yes yes I know.. it's one of those annoying old hype words that we have learned to hate.. but come on, have you ever thought how much power lies behind this clichéd catch phrase?
Check it out:
"...proactive behavior (or proactivity) by individuals refers to anticipatory, change-oriented and self-initiated behavior... Proactive behavior involves acting in advance of a future situation, rather than just reacting. It means taking control and making things happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen." (wiki)
Don't you think this makes for an excellent approach to healing!?
