  1. Seek good advice from people who are experts. There are plenty of modern resources that you can get from books, seminars, workshops, audio, and video- best of all, it’s free. Experts offer a lot free courses. You just to find and invest time to get to hear their great advice.
  2. Look at the good side of things. Always try to look for the positive in every situation and avoid dwelling only on the negative. Being aware of the negatives will help you make sound decisions. This is another way of saying, be positive. When you consistently look at the good instead of the bad, you will develop a way of thinking that looks at the positive side of things.

  7. Look at all angles when facing problems. Listen and heed all the ideas of people who are willing to help you solve it and consider their valid points. Avoid confrontation at all costs. It’s always better not to start an argument than to go through it.
  8. Stop associating with negative people. When you closely associate with these kinds of people, sooner or later you may eventually acquire their attitude and way of thinking which can in turn just make you equally ‘toxic’.
  9. Do what’s right at all costs. Doing what is right will set you to the proper way of thinking, and the proper path. Doing what is necessary will eventually lead you to do more and more each day which can eventually allow you to meet and even exceed your goals.
