Some Habits Are Good
*Be Proactive*

Have you read Stephen Covey's book, 7 habits of successful people. He descibes there are two types of people - Proactive and reactive
Proactive people focus their efforts on their Circle of Influence. They work on the things they can do something about: health, children, or problems at work.
 Reactive people focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern–things over which they have little or no control: the national debt, terrorism, or the weather.

Here is the list of the most important skills you need to acquire to be proactive:
✅Be aware of the words you use, your every word is taking shape towards reality ...
✅Plan ahead, plan for future, don't obsess for the outcomes, and also don't miss the present moment. ...
✅Set goals, set goals of short term and long term, keep check on them, do necessary changes if needed. ...
✅Prioritize, focus on big goals, strategise well ...
✅Learn to problem-solve, take problems as challenges, solve them without much fearing on it...
✅Take action, take right actions at right time, mostly the results are 20 percent seen out of your 80 percent of  your effort...
✅Learn to take responsibility for your actions, personal success, happiness.
✅Don't dwell on the mistakes from the past, but learn from them.
✅Think how your decisions would make you after a year, after three years... Focus on the future with more clarity of where it is going to lead you
✅Think big picture, sometimes the challenges make you think in small way..but what if you see from distance, think about the big picture of rewards it is paying you 
✅Focus on what you can control, don't dwell on the past, it is already past
✅Think through the scenarios, plan it well, prepare it well, take actions well
✅Make things happen...don't wait for it to happen
