7 Habits for Highly Effective People- Habit 1

With the new year just around the corner many people are beginning to think about New Year's Resolutions. Possibly you are one of the many out there who feel like life has been lacking something, or just feeling, like you are not in the driver's seat anymore.

Stephen Covey's book 7 Habits for Highly Effective People is amazing at giving you advice on how to take back the control. Perfect for the new year!

"Your life doesn't just "happen." Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose decisiveness. You choose ambivalence. You choose success. You choose failure. You choose courage. You choose fear. Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results."

Habit 1: Be Proactive

"Be Proactive is about taking responsibility for your life. You can't keep blaming everything on others."

"One of the most important things you choose is what you say. Your language is a good indicator of how you see yourself. A proactive person uses proactive language--I can, I will, I prefer, etc. A reactive person uses reactive language--I can't, I have to, if only. Reactive people believe they are not responsible for what they say and do--they have no choice."

"Instead of reacting to or worrying about conditions over which they have little or no control, proactive people focus their time and energy on things they can control."
