Andy Grammer has been called, “too positive.”
In fact he wrote a song called “Naive” about the fact he’s been called “too positive,” for so long.

It comes down to perspective, which I often find popping up when chatting with clients. Someone will be in the middle of telling me what’s been going on and causing them sleepless nights, I stop them and start my “okay, I see that, but what if you looked at it this way…” The amount of, “Wow, I never thought of that,” I get in response is so telling.
If you’re so focused on what can go wrong, the weight of whatever it is you’re going through will feel so much heavier and cause so much more stress than if you flip the script.
So, why do we automatically feel like the absolute worst of the worst is going to happen in every and all situations? Negative Bias.
An article from the Very Well Mind states:
As humans, we tend to:
*Remember traumatic experiences better than positive ones.
*Recall insults better than praise.
*React more strongly to negative stimuli.
*Think about negative things more frequently than positive ones.
*Respond more strongly to negative events than to equally positive ones.
Are there ways to change this? Well – it’s up to you. It takes training in order to rewire how your brain works and what it focuses on. But, from my personal experience, you CAN change it…over time.Lets work together and I can help you learn how. DM me today for more info
