Why Positive Thinking Can Make Stress Worse – And What You Could Be Doing Instead [Soul Led Leaders Episode 14]

In today's third episode in our burnout-prevention mini-series, I want to talk about why positive thinking can make stress worse, and what you could be doing instead!

This one is for you if you have an inner critic that has been highly resistant to becoming a genuine cheerleader, or you ever find yourself swamped in that negative self-talk that drags you down, that increases your stress levels, that makes you feel overwhelmed, and it holds you back from becoming the leader you were born to be, and making an even bigger difference in the world.

What You'll Cover Today On Why Positive Thinking Can Make Stress Worse:

  • Why positive affirmations and positive thinking can make stress worse
  • Why it's not your fault! Hint: it's down to body-chemistry and demystified neuroscience
  • The stress cycle - and how this is at the root of all this
  • How this triggers burnout, without us even realising - and the role of the two types of fear
  • How flip-flops trigger the backfire effect to trigger internal conflict
  • My super-easy sixty-second strategy for burnout prevention
