This book, an international best seller, provide every one with some ideas, tools and techniques to develop one’s personality.
Habit one: Become Pro-active
People are product of their own choices.
The Seven habits of Highly Effective People, as the name indicates, is about seven characteristics which every one can develop to become more effective and influential.
‘I am always like this’, ‘My parent did this to me’, ‘My environment is not good’.
Listen to words people speak around you. Its not what happens to you which is irritating, its your response due to which you may become unhappy, sad or angry.
Don’t be active – be pro-active!
What does that mean? People either wait for things to happen or they think what can be done and act themselves.
