Value over Impulse

The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person. – Stephen Covey
I love this quote . . . this is the ultimate Above the Line approach to any situation. This is the heart of getting your mind right.
We strive to live discipline-driven lives. We prepare to be intentional and we enable our self-talk to act in a purposeful way. The ability to take that impulsive, autopilot response and press pause is key to Above the Line actions. This is the heart of self-control and the soul of purposeful living.  

Too often in our world today we seek the immediate solution or feel-good answer. Too often we cave to our impulse without reflecting on our values. Be proactive . . . live the life worthy of your values
