THE POSITIVE PLEDGE

All the words in The Positive Dictionary are classified into fifteen categories of life in the Index in the back of the book.

These categories are the following:

Basic values, Spiritual values, Relationships, Goodness, Thinking, Enjoyment, Work, Effectiveness, Goals, Learning, Motivation, Health and Wellness, Community Service and a positive outlook on life.

This is very helpful in finding the right word or words for a specific situation when inspiration from The Positive Dictionary is needed.

Phil also felt that users of the book should have a commitment to practice the principles laid out in the book in order to become more positive in life. He then developed The Positive Pledge with which the user commits himself / herself to a positive approach to all fifteen categories of life, as laid out in the Index.

The Positive Pledge reads as follows:

THE POSITIVE PLEDGE

I hereby pledge that I will:

* abide by the good values I have accepted;

* foster my spiritual life;

* be positive as a way of life;

* foster goodness;

* be pure and rational in my thinking;

* enjoy the many good things in life;

* care for my health and wellness;

* be courageous;

* be compassionate in my relationships;

* work diligently to get the best possible results;

* be effective in whatever I do;

* work to attain the goals I have set;

* continue to learn;

* and serve my community.

"Be positive in life and life will treat you positively."
