When I was a kid, I thought my mood came from something I had no control over. Now, I know it is my responsibility to maintain my good mood.
It is true that some external events affect my mood. When it happens, I have two options, think negative or think positive. As the video tells us, we tend to choose to think negative things. We are draw into negative by default. Probably, it comes from our survival mechanism I guess.
So, what we can do is to practice positivity, or train our mind to shift our attention to positive aspect of things.
It needs practice. It needs patience to train our mind. Our mind is very powerful and also very habitual. We need to change it for our mind serve us better. Most of the time, as Eckhart Tolle points out our mind uses us instead of we use our mind. It is craziness. The tool uses us instead of we use the tool. Quite interesting to know!
