Striving To Be Proactive

For my class, Pre-AP English 10, I am reading a book called The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey, and I am really enjoying it. This book has given me a lot of great advice to help me through my teen years.

Out of all the habits that I have read so far, I really like habit one which is Be Proactive. Reading this section helped me realize how reactive I can be sometimes. My sister and I don’t fight a lot, but when we do, I can really be reactive. I make the situation worse instead of stepping back and seeing how I can be proactive.

This section, Be Proactive, has taught me to think before I say, and handle a situation in a way that will be best for others and me.
