There are two types of people in this world: reactive and proactive people. Reactive people act like victims. They respond to events and changes in a way that removes all power from them. Proactive people are the opposite of reactive people. They take charge of their lives and they do what they can in a given situation. Out of these two, I’d say that I would definitely aspire to be a take-charge, proactive woman. Being proactive is not easy but it is something you can learn. A great way to start being proactive is by not letting certain things to ruin your day. You just have to take control and make the best of a situation. Here are some things that shouldn’t ruin your day.
1. Bad hair
For us girls, our hair can sometimes help boost our self-confidence. If we have great hair, we feel like we can take on anything. But if we have a bad hair day, we feel vulnerable and less confident. But honestly, having bad hair shouldn’t bring you down. Instead of focusing on the bad, you should focus on what works. Wear your favorite outfit or do something that makes you happy. Remember that your hair is a small part of you. You are as beautiful and confident as you allow yourself to feel.
2. An annoying co-worker
Negative people are all around us. Even if they make you feel like you are the cause of their problems, don’t believe it for one second. Their negativity comes from inside them and has nothing to do with you. So don’t let their negativity ruin your day. Counter their negativity with smiles, encouragement, and as much positivity as you can muster. If nothing else works, ignore them and get on with your day.
3. Running late
I know, I know…. Running late can really ruin your schedule and your whole day. However, there is no use getting worked up about it. Time is moving forward and all you can do is move along with it. Accept that you are running late and just do the next thing on your to-do list. If you can, find a way to make up for lost time but don’t let being late ruin the rest of the day.
