Emotions - Only One At A Time

"Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time." -Napoleon Hill

No emotion last for ever, we're constantly bombarded by them. According to Napoleon Hill, there are 7 major positive emotions (desire, faith, love, sex, enthusiasm, romance, hope) and 7 major negative (fear, jealousy, hatred, revenge, greed, superstition, anger).

"Here the law of habit [it takes 21 days for a habit to form] will come to your aid. Form the habit of applying and using the positive emotions! Eventually, they will dominate your mind so completely that the negatives cannot enter it." -Napoleon Hill

Since we only can feel one at a time, it's important for us to learn how to identify them and to put forth effort to prolong the positive ones and reduce the duration of the negative ones.
