Proactive:  Being proactive is all about taking responsibility for your life. You can’t keep blaming everything on your parents or grandparents. Proactive people recognize that they are “responseable” for their own life and actions. They don’t blame genetics, circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. They know they have to choose their own behavior to make a difference in their life.

Be Proactive
One of the traits that every successful person has is they are proactive about everything. I think that’s a really great philosophy to have. Because your  first  step  towards  being  proactive  requires  you to  adapt to the  capability  of  anticipating  problems,  opportunities  and events.  Understanding  work,  recognizing  daily  practices,  gathering  information  and  coming up  with  different  scenarios  can  always  assist  you  in  this  matter.

Power of Pause
According to Mark Twain: “The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause”

There are four tools that help a person to think before he speaks.
•    Self awareness
•    Imagination
•    Will power
•    Conscience

You either use or fail to use your four human tools every day of your life.  The more you use them, the stronger they become and the more power you have to be proactive.

Examples of Proactive Behavior
An example of being proactive in a sentence is: He took proactive steps to improve his grades by practising all the math examples the teacher gave him.

When a person is proactive, they are acting in advance of a future event. Proactive employees typically don’t need to be asked to do something, and will usually require less detailed instructions

Reactive
Thinking with emotions rather than using emotions to help them think. It is exact opposite to proactive.

Examples of Reactive Behavior
Reactive people tend to use “I can’t”, “If only”, “I have to”. These phrases are shifting the blame to outside circumstances, getting rid of responsibility. One should consciously change these to the more positive and empowering phrases like “I can”, “I will”, “I want to”. A simple change in language can make a big difference.
