“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
It's easy to just go along with what is happening, but sometimes, that will do nothing good for you. You simply get lost in the situations designed by others, and you become powerless.
Instead, be proactive! Take the lead; be the first! It's not always easy, but you have to get out of your comfort zone and go for it. Take it one small step at a time, and learn to be proactive the right way!
