Let's go back in time a little bit. As a human race, we are historically hardwired to focus on the negative and threatening aspects of our lives rather than the positive ones. The rationale behind it is dated to ancient times and is fairly simple: in order to survive, we had to always keep an eye out for danger and maintain our guard. It was literally a matter of life and death. People who were more aware of the danger and focused on the negative things around them had a higher chance of surviving. Based on that, we can deduce that in order to switch the mind to positive thinking one should make some efforts.
