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.
"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."
"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."
"When you become proactive, your problems become subtractive."
"I thought, how many new lives can we have? Then I thought, as many as we like."
"Stop talking about yesterday's fight. Think about today's."
