Allison Ledgerwood is a social psychologist who describes herself as a professional people watcher. Through her research she has learned that negative thoughts have a significant impact on how we perceive our lives and the world. Failures seem to stick in our minds far more readily than the positive events that happen to us. Once the loss concept gets stuck in our minds, we tend to stay with that mindset. In this video she explores the reasons for this and how we can work compassionately with our minds so as to make the best of negative situations.
