout our lives
  • The importance of having lots of gratitude in your life and accepting that things happen for a reason
  • How sweating the small stuff creates situations that allow minor inconveniences or events to transition into difficult and challenging situations that may bring you down, make you ill, and increase your stress
