Circle Of Influence/Concern

Proactive people focus their efforts in the Circle of Influence, divorce on the things which can't do something about. The circle attracts the aura of discipline and inertness wherever you move.

Reactive people on the other hand focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern the focus on the weakness of other people the problems in environment and the circumstances over which they have no control.

"Habit is like a cable, we daily entangle it like a thick ring and it cannot be broken until and unless we ourselves thinner the ring by breaking the habit."


No!! Control Problem

No control problems involves for accepting the problems peacefully and learning to live with them happily. Life just testifies your patience and stability for the wrath which you face.

Just remember :Proactive people aren't pushy. They are smart, they are value-driven, they read reality and they know what's needed.


"If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail


Direct Control Problem

Direct control problems are solved by working on our habits they are obviously within our Circle of nfluence. They come under the habits of 1, 2 & 3.

Indirect Control Problem

Indirect control problems are solved by changing of our methods of influence They are public victories of habit 4, 5, 6.

We can learn new methods of human influence instead of constantly trying to use old ineffective matters to shape up someone else!
