Your mind is your most powerful asset, and you must be able to control it. Fear and worry are not options for being a great lover. Confidence in yourself is your responsibility and is depend- ent on how your mind is conditioned to perceive the life around you. Conditioning your mind for positive results not only includes positive actions, but also includes guarding your mind from con- stant negativity or stress. Everyone is different so you have to be the judge of what is stressful to you. The constant monotony of most local news stations and their endless reports of murder and car theft is enough to drive one up the wall, hence negative cond i- tioning. One may automatically perceive local news as bad news and negative. It is one’s choice to do so. Someone else may see the same news program as informative and a privilege.
Being around negative, unhappy, or stressed out people can also stress you out. Keep in mind though, life is only how one perceives it to be through the identity he or she perceive them- selves to have.
