  • Positivity Project Defined

    Posted by Roxann Wheeler on 8/30/2018


    "Intelligence plus character - that is the true goal of education." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    The Positivity Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping America's youth build stronger relationships by recognizing the character strengths in themselves and others. The premise is simple, but the results will be profound. Together, we will help create stronger citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country by internalizing the belief that "Other People Matter.

    Positive psychology's 24 character strengths serve as the foundation of The Positivity Project's approach. Character is more than just behavior- it's what is inside all of us. And reasearch shows that teaching children about their own positive character, rather than just positive behaviors, has an enduring prosocial impact.

    In today's rapidly changing world, strengths of character must be intentionally cultivated at an early age. It is critical to ensure that our mental, emotional, and moral capacities grow alongside our advance in technology. And, we must make it a priority to educate our youth on how to tap into their character strengths- especially when times are tough.

    What is the #OtherPeopleMatter Mindset? 

    Take the #OPM Self-Reflection Questionnaire!!

    1. Do I recognize the good in other people?
    2. Am I aware that everything I say or do, including social media, affects other people?
    3. Do I support others when they struggle?
    4. Do I cheer people on when they succeed?
    5. Am I present when giving people my attention?

    If you answered, YES, to each of these 5 questions then you test POSITIVE for the #OtherPeopleMatter Mindset!
