A Message From The Founder
WHY POSITIVE PSYCHE?
I have successfully performed Project Management (PM) operations for over three decades. I began my PM career by managing operations of roughly 50 individuals and peaked with a team that was 15,000 strong while serving in my previous roles. In those different roles, I have been fortunate enough to work across the nation, and around the world, allowing me to experience and drive operations in diverse and unique environments, each with their own challenges and rewards.
As my career grew, so did mentoring opportunities. In the process, I realized that there are three types of people:
We all fit into this category at some point in our life and unfortunately some never exit this stage. We wish forwards for the great things and because we fail to take concrete action to accomplish our goals, Wishers end up later in life wishing backwards for the things they should have, could have done.
People who make some progress, but dabble in one field/job - and another - and another, eventually failing to realize their full potential using a focused strategy.
So who are the ones that succeed?
Water is ubiquitous but we take it for granted. It gives physical life, carries mighty ships and carves grand canyon’s out of rock. The ones who succeed are the ones who can wash away the obstacles in life.
Washers (like water) develop the fortitude, plan, and means to wash away the obstacles, giving life to their ideas and dreams!
Recognizing that the mind is the most powerful motivator (or inhibitor) for the things we accomplish in life, my book Wisher, Washer, Wishy Washy is the genesis of Positive Psyche. I want to make a difference by bringing a positive can-do mindset to the market where EVERYONE can live and work to their greatest potential. I left the safety and comfort of a Fortune 100 company, to run my own, and now our growing team of Washers stand ready to complement yours.
"If you have ever had the pleasure to meet Rick Ruiz in person you are immediately struck by the intriguing “twinkle” in his eyes — like he knows something you don’t. As it turns out he does and he shares it with us in his book, “Wisher, Washer, Wishy-Washy.” He has turned his extraordinary life lessons into an easily understood but powerful concept of introspective self evaluation and achievable action. His fictional approach to non-fictional self-help principles places you, the reader, in the story and, therefore, responsible for the ending — your success."
