Get a sneak peek of what you’ll learn in the Power of Emotions Challenge.
Myth 1: Some people are born optimists. In fact, research shows that while genes play some role in optimism and pessimism, they are not strongly inherited traits. You can learn to be more hopeful.
Myth 2: My history is my destiny. Sure, your past colors the way you see the present. You can acknowledge and accept that truth without letting it dictate how you handle your emotions today. You can change and grow throughout life.
Myth 3: Positive thinking means ignoring reality. Nope. Instead, it means approaching each situation with an open mind — and a willingness to question old assumptions and worst-case beliefs.
Myth 4: Feeling angry or sad means I've failed. Everyone faces adversity. Sadness, anger and other negative emotions can be appropriate responses. Managing your emotions means facing pain, not ignoring it.
