Proactive vs. Reactive: 5 Success Principles To Get The Most Out of Life

Proactive vs. Reactive: 5 Success Principles To Get The Most Out of Life

You either live a proactive life (where you decided what you want out of it), or reactive (where you react to the world around you).

Unhappy people live reactively. They believe their life happens to them and they have no power to change that.

Successful entrepreneurs are highly proactive.

They create the world they want to live in.

Part of this success comes down to daily practices, life beliefs and taking action.

That’s why I want to share with you 5 “Success Principles” that I use to get the most out of life on a daily basis.

Things I do to be PROACTIVE in life.

Over the past few years I’ve felt absolutely blessed with some of the achievements I’ve accomplished:

  • Raised over $3M in funding.
  • Founded and exited the last 3 companies I’ve started.
  • Found the love of my life and had 2 amazing boys.
  • Got to spend time with Richard Branson, and even had Mark Cuban invest in my last company.
  • Invited to speak at multiple business schools, including Berkeley and Stanford.

Exclusive Bonus: Download a list of my Top 5 productivity hacks (for free!). These are the top “hacks” that help me focus on family AND business.

If you know my personal story…

… growing up in a super challenging environment, having gone to jail twice before the age of 17, you might understand why I feel totally lucky to have had any success whatsoever.

I still have to pinch myself to remind myself I’m not dreaming.

I only list these as proof that they’re all a bi-product of “habits” I’ve adopted throughout my life.

They aren’t because I was born with any advantages (if anything it was the opposite), or I was super smart (I hardly graduated high-school and never went to university).

And that’s what I’m sharing in this weeks video:

Here’s what I do to get the most out of life and business…

  1. Keeping Momentum
  2. Habits, To Avoid The Ups & Downs
  3. Simple, To Go Deep
  4. Strategy, (So You Can Say No)
  5. Enjoy The Journey

Over the years this list has changed and morphed, but these are the big things that guide my life today.

What are you top 5? What do you do everyday to create the world around you? What are you doing to be proactive?
