It’s amazing how positive, negative statements can be.
Double negatives intensify the negation so much that they cultivate positive emotions.
- Never quit quitting
- Never say never
Conversely, it’s amazing how negative, positive words can be. In fact, they can end up making one feel worse.
Double positives intensify positivity so much that they overstretch limitations and have deleterious effects.
Take these two motivational sayings for instance:
- Keep pushing
- Keep on keeping on
There is a positive correlation between how we think and what we do.
Thoughts predetermine action and willpower. The neurocognitive boost the body and mind need next is just good practice.
