P . O . S . E .

Positive . Optimist . Service . Excellence

P: Positive

Positive value is a mindset. 

We have to train our mind to see the good in every situation. Even though we cannot control and stop the wave, but we can how to surf.

As Mahatma Gandhi once said:

“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.

Keep your words positive, because your words become your behavior.

Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior become your habits.

Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.

Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.”

O: Optimist

Optimism is a mentality.

Being optimistic does not necessarily mean being happy all the time.

It is about overcoming what the world throws at you and being able to say "I am still standing despite what was thrown at me."

Do not let circumstances defeat you. You can, if you think you can.

Optimism is the tool to bring you up after you fell and to keep you going towards the life that you really want.

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence"  Hellen Keller

S: Service

Service is talks about having a sincere heart and integrity in action. In short, you are what you do.

"To give real service you must add something which can not be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity" Douglas Adams

"A sincere soul is not trying to make show, his enthusiasm is an act of service"  Radhanath Swami

"Everyone has the power for greatness, not for fame but greatness, because greatness is determined by service" Martin Luther King Jr

E: Excellence

"Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude"  Ralph Marston

"Excellence is gradual result of always striving to do better."  Pat Riley

Excellence talks about a result that comes from a long process of action and attitude. We can consider someone as excellent when he/she strives a goal with a positive action and attitude.

These values do not necessarily mean that we have a lot of p.o.s.e., but we would like to make it as our lifestyle.
