~ Sri Ram

Why do some people seem to adapt to change and setbacks so easily, while some people become very discouraged and give up?  The people who adapt have learned how to master their attitude and their thoughts.  It takes some practice, but you can learn to shift your negative thinking and rebound from life’s challenges.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.  Please see my article on CBT to find out how cognitive behavioral therapy works.
