Synopsis: This book is retired because the self-published edition is replaced by the new and improved edition, "THE SCIENCE OF POSITIVITY: Stop Negative Thought Patterns by Changing Your Brain Chemistry." Check it out! Negativity is natural, but you can rewire yourself to see the good around you. Cynicism is popular because it stimulates the brain chemicals that make you feel good. It stimulates dopamine by making the world feel predictable. It triggers serotonin by making you feel superior to “the jerks.” It triggers oxytocin by telling you who to trust. You pay a high price for these moments, unfortunately, because cynicism keeps you focused on problems instead of opportunities. Here is a way to PARE your cynicism with Personal Agency and Realistic Expectations. Here are 3-minute exercises that will build new thought habits in six weeks. Even if you're surrounded by a chorus of negativity, you can transcend cynicism and stimulate happy chemicals in new ways.
