To be truly effective in life, apply positive-thinking strategies not only to day-to-day thoughts, actions, and emotions, but also at a deeper level, to firmly ingrained character traits.
Emotions are the first signals generated by your body and mind when there is something in your life to which you need to pay attention. Catch negative emotions quickly, at the source, and use the energy they generate to motivate you to act.
Take control of your emotions—you will then be able to look at a problem rationally.
