The first thing I tell clients when starting therapy, is to change their negative thoughts by practicing positive self talk. It doesn't matter what they come in for depression, anxiety, relationship problems, addiction, eating disorders etc. Changing your mindset has the power to change your life and become anything you set out to be. It'll make your life be more positive, it'll motivate you to do what you desire to do. It'll inspire you to do all what you truly want to do in life. So to answer the question, yes positivity does work. Optimize your life with even just the simple technique of telling yourself something positive each morning. Or reading inspirational quotes. These are some of my favorite.
