The Habit of personal responsibility.
“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” - Dr. Stephen R. Covey
The freedom to choose.
Proactive people focus their efforts on their Circle of Influence. They work on the things they can do something about: health, children, or problems at work.
Reactive people focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern--things over which they have little or no control: the national debt, terrorism, or the weather. Gaining an awareness of the areas in which we expend our energies is a giant step in becoming proactive.
"The proactive approach to a mistake is to acknowledge it instantly, correct and learn from it." - Dr. Stephen R. Covey
