Driving the World to Holistic Positivity!

Positive Imperative Mission Statement

The Positive Imperative is a collaborative collective, creating a legacy by educating people around the world about Holistic Positivity and the distinctions of Positives, Negatives and especially the Neutrals and challenge people to take on the responsibility to “BE THE positive CHANGE” at all levels and with all things.  We do so by our programs like PosiWords and through the promotion of Positive Music with the Positive Music Imperative.

Positive Imperative Vision

To create a Legacy starting from the PI movement throughout the world that helps to shift the social consciousness of the people from the Neutral to the Positive in both thoughts and actions.

The first Partner of PI is the Positive Music Imperative, Motivational Value based music. (Click link here for more info –>About PMI).

The Three Tenets of the Positive Imperative

1. The PosNegNeut Dynamic

All approaches to life are either Positive (Constructive), Negative Destructive or Neutral, which is also Negative. The vast amount of responses to life are Neutral, and the vast quantity of Neutral approaches including apathy, indifference, a lack of interest, and laziness, which manifest in issues such as not voting, not being a part of the community, and not responding Positively to the environment are systemically the vast quantity of response by the masses, and therefor the biggest sustainable threat to a safe and prosperous world.


2. PosiRatio

The nature of Positives, Neutrals and Negatives are not deeply understood by society. Significant Positive creations, like raising a responsible human take ten times the effort and energy to create.   A Neutral one (not participating in a positive way to raise your kids) are actually a Negative and do  between three and five times the damage thus also causing  a ripple effect. Negatives however take ten times less effort and energy to achieve but do ten times the damage and thus create a  huge Negative ripple effect, and often actually 10 time more.  

 For a simple illustration of the PosiRatio and the Negative 10 factor see our post on Interdependence.  

3. Universal Ownership of Responsibility;  The Concentration of Responsibility ultimately lies with the individual!

To fully comprehend the first two tenets and their profound significance in how they affect either the creation of a more Positive world or a world filled with negativity and destruction means that we all have one of two choices.To be Positively congruent and to respond with a declaration to commit to creating a more Positive life and world. Option two is to either participate in the Negative destruction either voluntarily or by virtue of the impact of our Neutral participation and resulting Negative repercussions. Once this ultimate question of approach to life is fully understood, we can no longer plead ignorance, and unconscious abdication of our responsibility is no longer possible. We are then faced with the ultimate response which is to commit to the Positive, as a part of our inherent responsibility to life and humanity. The opposite is called the Diffusion of Responsibility which is when we abdicate our personal control in favor of somebody, or someone else to take the responsibility.   Personally this takes place when people walk over a fallen person on a busy street (the bystander effect, – click here to see an example that will for ever more change your thinking), and globally it’s when the world stand by and points a finger at who will stop the next Rwanda.  This is the Neutral which can be the biggest peril of any society.  Ultimately how we respond will dictate if we are either a part of the solution or a part of the problem. No other congruent approach to life exists.

Do all the good you can

By all the means you can

In all the ways you can

In all the places you can

To all the people you can

As long as you ever can.

~ John Wesley

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.

The Positive Imperative is a concept that has evolved from a number of thoughts and ideas. The terminology or label has been created by myself (Victor Sinclair) with the intention to present some familiar concepts in a unique fashion; to give people a new understanding of Positives/Neutrals/Negatives and the vision of educating and spreading the concepts throughout the world. The concept for the forthcoming book and to promote the idea really came from the desire…

To establish an effective way to facilitate positive change in the world with an approach people can use day to day as well as on larger and more important issues in their lives, their community and the world that will make a major positive impact. The desire is to focus on outcomes without getting mired in subjective issues.

To introduce a different paradigm to evaluate ideas and in particular actions and reactions.

To introduce a vehicle that will both educate and grow the critical mass on the concept and to stimulate positive actions and projects.

What is a Positive Neutral and Negative

POSITIVE is simply defined as constructive and healthy for the community and environment.

NEUTRAL is really just sitting on the fence and not participating in a positive contribution to the many facets of life; the environment, voting, peace, safety in the community, parenting and even simple things like driving your car, defined as inert, a state of disconection, apathy, or disengagement. It also contributes to life energy and outcomes in the realm of negative. More on the Neutral see, is your life in Neutral.

NEGATIVE is defined as destructive and unhealthy for the community and environment. We try and avoid subjective terms like good, bad, right, wrong…. and leave that for others to discuss. Neither do we focus on the negative or a neutral as an end unto itself as this too can be subjective. Rather we focus on Positivity.

Here is more on the Positive Imperative with founder Victor Sinclair, interviewed by Michael H. Ballard.

Clocks ~ Coldplay

Lights go out and I can’t be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh, I beg, I’m begging please
Singing: Come out, all things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head
And a trouble that can’t be named
The tiger’s waiting to be tamed

You are
You are

Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop what you now know
Singing: Come out upon my seas
Curse missed opportunities
Am I a part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease?

You are
You are
You are
You are

And nothing else compares
Oh, nothing else compares
And nothing else compares

You are
You are

Where I wanted to go

Hey All!

I think this is a great new website for positive music around the world!

I love what Mr. Sinclair has set out to do…..

I know in my life positive music has helped me a lot. In some of the hardest times I had growing up, these songs helped me feel connected and motivated to keep going on, and that I wasn’t alone.

I have to start of with the great songs of the Motown era. Starting with the first song to identify father absent homes like “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” ~ Temptations a great friendship song like “I’ll be there” ~ Jackson 5 ~ two fantastic inspiring songs: “Ant No Mountain High Enough” and “Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand” ~ Diana Ross & The Supremes, and of course that social protest song, “What’s Going On” ~ by the incredible late great Marvin Gay! Other songs that I loved included, “Under Pressure” ~ Queen, “Friends” ~ Elton John, and “What The World Need Now” ~ Jackie De Shannon. I agree with Victor for his choice of the number one positive song on his list, by John Lennon ~ “Imagine”. These are just some of the songs that have impacted me the most!

Bless you all with peace, joy, health, love and prosperity!

This is such a simple but profound concept. I mean really, how do you argue with such common sense. Either you’re going this way to positivity or that way to negativity or you are in the abyss of life and living in the neutral in which case it’s a no brainer that you’re going no where in life at all!

Put me down as a huge fan of this concept…… I hope the world catches on because there are so many places it can be applied…. politics, the environment, raising your kids, in fact just about everything you do falls into those three categories and I for one have had a long time peeve about people who complain, complain complain and then don’t do a thing to make anything better. Stop complaining and “DO” something about it.

PI and PMI are such beautiful legacies and it is my hope that they will perpetuate into the future. A brilliant message of light and hope for present and future generations to come.

In my mid 20’s i turned over any musical talent i had to writing songs that expressed my passion for issues that concerned me, and more lately to encourage self growth and belief, and that you and i today, are the change that is needed to bring more joy into this world.
The power of music to effect both emotions and physical states cannot be denied, so lets use this powerful tool for the good!

I love everything about your movement. One thing though…on the youtube clip “You’re Out There”, they have used YOUR instead of YOU’RE. Perhaps this can be corrected?
