The Always Positive Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit public charity founded in 2001 to change attitudes, transform lives and restore hope by inspiring people, organizations and communities to choose a positive attitude, teach the benefits of developing strong character and provide opportunities to make a positive difference in their life and the lives of others.
As promoters of the Always Positive message our mission is to unite, ignite and mobilize a worldwide positive attitude lifestyle movement through a social initiative that inspires people and organizations to Be Positive, Do Positive and Live Positive.
After 22 years playing football in the National Football League, Always Positive Ambassador John Carney has met a lot of very successful people inside the NFL and in the marketplace and the one thing they all have in common is a Positive Attitude.
In 1995, while with the San Diego Chargers, John joined Always Positive because he believed in the message. To get the word out, he began to assemble a group of professional athletes with strong moral character who embraced their responsibility as role models to promote the Always Positive message. These players self-identified with the Always Positive core values of courage, character and commitment and began to spread the message to their sphere of influence. It wasn’t long before Always Positive began popping up on national television with NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball players wearing the message.
“I believe in the power of a positive attitude and possess the courage to cause positive change. I will exhibit humility when I triumph and strong character when I fail. I will begin every day with a sense of gratitude for my gifts and the desire to use them to their fullest. I will end every day with the satisfaction that I gave it my all. When I fall short, I will respond with integrity and determination to improve. I will strive to inspire others to adopt a positive attitude as I commit my talents and influence to have a positive impact on the world I touch.”
