7 Powerful Lessons From“The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People

Habit 1: Be Proactive 

Proactivity refers to simply taking responsibility for your life.

When we respond to things reactively, we tend to think we are not responsible for what happens to us.

✅Focus your time on what you can control, and overall feel better about a situation.

Beginning with the end in mind requires you to use a little imagination. Look into the future at what you want to do in life.

👉Then, use that vision to plan what you’ll do today to help you get there.

✅Putting first things first means organizing and executing around your most important priorities. 

It is living and being driven by the principles you value most, not by the agendas and forces surrounding you.

This habit looks at putting your attention less on competition and more on collaboration

👉In the long run, if it isn’t a win for both of us, we both lose. That’s why win-win is the only real alternative in interdependent realities.

When we communicate, most times we listen with the intent to reply, not to understand. 

✅When you change this way of thinking, you may realize your entire response changes.

When people experience synergy, they are taking the time to truly accept the other person’s differences.

You’re experiencing synergy, if you:

- Have a change of heart

- Feel new energy and excitement

- Feel that the relationship has transformed

👉Sharpening the saw is what keeps the rest of the six habits together. 

When our body and mind are empowered, we have no limits.
