This challenge is designed to help you build the vital habit of controlling your day rather than letting the day control you.
We’ve all caught ourselves in the position of automatically reacting to what life throws at us. When we decide to merely fall in the habit of reacting to stimuli, we lose the ability to have agency over how our day will look. When we’re reactive, we become a product of what happens that day. If positive things happened to you, the sun is shining and there was no one in line at starbucks, you’ll have had a good day. However if negative things happen to you, you receive an insult or feel like you’ve been treated with disrespect from a co worker, you will have a bad day.
The absolutely vital Habit of being Proactive is what gives us the ability to smile when it’s raining on our commute to work. For us to create our day and choose how it will play out on our terms, not based on what might happen that’s outside of our control. A Proactive mentality is the cornerstone for strength and success.
Perform a conscious action in your environment or catch yourself being consciously mindful as you react to a stimulus that happens throughout your day.
Examples: Choosing to take 5 minutes to read a few pages from a book, fixing your posture while deep in work, not getting emotional when someone cuts you off in traffic.
