Take Part, Be Proactive!

Posted by Australian College on

We are all leaders. We have the ability to demonstrate leadership wherever we are and whatever we do. It’s not just about a specific title, position or status in life - we can step up and accept responsibility. We all have a level of accountability to right the wrongs around us and provide solutions to problems and stand behind the decisions that we make. To make a lasting impact as a leader, the perfect virtue to gain is by being proactive.


A proactive person has a lot of great qualities and habits. Being proactive means you are always able to take a step back, see the bigger picture and focus on long-term goals. You’re change-oriented and invariably thrive in any given situation, continually aspire to seek opportunities and willing to undergo self-improvement even during good times.


To develop a proactive personality, you have to start with taking control of your life. List down your goals and the activities that you need to do in order to achieve them. Create a mind map or a flowchart if you have to. When you plan things, having foresight will help you become aware of potential obstacles and risks that you might face instead of just instinctively reacting to stimuli. Be ever-ready by thinking of a Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, so on and so forth. Consider visualising for alternatives. Accept that problems are part of the equation but also have a positive mindset and strong faith that there’s more than one solution to a problem.


Establish core values and standards as guidelines. Do not settle if something doesn’t feel right or you think it’s just semi-satisfying. Direct your own life instead of being pushed by external influences. A lot of things can go wrong if you let others decide for you. Control the flow, not go with the flow. Invest all your time and effort in making conscious and intelligent choices in life and do your best to follow-through because the most excellent preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.


“If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” --Jim Rohn


What’s the next step? Take part! Be available to help others. True leaders beget great leaders. The example you show to others will inspire them to do the same and this positive flow of energy will also give you the motivation to do better than you do now.
