False positivity

Don't fool yourself into thinking you’ve already achieved a goal, even though you haven’t, then you won’t try to achieve it, even though you should.

Consider this example. You’re overweight, you know it, and you don’t want to be. The false positive mode of self-talk would say, I’m in perfectly good shape. I don’t need to change anything. But something tugs at your mind from inside. It’s the nagging, persistent knowledge that you’re fooling yourself.

The true positive mode of self-talk : I want to lose ten pounds, and I know what I need to do to achieve it.
