REACTIVE OR PRO-ACTIVE……WAITING ON FATE…..or CREATING FATE…
I got to thinking today about REACTIVE and PRO-ACTIVE…..People that wait on life to happen for them I consider Reactive….People that get out there and make life happen for themselves I consider PRO-ACTIVE…..I think most people fit in the category of REACTIVE…..I look around and most of the time I simply find people waiting on life to HAPPEN to them rather than them out there creating their lives to happen……I see this within almost all aspects of most people’s lives…..
Most people seem to be waiting on the right relationships to come to their door step….Or better yet they wait on FATE…They wait on fate to knock at their door and bring them their dream relationships….Actually if Fate knocked on the door many people seem too lazy to get up to even answer the door to begin with….
I see so many people wish for a great relationship, career, or job…..They talk about it a lot….They dream about it a lot….They wait on it a lot more…..but nothing ever seems to happen much for these Reactive type people….The only thing they seem to do is Wait and Wait……
Whether it be relationships, careers, health, or anything else in life most people simply seem to be waiting or reactive……They are waiting for something to happen and then they figure they will react to it…..I simply do not think many people are successful with this way of life….
On the other hand there are PRO-ACTIVE PEOPLE….people who take on Life to create it the way they want it to be….They are the person that seems to welcome people with a handshake rather than wait for someone to welcome them. They are the people that have a “zillion” job applications out there for exactly the jobs they want…..They are the people you would likely see working out hard at the gym to keep their health great…..They are the people that seem to come up with great ideas and pursue them…..
Pro-active people seem to be the people that will make time for you, but you almost have to request it from them and set up a time….because they are so busy pursuing all the good things in life that they do have a schedule….A Pro-active lifestyle respects time and is very good at time management….They make time for what is important….They take time out to rest….They take time for fun…but they also know the value of pursuit of what they truly want and don’t waste time on what they don’t want….
Pro-active people rarely if ever settle for what they don’t want. They understand the value of waiting while pursuing their dreams…..They are busy people accomplishing what they want to accomplish…..You rarely hear a proactive person complain….They are too busy for complaining…Their mind is focused on CAN DO rather than Can’t do…..
Reactive people simply seem to suck the energy out of the room….All they really want to do is complain about why there are not more opportunities….while the Pro-active person is looking for the next opportunity to pursue….Reactive people tend to gossip about Pro-active people……simply because Pro-active people make Reactive people look bad….not on purpose….it is just simply the way it is…
Pro-active or Reactive….Which are you?
