Proven Techniques to Increase Positivity, Reduce Fear, and Boost Success.

Learn to transform your perspective and lead with positivity. 

Do you wonder why so many of us are negative, pessimistic, cynical, and skeptical? Our current environment and the ever-increasing rate of societal change combine to all but ensure negativity.

But there is a way to break free from this negativity, and I’m going to show you how.

Allow me to make the case for The Negativity Fast, beginning with why so many of us are so negative. The explanation goes beyond the pandemic and has been building for far longer than you might believe.



Over half a century ago, the futurist Alvin Toffler forecast that unless humans could quickly learn to control the rate of change in society, that we would be “doomed to a massive adaptational breakdown.”

More recently, Yuval Noah Harari added his view on the rate of change, offering this: “Our newfound knowledge leads to faster economic, social, and political changes—which leads to even faster and greater upheavals. Consequently, we are less and less able to make sense of the present or forecast the future.”

Yuval Noah Hurari

I call this Accelerating Constant Disruptive Change – or – the ACDC environment.

You and I experience this rate of change as stress and anxiety because it is challenging to make sense of our ever-changing world. The negativity around us has never been more obvious.

The American Psychiatric Association’s Healthy Minds Poll found that one in four people anticipated more stress at the start of 2023. That number is up from 2022 and includes everything from personal finances to mental health. It’s important to remember that it is possible to be stressed and anxious over a number of these common stressors.

Add to this list, what we describe as the ACDC environment:

  • Doom-scrolling on social media 
  • A hot war in Europe

  • The highest inflation in over 40 years

  • A 20% increase in the cost of groceries

  • Perhaps the worst political divisiveness since the Civil War.

  • Increasing crime rates and homelessness in our cities.
  • You can add your own list of concerns to this one...

You can be afraid of all of this. You can feel negative about it. And you can even bury your head in the sand and pretend nothing is happening. But where will it lead you?

We've reached a point where getting rid of negativity isn't a “nice-to-have” — it is a critical need. At least if we want to be able to enjoy life, quickly adapt to ever-changing circumstances, and grow—personally, mentally, and financially. I want you to know that you don’t have to spend so much time being negative. I want you to know you can do something about your well-being. I know this to be true, because at one time, not only was I negative, I was also angry.

My First Negativity Fast

One day I visited one of my favorite law school professors before class to complain about politics and geopolitics. I was concerned—and largely negative—about everything, all the time. My professor suggested that I should let go of all of my anger and my negativity.

He told me it wasn’t helpful, and that I would have a greater and more positive impact on my family and the world if I was ready to let go of my negativity.

I wasn’t ready to make that change. But about 6 months later:

  • I canceled every political newspaper, newsletter, and magazine.
  • I turned off cable news.
  • I started to distance myself from negative people in my life. 

I called this process, The Negativity Fast.

The Negativity Fast will help you spend less time in a negative state and more time in a positive one. This isn’t any woo-woo approach where you tell yourself to be positive. Instead, The Negativity Fast is a science-based approach to some very simple yet effective strategies.

  • You'll learn how to identify triggers of negativity in your environment
  • Discover mindfulness techniques that shift your focus.

  • Understand how to build a support system that amplifies positivity.

I also cover a wide range of topics and concepts such as:


talking yourself into a negative state



empathy and how to lie to yourself



how to stop complaining



the awesome power of gratitude



reframing negative events



living with political divisiveness



wanting & the perils of social media



how to change your state



minding mindfulness



how to forget your problems & concerns

I believe removing your negativity and ingesting more positive fare is of critical importance today. These strategies will ensure that your Negativity Fast works for you.

I've sent early-bird copies of The Negativity Fast to a few bestselling authors, international speakers, and high-achieving entrepreneurs. Here's what they have to say about it:

"Thank you for tackling this topic, Anthony Iannarino! I desperately needed this book and love how it combines the intellectual, emotional, and practical causes and components of negativity. Chapter 7 was particularly poignant and I’m not only ready to become post-political, I’m excited to start my own Negativity Fast immediately! This is a must-read to not only survive, but thrive emotionally, in today’s often toxic environment."

Mike Weinberg

Author of New Sales. Simplified. and Sales Management. Simplified.

“This is a timely and important work, easily one of the books I’d most recommend to all my friends.  It specifically gives dozens and dozens of practical, tactical exercises to help you reduce and eliminate negativity from your system and replace it with positivity.  Very pragmatic, extremely useful, everyday advice.  Do yourself a big favor and get yourself a copy.  Highly recommended!!!”

Ken Wilber
