Initiative is defined as doing the right thing without necessarily being told. It is the one element that shows genius, that exemplifies knowledge and insight- that brings integrity and credibility to personality. It is the test of authenticity in leadership- and its secret lies in its consistency. Initiative understands that it is about growth and results and nothing to do with politics.
Initiative leads to victories. Winning gives us confidence. People who won’t handle problems are people with histories of failure. Initiative is about possibilities- endless, unbounding possibilities, it is about effectiveness- charging your challenges for inspiration, growth, prosperity, change and success. It is driven by a deep sense of purpose and a different kind of perspective.
It understands that transformation is an individual response to the issues at hand. Whosoever steps out first, will step out alone. It gives encouragement, success for most people come after someone else has done the impossible.
It invites participation and partnership. Other people cannot follow our inward hopes and dreams; they follow our visible commitments. Commitment is contagious, people will only catch what has already caught you.
Initiative seeks to exploit the full benefits that the present moment bequeaths. Even if you are on the right track, you will get runover if you just sit there. Initiative creates the future. What we think or believe is of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do. Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. . IT is is not anything to be waited but a thing to be achieved.
Initiative shows faith and courage. It expresses the conviction of the soul, it shows determination, and perseverance. It understands the big judgement would be what we did with our time. Do not wait foe leaders, do it alone, person to person. Refuse to just exist and grasp life’s potential to be all that you can be.
Initiative is trust in our judgments and abilities.It is optimism; finding that one reason why it can all work. Make visible, what without you, might never have been seen. It refuses to settle for what life gives, and goes after what it wants. It cuts its own path and makes life happen.
Initiative is urgency. Anything worth doing is worth doing now. Without a sense of urgency, desire loses all its value. We are the ones we have waiting for.
