Yes, that Bruce Lee.
Here's one of my favourites:
http://www.positivityblog.com/index....life-in-shape/6. Be proactive.
ďTo hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.Ē
Itís easy to get locked into a reactive mindset. You just follow along with whatever is happening. You do what the people around you do. You react to whatever is going on.
And so you get lost in your circumstances. This way of thinking doesnít feel too good. You tend to feel powerless and like you are just drifting along.
A more useful and pleasurable way of living is to be proactive. As Bruce says: to create opportunities despite the circumstances around you. This feels better and provides better results. But on the other hand itís also more difficult. Itís easier to just drift along in the reactive stream of life. And if you want to be proactive then you may have to take the lead quite often. And that can be scary.
Still, living proactively is so much more rewarding and exciting.
