Growing up, I heard the term . or Positive Mental Attitude, repeatedly. Before you dismiss the term as a fad for personal development junkies, you should know that scholars also have a term for this; PA or Positive Affect. Negative Affect is stinkin’ thinkin’ or like my father, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, used to call it, “Thumb sucking.” No surprise that the acronym for Negative Affect is NA, which made me laugh out loud.
