If you're not familiar with EMDR, it's used to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other painful memories/beliefs. In studies it's been used to eliminate PTSD in WW2 and Vietnam War Veterans in fewer than sometimes 5 sessions, where traditional therapy would take years. This is very useful if you have painful memories/beliefs that are holding you back. All you do is focus on the painful memory in detail, make it as vivid as possible, try to bring all the pain to the surface, and when you apply this all the pain will be eliminated from that memory/belief. As you go through each eye movement you'll notice that the negativity gets harder and harder to feel, but keep trying. It's kind of like stirring up a pool with dirt and leaves at the bottom so they float to the top and then they're removed. It doesn't take away the memory, but when you think about it, you'll feel virtually no negativity toward it.
I highly suggest doing this with not only all negative memories, but all negative ideas as well. Pretty soon you'll find it almost impossible to feel any negativity.
This information in this paragraph isn't necessary for you to use it, but for anyone who is curious as to how it works I'll explain it here. When you think of something, your eyes move different ways and access different parts of the brain. For example when you're thinking of a feeling your eyes move to the bottom left. When you're remembering something visual your eyes move to the top right. What this process does is correctly links up different quadrants of the brain to where the negative feelings are eliminated.
You have to watch this video in full screen mode, and you can use this video any time that negativity pops up.

Once you've done it a handful of times, you won't need the video and you'll be able to do it anywhere.
I'll leave this here if you're interested in the specific brain quadrants
