When a tank drives down a street things don’t happen to the tank. The tank happens to things. It rolls over cars, smashes through walls. People react to the tank. The tank does not react to the situation. It is proactive and creates the situation.
During your life you have two choices to be reactive or proactive. It doesn’t matter what happens, you get the opportunity to choose the response. It can be a response of panic or a response of decision to change the outcome. You get to decide.
So become a tank. Roll through your problems and blast them away. Be proactive.
