Our perception of the world is completely different and much of it depends on how we look at things around us. Some of us tire before we make a step while others fight with a hope of a better tomorrow.
How do you perceive the person you look at every morning in the mirror? What burns your heart you want to leap and grasp it so tight?
Are you afraid of change and you'd rather the status quo remained unaltered? In other words are you proactive or are you reactive?
So, what's the symbolic value of the: Proactivity and reactivity?
This is what differentiates a people's growth. You are either: Proactive or Reactive.
A proactive person, is one who bears a mindset of 'What can I do to change the situation?'
Proactive individuals are highly positive people. People who would not join the bandwagon. But would recede in the darkest of their corners to plot a winning strategy.
It's not easy to remain Level-headed especially when almost all you try to put your hands on flops! But I've come to learn the road to success is marred with constant failures with no give ups.
It's not a one-time kind of a situation. You fall, rise and fall again. And you decide if you want to remain on the ground or rise and dust yourself off with a renewed commitment.
Some will say it's easier said than done. But I will say, it all depends with your attitude! Attitude is the big brother! Your attitude will either bang the door right before your eyes, or open even the hardest of doors!
Even the toughest and most focused individuals tire, they also reach the brink and feel like throwing in the towel, but a proactive individual, will bounce bank with a renewed spring! Because they know, nothing comes easy! Absolutely NOTHING!
With a mentality of; 'no one will do it for me if I don't',
'the mess is mine to wipe,'
'this is part of life',
'it's what makes life spicy',etcetera.
A proactive individual, will not blame anyone for their failure(s). But will look at every obstacle as a challenge or as a possibility of a better thing behind the sadness.(or so, they said, everything has a reason for its existence).
2)A reactive individual
It is dangerous to possess a reactive personality! This is a personality that have loads of blames. You blame everyone and everything for your stagnation, failures and you feel like everyone owes you!
This character carries with it loads of negative and dark energy! This is where you throw your hands and go like;
"If it were not for so and so, I would be far,"
"The world is a cruel place and I can't stomach this anymore,"
" Nothing good ever happens to me however much I try,"
And so many more! It's easier to let negativity thrive,(when tendered)by just a grain of our thought. Good news is, you can condition your mind! Condition it to what you want it to believe!
Personality development is a great measure in a person's growth. But a tricky one to establish. Focus on things that build you. Friends that bring the best out of you. Things that make you feel special and worth. Do not focus on negativity, do not harbour grudge against an individual or a people. Walk away from things that diminish you.
Your circle of friends will either better you, or destroy you. Choose wisely and do it better! And learn to be appreciative as you appreciate.
Focus on building your brand, an aura of positivity cannot be backlashed. Shine on and shine out.
