Most people go about their lives being reactive. These people get fired from a job, so they look for a different job. They get sick, so they take medicine.

Highly effective people tend to be proactive. They decide to find a better job or to have better health, rather than of responding to whatever curves life throws at them.

It's essential to first take responsibility for your life and your situation.

Change starts from inside.



The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person.

Without involvement, there is no commitment. Mark it down, asterisk it, circle it, underline it. No involvement, no commitment.

Begin with the end in mind.

We are free to choose our actions, . . . but we are not free to choose the consequences of these actions.




Stephen Covey Quotes

Live out of your imagination, not your history.

Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.




Stephen R. Covey advice

We are not human beings on a spiritual journey.

We are spiritual beings on a human journey.

Stephen R. Covey

Vadim Kotelnikov quotes
