REACTIVE PEOPLE EMPOWER THE NEGATIVE CIRCUMSTANCES IN THEIR WORLD TO CONTROL THEM
“Response-ability” goes further than that – we are responsible for exercising the choice, for being proactive.
People who abdicate this choice, who let their physical surroundings, the opinions of others, their current circumstances control their responses are living in re-active mode.
To break out of this vicious circle, you need to subordinate your impulse to respond instinctively. You need to examine your values, what you consider to be important, before choosing your response.
BEING PROACTIVE IS NOT BEING IN DENIAL
Being proactive should not be confused with the kind of positive thinking where you tell yourself that everything is ok even when you are about to go broke or your spouse is about to leave you. Being proactive is not the same as being pushy and obnoxious.
It is just that when you are proactive, you are not controlled by your circumstances, you are free to choose how you react. You can choose to go with the flow and let circumstances control your response if you judge that to be the best thing to do, you can choose to stand up and make a difference, you can choose to look for a win-win result…
MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION TODAY

Do find There’s someone who always makes you angry, you can’t resist eating that enticing little snack, you feel overwhelmed by your finances?

… And make that choice!!! Start living a proactive life today!!!
