“Get Off My Bus” Tip #22

Filed under: Making Decisions,Take Control — Robin Sacks...Confidence Coach, Motivational Speaker, Author @ 7:50 am


Choose to be proactive instead of reactive.

When you let things happen, you simply REACT to everything that happens. When you make things happen, you do something BEFORE you know you will need to do something. Let’s recap rule #1…if you are constantly reacting to things, how much control do you have? If you said “zero” you would be correct! However, if you became proactive about some of those things, would you have more control over them? AHA! Yes…of course, you would. So…who is creating a lack of control? Again, you are. The really, really cool thing about that??? YOU have total control over doing something about it. As a matter of fact…it is the ONLY thing over which you have total control! You can play the game of life in one of two ways. You can play “to win” or you can play “not to lose.” If you choose to play “not to lose,” do not expect to win very often.

Until tomorrow…
