If you watch this video, then you'll know what conditional and biconditional statements are. Trust us. We're great at them.
and end up doing pretty much nothing with your life... because you listen to your critics
... then you'll never change their minds and be the successful person that's inside you.
Or something like that.
Mathematically said, consider the variable P to equal "I accept that I am a loser - thank
you critics <beeeep>"; And then consider the variable Q to be "Then I'll be a loser."
If P is true, then Q will be true. That is, if I listen to my detractors, then I'll
lose. So the If/then type of conditional statements
will come at you from all kinds of angles. Like... spin some things around by assuming
the opposites. If P is NOT true - that is, P is FALSE, that is, if you DONT listen
to your critics then you'll have the chance to change things - to NOT be a loser.
Does it work the other way around? Like ... if you'll have the chance to change your life,
to upgrade it - THEN will you listen to your critics? If Q is true, then will P be true?
In this case, maybe. No guarantees though.
that's called the Converse and is not even remotely related to the brand that once competed
So what if you know that P is false - that you WONT listen to your critics, then does
that mean Q will be false as well - ie that you'll be a winner and not a loser? No guarantees
but you get the idea. That's called the INverse.
And the last flavor in this little <dance?> is the CONTRAPositive and has nothing to do
with false pregnancy signs.
If Q is false, then is P also false? If you are NOT going to end up a total loser then
will you also listen to your critics?
