Today’s minimotivator from Rita Mae Brown on action vs reaction

Action vs Reaction

Today’s minimotivator.

A life of reaction is a
life of slavery,
intellectually and
spiritually. One must
fight for a life of action,
not reaction.

Rita Mae Brown

Too often we are bouncing around like a pinball from one reaction to the next.

Ping! Ping! Ping! Ping!

This looks like we’re busy. This looks like we’re taking action.

We’re not.

We’re reacting to the things that come at us day after day. The only time this occurs to us is when something jolts us to our senses for a minute. And we see the reality of the game we’ve put ourselves in.

Ping! Ping! Ping! Ping!

Then before you know it, it’s game over!

Come to your senses more often. Rise above the game and start taking action.
