Examples of common positive anchors include:-

Negative anchors tend to induce less useful emotional states like anger, frustration, fear, procrastination and apathy.

Positive anchors tend to induce positive and useful emotional states such as happiness, excitement, enthusiasm, focus, the feeling of power and energy and resourcefulness.
