6. Kill negative thoughts

Replace all your negative thoughts with positive ones. It’s a bad day? You can turn it around! People aren’t listening to you, it’s their loss. That girl didn’t say ‘hi’ to you? Wave hello anyway! It’s okay!

7. Focus on solutions

Whenever you face a problem do not panic, sit down and look towards a solution. Panicking will help no body – the only way to fix this is to think of a solution. Solving something will give you a lot more confidence than pondering over the problem.
