Be Proactive 1

  1. 1. Habit #1Be Proactive<br />Based on the work of Stephen Covey<br />
  2. 2. What happens to a bottle of soda when you shake it up?<br />It EXPLODES!<br />
  3. 3. Journal Entry orDiscussion Starter:<br />Sometimes things go wrong, and we feel shaken up. As a result, we might EXPLODE on someone or something. This is called being REACTIVE. Has this ever happened to you? Explain what happened and why. Was this a good way to let go of all of your feelings? Why or why not?<br />
  4. 4. When you are PROACTIVE, you make a choice about how you react to the things that happen in your life. You act like a water bottle. You might get shaken up or mad, but you stay calm and don’t explode!<br />
  5. 5. Journal Entry orDiscussion Starter:<br />Is it hard to stay calm (like a water bottle) even when things don’t go your way? Why or why not?<br />What steps could you take to be more PROACTIVE and calm when things aren’t going well?<br />
  6. 6. Proactive vs. Reactive<br />When you are PROACTIVE, you make good choices about how you respond to something happening. You are always ready with a calm attitude. You do things to make sure that the right things will happen. You are prepared for anything that might happen. When things don’t go your way, you aren’t happy, BUT you stay calm.<br />When you are REACTIVE, you could explode at any minute. Things happen and they “catch you off guard”. You aren’t ready for things that might happen. You deal with things when they happen instead of being prepared.<br />
  7. 7. Where do you fall?<br />Very<br />Reactive<br />Very<br />Proactive<br />How could you be more proactive?<br />
  8. 8. How do you feel on days like this?<br />
