Proactive means creating or
controlling a situation rather than just responding to it after it has happened.
Whereas reactive means showing a response to a stimulus, &occurring as a result
of stress or emotional upset <reactive depression>
The purpose of selecting the topic is that most of the people can’t handle the
situation properly or they become so stress that they came in aggression or
blame all their problems to the next person. They can’t control their aggression
or they can’t control their emotions and sometimes they make a big loss. This is
true. I am not joking or telling you from the academic books. I have faced this
problem. And I also seen many people around me who become so reactive that they
make a big loss and later they realize that it was wrong.
To overcome this problem you should be proactive, should control your emotions
in front of other people, not only in front of people but also to yourself, for
yourself, for your loved ones.
Each day you and I have about 100 chances to choose whether to be reactive of
proactive. In any given day the weather is bad, you can’t find a job, your
sister steals your things, and your relationship becomes broken up. Your friends
talk behind your back or any situation. So what will be your reaction? What you
are going to do? Will you be proactive or reactive? The choice is yours!!
Reactive people make choices based on desire; they are like a can of soda. If
like shakes them up a bit, the pressure built and they suddenly burst out.
Whereas as proactive people make choices based on values. They think before they
act they can’t control every things that happen to them but they can control
what they do about it.
Ok ! Let me tell you the quote that I have read in one of my favorite book 7
HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE TEENS.
“People are just about as happy as they make up their mind to be -(ABRAHAM
LINCOLN, U.S PRESIDENT)”
If you really want your life better easier and peaceful then become proactive.
Don’t blame all problems to your parents, your friends, your girl friend or boy
friend, you teachers. Don’t be a victim. Take responsibility of your own life.
If someone yell at you, don’t yell back. Act like a human. If you think or feel
like doing something you know is wrong, don’t do it whether you do anything for
this. Be a judgmental person because this life is yours and it is given only one
