NLP negative motivator and the model.

in neurolingistic programming they say that most humans are wired to motivate away from a negative outcome (negative motivators) , as opposed to very few of us who are actually wired to motivate towards a positive outcome.
I am a negative motivator, and i found when modeling my goal that the thought that most spurred me to want to get it done was that the entire well- being and future of my family is at stake. “do or die” is how i phrased it. is this ok?

yes, there were some other little voices telling me i’m not good enough, i never finish anything, i have no time, etc, and replacing those thoughts with positive ones helped clear the way for action, but only the image of being destitute really gets my ass in gear.
