Someway or other we all have this attitude of “Discounting the positives”. I am talking about not taking responsibility for the good things of our life. It’s a form of negative bias in thinking. This thought pattern is different than ignoring or overlooking the positivity in our life. Instead when good things happen, you might believe that it was luck or explain it away a circumstance. When you don’t acknowledge that your success is yours, you’ll start to feel a lack of control over your life.
If you fail to recognize how your hard work, good decision and skills help you accomplish your goals, your levels of motivation will decrease over time. This is known as learned helplessness. Cherish yourself with some positive vibe time after time.
