As George Bernard Shaw said: “The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.”

Are you generally proactive or reactive? For some people, life happens to them. It’s a constant state of reactions and waiting for things to change. They may even blame others if something doesn’t work out. This is the foundation for a victim mentality. Right now, decide to act not react. Continually remind yourself that you are in control of your own mind space which is the key to life. You can decide to see obstacles or opportunities. You can decide to speak negative or positive. You have the power of choice. If you’re walking into a situation where you know your buttons will be pushed, decide ahead of time to be in control of your responses – thinking responsibly about your communication versus exploding like a nuclear reactor. If something doesn’t turn out the way you want, know that there is another way and be open to the possibilities. Decide to be a victor by tuning your mind to your highest vision and proactively taking steps to make it a reality.

Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,
