7 Reasons Why We Go Negative, and How To Go Positive Instead

2,983 views

Published on

Negativity is natural because our brain zooms in on problems. We feel good when we solve them, but our brain immediately shifts to the next problem. You miss out on positivity when you see the world through this lens. Fortunately, you can build a corrective lens that lets in the good that your negative lens has screened out. You can reduce the stress / anxiety of cortisol and stimulate your dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin in new ways.

7 Reasons Why We Go Negative, and How To Go Positive Instead

  1. 1. 7 Reasons Why We Go Negative Loretta Graziano Breuning, PhD Inner Mammal Institute And How To Go Positive Instead
  2. 2. Our brain sees the world through a negative lens it zooms in on bad and skims past good
  3. 3. Negativity is natural, but you can build a corrective lens that lets in the positive
  4. 4. The Science of Positivity Stop Negative Thought Patterns By Changing Your Brain Chemistry InnerMammalInstitute.org
  5. 5. The dog poop paradox an oops makes people mad but the enormous progress never made people happy
  6. 6. Why does your brain go there?
  7. 7. 1. Your brain is designed to learn from pain Pain is a surge of cortisol, the “stress chemical.”
  8. 8. Cortisol connects all the neurons active at that moment That wires you to turn it on faster in the future. Your ancestors survived because they anticipated pain and acted to avoid it.
  9. 9. 2. Mammals evolved social pain The mammal brain rewards you with oxytocin when you find safety in social support. It alarms you with cortisol when you wander away from that social support.
  10. 10. The mammal brain constantly weighs the anticipated pain of social isolation against the anticipated pain of lost opportunity
  11. 11. 3. Cortisol feels awful because that works The bad feeling commands your attention until you do what it takes to make it stop
  12. 12. If you relieved cortisol by climbing a tree, the good feeling of relief wires you to scan for trees If you make it stop by eating pizza, that wires
 you to scan for pizza. Distraction doesn’t protect you from predators but it relieves the anticipation of pain temporarily. Then you seek another distraction.
  13. 13. 4. Your brain is constantly filtering information 
 because the world floods our senses
 with more detail than we could process Your filter is not conscious: it’s the neural pathways built from past rewards and pain
  14. 14. The electricity in your brain flows like water in a storm, finding the paths of least resistance
  15. 15. 5. Disappointment triggers cortisol
  16. 16. The mammal brain rewards you with the good feeling of dopamine when you expect a reward, but it alerts you with cortisol when the reward doesn’t come
  17. 17. 6. Social comparison
  18. 18. The mammal brain rewards you with the good feeling of serotonin when you see yourself in the position of strength It alerts you with cortisol when it sees you in the weaker position
  19. 19. 7. Your brain builds its superhighways in youth
  20. 20. - We humans are more helpless & vulnerable at birth than other creatures - Crying is a big cortisol surge; it’s one of our only pre-wired behaviors - So the foundational circuit in your brain is a sense of urgent needs you are powerless to meet
  21. 21. A young brain is full of myelin, which coats neurons so they conduct electricity at super speeds
  22. 22. Each brain sees the world through the lens of its myelinated neurons our myelin years are before age 8 and during puberty
  23. 23. Our brain is not designed for happiness. It evolved to motivate survival behaviors.
  24. 24. Negative experience builds big pathways, which is why your electricity tends to go there.
  25. 25. You can build a positive pathway to give your electricity a new place to flow
  26. 26. Spend 1 minute searching for good 3 times a day for 45 days
  27. 27. You will build a new lens that lets in the positive
  28. 28. You may think “if all that good were there, I would have done this already”
  29. 29. That’s your natural negativity
  30. 30. Fortunately, you don’t have to rescue orphans from burning buildings and perform in Carnegie Hall to create positivity
  31. 31. You can build a new pathway in your brain just by noticing the absence of dog poop on the path in front of you
  32. 32. New pathways build from repetition, emotion & youth
  33. 33. Youth is fleeting. Emotion leads to pizza. Repetition is your friend
  34. 34. Carving a new trail through your jungle of neurons takes tremendous effort
  35. 35. And after all that effort, your new trail soon disappears into the undergrowth. This is why old paths are so tempting.
  36. 36. But if you slash through the new trail every day, a new pathway will build
  37. 37. It’s hard to go positive when everyone around you is going negative
  38. 38. Going negative brings social rewards
  39. 39. You may think you’ll be weak or isolated if you go positive
  40. 40. But once you build your new positive lens, you’ll be glad you did!
  41. 41. You can PARE your negativity with Personal Agency & Realistic Expectations
  42. 42. Personal Agency
 
 is taking pleasure in choosing your next step
  43. 43. Results are unpredictable,
 but you always get to choose your next step
  44. 44. Realistic Expectations awareness that a cortisol surge is not a real survival threat
  45. 45. You will end up with cortisol because our efforts often fall short of our expectations You can find the good without depending on immediate visible rewards. Most of human progress came from efforts that did not bring immediate visible rewards.
  46. 46. People like to find external positives because it’s easier that finding internal ones
  47. 47. So here are some external positives
  48. 48. on my website https://innermammalinstitute.org/positivity
  49. 49. Each of us
 sees the world through the lens we built without effort or intent from our unique individual past experience
  50. 50. You can build a new filter to let in the good that your old filter ignores
