A Life of reaction uses more energy than what is needed. You’re always on the back foot if you have a natural inclination to wait for things to happen before you react. In fact, “react” really means to act backwards. It is not that unforeseen things do not happen to the positive predispositioned, but they develop a habit of acting in rather than reacting to the situation.
Insiders are people who “pre-acts” life in a way that they position themselves to be at the “right place on the right time”. They develop an eye for opportunities and grow courage to take the gap. Yes, it is a high-risk life, but then, the higher the risk, the better the yield.
Greatness never happens by chance, it grows from cultivating courage, developing an eye and pre-acting to life.
