The Power of Neutral Thinking with Dr. Lindsey Mitchell, Founder of The Pave Group

 

Norman Vincent Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinking is a 1950’s classic self-help book based on positive psychology, but Dr. Lindsey Mitchell, founder of Houston-based The Pave Group says a different take on the classic is a better fit for today’s top athletes and performers.

“This is a small twist on the concept,” Mitchell said on this episode of the Healthcare Podcast. “Positive thinking is a ‘Fake it until you make it’ approach, which is not necessarily a bad way to think. But our brains are getting smart enough to know we’re lying to ourselves.”

Mitchell explains that neutral thinking is fact-based thinking, and is helping propel athletes’ mental performance which in turn ups their physical performance; it’s all an inter-connected loop. “Instead of pushing yourself to be overly positive and not as genuine, you’re sticking to the facts,” she said. “It stays away from negative thinking, but you’re not swinging so far the other way that you’re not taking in the authenticity of the situation.”
