Identify What You Want to Change

It's important to first recognize personality downfalls or flaws that you want to change about yourself. If you’re a pessimist, would you like to become an optimist? If you’re shy, would you like to become more outgoing? Next, take a minute to understand how powerful you are at changing your brain each and every day. Every time you form a thought or choose a reaction, you’re creating a pathway in the brain. Every time you feel an emotion, a chemical reaction is taking place.

To change these, you simply have to change how you think and what you do -- which will affect how you feel.
