Filled with never-before-released material from Dr. Covey, this audio includes new and insightful examples in the author's trademark engaging speaking and teaching style.

  • You Can Take Control: Habit 1 takes head-on the victim mentality that paralyzes and hampers so many people. Habit 1 says, You are not a product of your circumstances; you can choose your response to every situation you face.
  • More Than an Audiobook: This is not a reading of the Habit 1 chapter from The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People. Instead, this content is drawn from a variety of recordings of Dr. Covey teaching this important principle. The result is an intimate and thorough exploration of what it means to Be Proactive, including relevant, current examples to illustrate the points.
