The Thrive! Philosophy (Survive and Thrive Together)

    As the underpinning for the overall Thrive! vision, mission and strategy, the “Thrive” philosophy is that “a person and a people need to survive and desire to thrive in the current world and a sustainable future world.”  It can help a person, a people and the world achieve a survivable and thriving future for all forever.   

    “Thriving” is “the lifelong (a person) and neverending (a people and the world) striving to survive and thrive in the current world and a survivable and thriving future world.”

Summary

The “Thrive” (T!®) philosophy is that “a person and a people[1] need to survive and desire to thrive in the current world and a sustainable future world.”  Its mission is “to help a person, a people and the world achieve a survivable and thriving future.”  

 

The philosophy is built on the underlying assumption that “a person needs to survive and desires to thrive.”  With that underlying assumption, the philosophy makes two more assumptions:  1) a person depends on other persons (a people) for survival and thriving, and 2) a person’s future survival and thriving depends on there being a future world.  If these assumptions are true, the philosophy argues that 1) a person and a people both need to survive and desire to thrive, 2) this need and desire applies to both the current and future world, and 3) the future world must be sustainable and sustained to fully meet the need and desire.  

 

“Thriving” for a person, a people and the world is the human endeavor and the ideal.  As the ideal, “Thriving” is “a person, a people and the world surviving and thriving together.”   

 

As the human endeavor, “Thriving” is “the lifelong (a person) and neverending (a people and the world) striving to survive and thrive in the current world and a survivable and thriving future world.”  A person and a people strive for and can achieve a high level of motivation and ability (including knowledge).[2]  That achievement is the foundation for striving for and achieving even higher levels of ability and motivation and even higher levels of survival and thriving.   

 

Ideally, the person and the rest of the world are continuously and simultaneously striving with the best combination of independence and interdependence in joint pursuit of survival and thriving.  

The “Thrive” philosophy is designed to be a defensible, understandable, usable, sustainable and valuable philosophy for a person and a people for today and the future.  It addresses key elements: 

  •  Our nature, as a person and a people, is our need to survive and desire to thrive in the current world and a sustainable future world. 

  •  Our knowledge of our selves and the world comes from a) inputs[3] resulting from striving to survive and thrive and b) the mind processing those inputs to achieve knowledge and thinking. 

  • Our actions are driven by our need to survive and desire to thrive but influenced by a) other persons and the surrounding world and b) the need and desire for a long term, sustainable future. 

  •  Our relationship with other persons and the surrounding world is driven and governed by our need to survive and desire to thrive in the current world and a sustainable future world.   

 

The “Thrive” philosophy strives to help achieve a survivable and thriving future for a person, a people and the world.  The philosophy’s ultimate aspiration and ideal is “Thriving”, the achievement of a survivable and thriving future for a person, a people and the world.  

 

Its value lies in improving life for a person, a people and/or the world.  Its greater value lies in helping a person, a people and the world survive together on a sustained basis.  Its greatest value lies in helping a person, a people and the world thrive together on a sustained basis.

 [1] A “people” is a group of persons such as a family, community, state, nation,world. 

[2] This striving and increasing ability is evident in overall human development to date.  It can be argued that a people will achieve that high level of ability over time. 

[3] “Inputs” include the “senses” (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, pain, balance, motion/acceleration, time, temperature, direction) as well information from and experiences with other persons and the surrounding world.
