We work here on increasing well-being, raising your happiness set-point and increasing you emotional set-point. We work here on going from good to better and on to best. The focus is not on what is negative, wrong, non-resolved, or needing improvement. We don’t talk here about the weakness you have to improve because we believe that you do it best by focusing on what is good about you. Our purpose is not problem-solving or learning to be positive in order to solve problems. It is finding and enjoying the goodness in life for its own sake each day. We teach people to live in an UpSpiral everyday; that is our aim. The world is full of therapists and counselors, problem-solvers, and healers of every kind. We are not healers, only in that healing is a by-product of the positive mind. What we need are places of positivity, where we become more positive, more optimistic and learn to view and savor life through the lens of what is good. Positive watering holes are hard to find. This is one of them.
We believe this so strongly that we claim that positivity is the core of ongoing, creative evolution. We believe that the power of positivity is enormous and largely untapped, that worlds are created by it, and that our civilization is sustained because of it. Positivity is a power waiting for you to tap by changing your focus on life. The emerging sciences are telling us, over and over, through the hard research, that this is true.
The focus is on feeling more positive emotion, finding your strengths, increasing your positive vibration, and moving into the experience of “flow.” We believe in the importance of setting goals that are malleable and finding your vision and your passion.
Our central aim is to increase your positivity, what we call your UpSpiral. The higher you go in your UpSpiral, the longer you learn to stay there, the better you will feel in every area of your life. Seeing as much of life as possible through a positive lens, in spite of the negative, is our goal. We spend way too much time, as does our culture, in looking at the negative. This is a place to engage the power of positivity. Its purpose is not to solve problems, but to see the world differently.
The truth is this. We have everything we need today and every day to be perfectly happy. When we learn to be happy and positive today, we increase the happiness that comes to us, maybe not instantaneously, but over time. As the positive reservoir builds, more and more of a satisfying life emerges. The secret is quite simply to learn to be happy and positive today, to see the best in the past, and to think about the good you want in the future rather than fear it. Today I have everything I need to be perfectly happy. The real determinant is my decision to be happy. Abraham Lincoln said it best: “A man is about as happy as he decides to be.” We are here to help you sustain that decision.
