In the last post I targeted fear and how it can be a barrier against a person's dreams and aspirations. I also mentioned that the war we are fighting is not even about our situations but that it starts with our minds. If you think right and believe those things you think about yourself, go ahead and declare. Know your words are spirit and life. They are more effective than you may know. Once you have declared don't just wait around, go make your dream a reality. Another thing I remember from the conference is being "Proactive". I remember this because the speaker asked me if I was "Proactive" or "Reactive" and I answered, 'honestly I am a little bit of both'. She said, 'i like your honesty', and went to on to ask another person. The next person said she would say she is proactive because she is a PHD student, she needs to plan her time effectively and because of her Nigerian upbringing she has being trained to be proactive. The speaker then continued and expanded on the meaning of being proactive, what it means to be proactive and it's benefits. It was a very inspirational talk that I pondered deeply on.
Here is my take on this issue of being "proactive". Nobody is 100% "proactive". Everyone has an element of both in them, but we should be more "proactive". The speaker did mention that there are situations beyond our control that occur but we should be proactive and plan ahead of time against those situations. While I agree with that I also believe there are certain matters we can't be proactive about. There are situations (great or small) that will occur at one point in our lives and there's no amount of planning ahead that can prevent them from happening, nor fully prepare us for the after math. In situations like that we become "reactive" as a response to the happenings beyond our control. However one thing we should take from them is a lesson and with that lesson you can be proactive against them in the future.
So don't beat your self down if you aren't "there yet". Keep aspiring and keep working and you WILL get there but just don't be afraid to fail. If you fail try again and again until you get it right. Make sure your reaction produces proaction. Failure shouldn't always be seen negatively no matter how bad it may be, just make sure you learn from the situation and press forward. It can be hard and discouraging. In those times remember THINK - BELIEVE - DECLARE - ACHIEVE. If you see it as that simple, it will become that simple.
