Recently I got accepted in this project , GROW and today we had our first session . It’s the third time I participate . It’s about improving your English , getting to know yourself , stuff like that . Non-formal education .
So , today we talked about proactivity . Proactivity means taking control of your life , be responsible for your actions , get involved . For example , if you fall , don’t wait for someone to come and help you get up , just take control .. get up ! :)
At first I thought that being proactive means being always busy but on the second thought I realized that it’s not bad if you learn how to organize your priorities . At GROW we also have time and money management sessions , so in the end you can be a proactive person while managing your time according to your priorities .
When I think about proactivity I think about being the flow , not going with the flow . I think that if you want to be a proactive person , you have to be self-confident . Self-confidence is like .. the key for surviving this life .
At one point , our trainer said that if you know you can’t do something because you don’t like it , just leave it . If it’s not for you , leave it . Go do something productive , something you enjoy . Focus on the things you enjoy doing . For example , if you want to learn german but you don’t like it , go for another language . On one hand I agree with this , it’s better not to do it that do it wrong ; but on the other hand , I think you should try again and again until you succeed .
We have this amazing trainer from
, Rabia . She’s great , and I really felt like I learned something .. productive
.. today . Pakistan
About the project , I’m really glad someone made it happen ; taking into consideration the economical crisis we have to face , it’s really hard to find sponsors .
