You must free your mind of all distractions, you cannot focus unless you and your mind are in the present moment. It is no good thinking about what you will have for dinner, or worrying about the argument you had earlier with the next door neighbour. Let it all go, so as you can be left alone with your own thoughts.
This may seem scary for some, as not everyone is used to spending time alone with their thoughts, many of you will have busy lives, or you may be worried that if you think too much, you will open a doorway to some hidden trauma held deep within your mind.

Staying positive in the face of adversity can be very difficult and extremely daunting for most people. But it need not be. Particularly if you can learn to cultivate a positive attitude within yourself. How individuals deal with problems in life or cope with obstacles, very much depends on their personality. People tend to fall into two categories: Those who see life as a constant battle; where everything that can go wrong will. They believe that they are always the victim of someone elses malice, and unwilling to accept responsibility for their actions or that they might have played a part in the problems they are experiencing. Or, someone who accepts and understands that their life will go through ups and downs; And that it happens to everyone. They believe that the difficulties they face are part of the growing up process, a life lesson, that is a challenge to be met and overcome. And by doing so, they will grow stronger and wiser as individuals.
Whichever category you fall into. There is no doubt, that the roots of your attitudes and beliefs about life, that make up your personality, will almost always lie in early life. We are heavily influenced by those experiences in our formative years; and the people who had a hand in how our characters developed.

As individuals we all deal with stress, difficult situations and people differently. How quick we are to anger or how easily we are provoked, can depend on a number of factors. One is personality; Inherited personality traits and environment. Another can be learned behaviour. For example, those people who come from family backgrounds in which anger is often demonstrated; will believe that this is normal. They may also see it as a very effective way of getting what they want.
Though I believe we all have our own inner moral compass which tells us when something is not right, there will be some immature or emotionally weak individuals who will use aggressive tactics to get what they want, without thought or care for another person. Rather then using gentle persuasion or debate.
