Professor Martin Seligman, one of the founders of positive psychology, conducted a significant number of researches to prove that this type of psychotherapy can help people live a pleasant life by bringing out their strengths. It makes individuals feel happier by encouraging them to live with a positive philosophy.
We has gathered 7 fundamental rules that can help you fight depression, have better physical health, and higher achievement.
1. The mirror rule
The rule is quite simple – it means that every single person in your life is your mirror. They reflect your own personality, character traits, even the ones you don’t like. The characteristics you see in people around you can give you the opportunity to know yourself better and then grow.
All the qualities you admire the most or hate in others are your own.
For example, if someone treats you with disrespect, then that’s how you probably act toward other people, but don’t pay much attention to it. If you want to change anything in relationships, start with yourself – be the change you want to achieve.
2. The power of choice
Everything that is happening in your life is a result of the choices you make through your life. Your choices in friends, lifestyle, and belief all form your personality. We are the authors of our own destiny.
If you are dealing with a boring person and always find yourself trying to solve their problems, then that’s what you prefer to be doing at that particular moment in your life. It’s you who lets it happen. You can complain to no one.
