Habit 1: Be Proactive is all about taking contorl of your life. Dr. Stephen R. Covey reveals the reactive mentality that is so pervasive in the world today. He shows how every day we hear language that tries to excuse us from taking responsibility for our own chioces. "That's just the way I am." "He makes me so mad." "I have to _____." "I can't." "They won't allow that."
In this in-depth exploration of Habit 1 you will hear Dr. Covey teach how to change the reactive "Mental Map" that seeks to blame circumstances or others into a positive, proactive mentality.
"Anytime we thinkt he problem is 'out there,' that thought is the problem. We empower what's out there to control us. ...The proactive approach is to change from the inside-out: to be different, and by being different, to effect positive chagne in what's out there."
This is not pop psychology or simply a trendy catch phrase. Rather Dr. Covey helps the listener examine the character attributes that lead to behaviors. By living with honesty, integrity, kindness, and other time-tested principles, listeners find the real keys to changing unwanted behaviors.
