Positive psychology emphasizes self-reliance in emotional control and confidence and relationship wellness—which prevents problems. Traditional psychology concentrates on the problem (after it has occured, remember), and teaches coping mechanisms. This isn't a bad approach, and some need expert psychology for deep seeded issues. But most people, like you, simply need to know how to create more GOOD (positive experiences) in their lives.
GOOD prevents problems.
GOOD improve relationships
GOOD generates mental and emotional strength and self-reliance.
GOOD feels good.
But what if I already have problems?
Positive methods are also proving to be the best approach to solving problems that already exist. Problems invite pain and frustration. If you focus on the problem, you remain close to the pain. Positive techniques eliminate the pain and frustration because they move you away from the pain. So whether you want great relationships and mental and emotional self-reliance, or to solve problems, positive methods are the more effective and enjoyable approach to achieve greater emotional confidence, closer connections, and more love and happiness. Empowering, isn't it?
Positive psychology, focusing on emotional self-reliance techniques, saves you money. You don't spend money on problems you don't have (positive psychology has proven to prevent problems). But when problems happen, it's much cheaper to solve them with positive methods and experiences than it is to repeatedly visit professionals that primarily focus on the problem. Remember, focusing on the problem keeps us near the pain and frustration.
Positive psychology emphasizes empowering you so YOU have the ability to prevent and solve problems, but most importantly, you FEEL BETTER by focusing on positivity rather than the problem.
