Proactive living is 'life on purpose'. This differs from reactive living, which is 'life in response to others'. A part of every day must be reserved for doing purposeful things. Build your own unique life story.
Here's what the movies have to say about proactive living.
"The only person’s behavior we can control is our own."
"She's young. She should change the world any chance she gets."
"If you live an ordinary life, all you'll have are ordinary stories."

"Aggression, correctly channeled, overcomes a lot of flaws."
"Please rise above yourself."
"Live boldly. Push yourself. Don't settle."
"The key to this whole deal is to keep moving."
"Ma and I have decided that, because we don't know what we like, we get to try everything."
"You never know. You hope for the best and then make do with what you get."
