    Act or be acted upon. It's your responsibility to act in any given situation. If you wait to be acted upon, you will be acted upon. Growth and opportunity consequences attend either road.

    As a teacher, as well as a parent, I have found that the key to the ninety-nine is the one—particularly the one that is testing the patience and the good humor of the many. It is the love and the discipline of the one student, the one child, that communicates love for the others. It’s how you treat the one that reveals how you regard the ninety-nine, because everyone is ultimately a one.

    For the major part I like to nod. What I miss here is a very important aspect. every human being is born with a unique set of characteristics and soft skills, who will develop until one becomes, in average, twenty-seven to thirty. A lot is depending on background in upbringing, education, parents, nanny, school, education and so on. However, the initial set of characters and soft skills never shall change. One easily can develop contradictory habit where, and here it is, a personality will experience inner problems, reflecting to the outside world.

    If one is to achieve the highest possible, in reach and range of own unique personality, one is to very early establish insight in these and develop these further from early days on. Here are the bases of many problematic human behavior and even often avoidable. Love to reed this buzz. Thank you :O)

    Wonderful buzz @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL. I am a simple gal. I find pleasure in seeing others smile and/or laugh. If I were to talk to my younger self I might say, "Don't worry about what lies ahead, stay focused on the moment." I think it's also great when we come to the realization that real friends have no conditions and likewise, we don't have conditions for others as well. I can say this now and if I make it to the grand age of 95, I will say it again, "My children are my greatest allies and I'm thankful I was able to stay at home with them for a good period of time. I'm thankful that they love and accept me as I am, flaws and all. I'd also remind my younger self that a career never defines who we are, what defines us is how we treat others." I think I feel pretty good about all of this now. I just need to learn to go out and play in the rain once in a while, like we did when we were kids. Can you imagine seeing adults sitting in puddles and puddle jumping lol?

    When properly understood, synergy is the highest activity in all life—the true test and manifestation of all of the other habits put together.

    Until a person can say deeply and honestly, “I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,” that person cannot say, “I choose otherwise.”

    Shared from the Living the 7 Habits app:

    There is intrinsic security that comes from service, from helping other people in a meaningful way. One important source is your work, when you see yourself in a contributive and creative mode, really making a difference. Another source is anonymous service—no one knows it and no one necessarily ever will. And that’s not the concern; the concern is blessing the lives of other people. Influence, not recognition becomes the motive.

    Whether you are the president of a company or the janitor, the moment you step from independence into interdependence in any capacity, you step into a leadership role. You are in a position of influencing other people. And the habit of effective interpersonal leadership is Think Win/Win.

    The person who is truly effective has the humility and reverence to recognize his own perceptual limitations and to appreciate the minds of other human beings. That person values the differences because those differences add to his knowledge, to his understanding of reality. When we’re left to our own experiences, we constantly suffer from a shortage of data.

    Listen to your language. Your language is a very real indicator of the degree to which you see yourself as a proactive person. That is, it's better to say “I choose” rather than “I can't,” or “I control my own feelings” rather than “They make me so mad.”

    If you really seek to understand, without hypocrisy and without guile, there will be times when you will be literally stunned with the pure knowledge and understanding that will flow to you from another human being. It isn’t even always necessary to talk in order to empathize. In fact, sometimes words may just get in your way.

    How have you stretched your mind, lately?

    Influence others by example. Your example flows naturally out of your character, the kind of person you truly are. Your character is constantly radiating and communicating. From it, others come to instinctively trust or distrust you and your actions.

    We see the world, not as it is, but as we are—or, as we are conditioned to see it. When we open our mouths to describe what we see, we in effect describe ourselves, our perceptions, our paradigms. When other people disagree with us, we immediately think something is wrong with them.

    This is not my own. It comes from Stephen R. Covey and the 7 Habits book.

    Although, I believe it is also known as "Psychological projection".

    Develop a personal mission statement. Write down your philosophy of life, focusing on what you want to be (character) and do (contributions and achievements), and on the values or principles upon which being and doing are based.

    "Writing is another powerful way to sharpen the mental saw. Keeping a journal of thoughts, experiences, insights, and learnings promotes mental clarity, exactness, and context. Writing good letters—communicating on the deeper level of thoughts, feelings, and ideas rather than on the shallow, superficial level of events—also affects our ability to think clearly, to reason accurately, and to be understood effectively."

    Focus on your Circle of Influence. Proactive people focus their efforts in their Circle of Influence. They work on the things they can do something about.

    Habit 3: Put First Things First:
    Build personal relationships. By focusing on relationships and results rather than time and methods, you can become a listener, a trainer, and a consultant to those in your sphere of influence. Your effectiveness - and that of those around you - will increase dramatically.
