Positive vision

It’s not enough to be opposed. You have to be supportive of an alternative.

It’s not enough to point out what someone is doing wrong. To improve the situation, you must be able to offer a more workable approach.

A common enemy can bring people together and compel them to action. Yet for that action to be sustained, for the group cohesion to endure, there must be a common positive vision as well.

Knowing what you don’t like can provide valuable insight. In order to move forward, though, you must identify what you desire, what direction you seek to go.

The bad things are easy to spot. Once you do that, challenge yourself to develop the good things that will be more compelling and beneficial.

Go beyond obsessing over what is wrong. Focus on a positive vision that will inspire positive action and bring positive results.

— Ralph Marston
