What is the Positician Vision?
We are determined
to develop communities of trust where we share all our experiences, stand by each other, and grow together.
I’ve been accused of wearing rose-colored glasses. More than once I was told my enthusiasm “could
sell ice to an Eskimo." I don't want to sell ice to an Eskimo! I want to sell joy, passion, comfort, Life! —
I want to show you other points of view so you can decide how you want to see things. It may change the degree on
your compass – slightly or drastically... or maybe not at all. But I want you to have a choice of what color shades
invite you to experience the full spectrum of Life, the full spectrum of being human. See the whole, then pick the
part. Narrow your focus, but not your mind. Experience the magnitude of who you were created to be. Create choice, then choose.
Every situation, no
matter how grim, can have a Silver Lining. We do have choices, but sometimes it takes an outsider to point that out. Positicians
are trained to listen, point to the positive, and teach others to do the same.
Henri Nouwen, in his book The Wounded Healer, describes it best: "When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find
that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds
with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us
in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of
our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."
The Positician culture is based on trust and empathy, where everyone's voice is heard,
and pain is comforted. It's all in the way we speak and listen to one another, offering simple, priceless gestures
of kindness. Always, everywhere. Treat everyone like they're wearing a sign that says, "Make me Feel Important."
Build a win-win world.
