Be Proactive can be defined as “Taking control and making things happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen.”
KCP’s example of Be Proactive is “Instead of reacting to or worrying about conditions over which we have little or no control, we focus our time and energy on things we can control.”
Proactive people focus their efforts on their Circle of Influence. They work on the things they can do something about: helping customers, being healthy, saving for the future, planning for children’s education, and solving problems at work. Reactive people focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern - things over which they have little or no control: other people’s moods, how others drive on the road, worrying about the national debt, terrorism and the weather.
Being proactive is the first step to being independent and interdependent. Without being proactive you can’t take the next steps of beginning with the end in mind, prioritizing, strategizing for win/win, understanding others before you are understood by others, and synergizing with others. As you are self-aware of the fact that your life doesn't just "happen,” you will start to make conscientious choices. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose joy. You choose sadness. You choose compassion. You choose violence. You choose integrity. You choose untrustworthiness.
While I was searching cyber community for being proactive I found a great one that I like to share with you. It is a community built by Stephen Covey. https://www.stephencovey.com/community/
