We’re facing a pivotal point in time, with some of the largest political, environmental, social and technological disruptions since the industrial revolution. It’s time to call on our unique strengths and contribute to the success of this change to ensure a flourishing future.
How do we do this? We Posify. We positively infuse ourselves and others with purpose. True, we made up the word, but we have not made up the science that backs its value.
Research suggests that a sense of purpose anchors individuals with a central mission that aligns them with their values. It facilitates a self-organising directedness that according to positive psychologists, Mcknight and Kashdan, “stimulates goals, manages behaviours, and provides a sense of meaning.”
Here are 8 good reasons provided by the experts as to why you should dedicate time to finding and pursuing your purpose:
- Higher life satisfaction
- Stronger social relationships
- Stronger physical health
- Increased self-esteem
- Increased positive emotions
- Increased generativity
- Decreased somatic complaints (including headaches and stomach aches)
- Reduced likelihood to develop depression
The desire to ‘posify’ makes sense to us. The benefit is hidden in the word. POS – IF – Y. Experience a POSitively enhanced life IF and when you find and follow your whY.
