Ken Lindner, the founder of Positive Life Choice Psychology, explains the power of making positive and constructive choices, which lead you to fulfill your greatest potentials, in his latest book, Aspire Higher

Russ Prince: Ken, you are the Founder of Positive Life Choice Psychology and the Positive Life Choice Psychology Lifestyle. Why is this lifestyle important to you, and what inspired you to promote this way of living?
Ken Lindner: Positive Life Choice Psychology and the Positive Life Choice Psychology Lifestyle are all about making positive and constructive choices that lead you to fulfill your greatest potentials, live your very best and highest life and develop empowering feelings of high self-esteem and self-love, which will elevate your life, motivate you to elevate the lives of others and elevate our country. These positive life choices will make your world and the world around you a better place and one that you can be proud of. 

I’ve spent my adult life helping others to pursue their passions and callings and enabling them to craft the steps and strategies to enjoy hugely successful careers and fulfilling lives by equipping and empowering them to make a series of positive, highly beneficial decisions. Over the past 38 years, I’ve seen the great benefits of this Lifestyle firsthand—it really does work! I wrote Aspire Higher because I want to share my Positive Live Choice Psychology Lifestyle Steps and Principles with as many people as possible and because I want to elevate our country by elevating the lives and spirits of everyone.

Prince: In your latest book, Aspire Higher, you offer a step-by-step formula for how we can ignite positive change in our own lives so that we can in turn elevate the lives of those around us. Can you tell us about that formula and why you think there is a vital need for it?
Lindner: Of course, the title, Aspire Higher, refers to my goal of encouraging everyone to aspire to be their very best selves. The way to do this is to make choices reflecting your highest self, your highest goals and your highest values. 

In Aspire Higher, I lay out a formula that involves developing inner love and sharing it with others, raising your feelings of self-love and self-worth, and mastering your emotions so that they work for you and lead you to attain your most important goals and live your most treasured dreams. By doing this inner work, you will feel so good/great about yourself and your life that you will be organically led to help create a more positive, civil, collaborative, and respectful society. Succinctly put, when you love yourself and the track that your life is on, you’re much more likely to pay that love forward, by supporting and elevating others, which will significantly enhance and uplift our country.

I wrote Aspire Higher in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, an event that has wrought death and devastation throughout our country and the world. But even beyond the pandemic, there is so much negativity and division in the world today—witness the horrific violence, the pernicious and toxic racism, and the anger and rancor that pervade our country. Individuals are demoralized and feel emotionally and psychologically “stuck,” as they don’t see a way up or a way out of these highly troubling times. 

I really do believe there is a vital need for the clear and actionable steps that I provide in Aspire Higher to instill positivity, love, kindness, compassion,and healing in our hearts, the hearts of others and in our country!

Prince: Tell us about the concept of being a “solutionary” and how we can apply that concept to our everyday lives?
Lindner: As I discuss in Aspire Higher, for me, a solutionary means finding constructive solutions to your problems and challenges, which also benefit and elevate others. It’s a socially responsible, empathetic, and spirit-elevating way to live your life and the most highly rewarding kind of positive decision-making and problem-solving. 

Being a solutionary pays great dividends for everyone! By making positive, problem-solving choices, which benefit you AND others, everyone wins! Additionally, when you make a choice, which enhances, supports and uplifts others, your feelings of self-esteem, self-worth and self-love all elevate and lead you to make even more positive life choices for yourself because you feel that you’re worth it and you deserve good/great things in your life.

Imagine the kind of world that we would live in if everyone solved problems while taking the interests and well-being of others into account! That’s the kind of world that I want to live in, encourage, and be a major force in. So let’s all be solutionaries and enjoy highly motivating and rewarding positivity, collaboration, elevated spirits and optimism and unity in our work, in our relationships, in our neighborhoods and in our country!
