Be Proactive

Posted: 01/28/2010 in Uncategorized

The term proactive was coined by Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist Victor Frankl. In 1942  he and his family were sent to the Nazi concentration camps. There his wife and parents died. On April 27, 1945, he was liberated from Dachau by U.S. Troops . Frankl’s life of research and service is a testament to his idea of being proactive, even in the worst of conditions. What about you? You can either be proactive or reactive.  The challenges of life will come; your response is your own choice. When you are reactive, you blame other people and circumstances for obstacles or problems. When you are proactive you take  responsibility for every aspect of your life. How about you?  Are you taking the initiative or just pointing fingers. Are you working on you relationships, your health, your wealth, your service or will you be a victim everything the has happened to you? Victor Frankl could not choose whether to be prisoner of the Holocaust or not, but he did choose to be a survivor and an overcomer, not a victim. What about your?  What is your choice today? Take the initiative.  

Be proactive.
