Being Proactive about Habit 1 – Be Proactive

There are a lot of aspects to Habit 1, Be Proactive.  The most important aspect to me is that “if there is a will, there is a way;” whatever I need to improve about myself, I can with discipline and humbleness.

Constant self-improvement has been vital for me to be successful in my business and personal life.  I had to improve on a lot of things.  Many of them were quite hard.

Initially, my biggest obstacle was my speech.  I had a speech issue as a child and went to speech therapy until I was about thirteen years old.  When I quit, the doctor was concerned that by quitting it would jeopardize my ability to get a job which required speaking.

If I let myself believe that limit on myself, I would have been too afraid to go for my business dreams.  My mentality was that no one can put limits on me, but me.  I was dedicated to improving my speech and building my confidence in conversing with people.

Everyone has things to improve about ourselves.  Proactive mentality and action will do it.
