What is Positive Identity?
The Positive Identity is a philosophy based on the idea that if we see the best in who we are and in who others are, we’ll exponentially improve ourselves, others and the world around us.
The creation of The Positive Identity is a response to the collapse of the current racial and political climate of the United States. The US, once a country that seemed to have moved on from the dividing factors of race and identity has found itself more than ever being torn apart by those very factors. The thinkers of our time have offered no new solutions for the worsening social climate, and in fact, you could argue that their ideas have made things worse.
It’s time for a new movement and a new approach. Not decided by the powers that be, but by the people.
That is The Positive Identity.
The Positive Identity looks to reject the mistrust, division, and alienation that people feel and instead, it looks to celebrate who you are, who others are and how we’re working together to improve the world. The foundation of this system of thinking comes from one age-old philosophy.
"Love your neighbor as yourself.”
How can you love others if you don’t know how to love yourself. Whether you’re Black or White, you must love your Blackness or love your Whiteness. You must love your Hispanicness and Asianness. You must celebrate the members of your community who have made significant accomplishments in the world, seek to emulate them, celebrate the achievements of other communities and help them succeed even further.
So let’s talk about the benefits. Individually, by loving who you are, you will be healthier, live longer, be happier, more assertive, confident, and ultimately more successful. That's a fact. And watching media the demonizes your identity and doesn’t celebrate it psychologically damages you. You must reject that. You need to relentlessly train yourself to love the way you were born and continually love the positive things the members of your community have done and seek to emulate them. Also, from “The Secret” to “The Power of Positive Thinking,” it's also a fact that positive thinking and visualization makes you more successful. Just by being on this website, you’re already becoming more successful. (Seriously!). Loving who you are and celebrating who you are will make you succeed in life far more than you usually would.
Secondly, by highlighting the positive things people of your identity group have done, it helps to give you confidence in your success, teach you what “success” is and help you understand how to succeed. Different identity groups in America and the world have different experiences and advice for one group of people make not be as useful as advice for other groups. Also defining what success is not something that is universally agreed. Some people think success is getting wealthy and famous; others believe that they should have a family, others think it’s activism and so forth. We primarily feel success is being a moral person. But we seek to highlight all the different ways people are fortunate among various communities.
Thirdly, by seeing the best of others, you will have a far healthier outlook on life, and it will cause you to be healthier, less stressed, more assertive, and so forth. Instead of repulsing yourself from people, you’ll find yourself drawn to them. Having a positive self-image and a positive image of others will make you more driven, smarter, and eclectic in what you want to accomplish.
Fourthly, and most importantly, let’s go back to our motto. “Love your neighbor as yourself.” That positive self-image and positive image of others will give you far more incentive to support and aid all people. And knowing that they see the best of you will cause them to have far more incentive to help you. And this will create a feedback loop, where your helping of others will cause them to help you and thus radically improve you both.
We all agree to the shared values of Democracy, Human Rights, Global Charity, Scientific Progress, Cultural Greatness and so forth. So let's celebrate how we’re succeeding in these values and how others are succeeding! And then, let’s take action on those feelings. By seeing the best in ourselves and others, we open the door to radical and exponential self-achievement, community achievement and united global progress.
Right now in the world, it seems like things are getting worse. But I argue that we don’t have to let the world define who we are. We still have the power to define the world.
Let’s celebrate the positive things the Asian Community, Black Community, Hispanic Community, White Community and all other communities have done to create a better world. And let's take action.

Many people feel powerless with the way things are going, down on themselves and down on each other. We want to change that. We want to send you things that make you feel better about yourself, others and most importantly, give you direction to actualize those feelings. And we want you to let the world know that you're not against anyone because of who they are, but you're with them. Everyone. If people know that you are on their side and that you feel empowered through the knowledge and confidence TPI brings, then we've succeeded. And then help others achieve as well. You should you see the greatness in yourself, and you should also see the greatness in what you can do for the world. Follow us on social media so you can spread the word about building a better self and a better world.
