Change your perspective and minimize your time spent on negative emotions

Can you constantly see your state of being as a blessing?

In this Mindvalley Podcast episode, we’re sharing an incredible A-Fest talk by one of our best-selling teachers, Eric Edmeades. He shares how changing your mental framework can transform your life, and your interactions with others.

If you want to improve your life, mastering your state of being is the surest way to do it. However, our mental and emotional states are often influenced by external factors that are (seemingly) beyond our control.

Eric Edmeades asks: if you want to master your state in the present, which is easier to “clean up”? The past, the present, or the future?

His answer is the key.
